Anyone else starving?

This LO has me eating every 3 hours! Today has been specially bad..just can't seem to keep baby fed. I'm afraid of what it's going to be like when I'm further along, am I going to have to eat every hour? I'm running out of things to eat too!

I am not starving but I am happy to star having some appetite back and some desire for food. I was not feeling like eating or grocery shopping or cooking for the first 3.5 months so I am glad to be feeling more normal. With DS I lost 10lbs in the first trimester which I gained back in month 4! With this pregnancy I have took the anti-nausea pills for a month or so and as a result I did not lose any weight- to date I have gained 2 pounds (in the last week or so). I have not been exercising much these last two weeks either since we have been struck by a cold in our house which is making the rounds and zapping everyone's energy.

I was starving all throughout the first trimester. I ate a lot every two hours and would wake up in the middle of the night starving. I couldn't eat enough, I never got the full feeling, and miraculously, I didn't gain even one pound!
Once I got into the second trimester I had the opposite where I really wasn't hungry at all. Funny because now I've gained a pound Smile
I think it must be growing spurts and you just got to go with it!

I'm just happy to be finally getting my appetite back. I wasn't nauseous in my first tri, but I definitely had no desire for food.

even if BF DS and being pregnant I've been so nauseated that food does not seem appealing. I'm finally getting an appetite back and it's a goo thing. Hopefully I'll be able to gain back some of the 10lbs I've lost in the past 13 weeks!

I am too! The thing I've noticed though is that it doesn't matter how much I eat in one sitting, I'm still hungry in about 3 hrs. So I just eat a very little bit each time. Then I feel less guilty coming back a couple hours later. So far it's worked, I was only up 1 1/2lbs the entire pregnancy so far.

It's not that I'm starving, but I feel like I'm eating constantly. I can't eat very much at once any more - I get full really quickly now days. But I have to eat every hour or so or I start to feel icky. I've been keeping my purse, backpack, and desk & fridge at work stocked with granola bars, fresh fruit, and greek yogurt... and I have bottles of water EVERYWHERE...

I'm actually having the opposite effect. This baby seems to be sitting higher or pushing everything up into my chest already and when I eat.. it makes me feel so full it hurts. lol.

If I don't snack, I'm starving; but, like PP, I'm also full quickly and feel like my stomach is in my chest! It really doesn't take much to make me feel like I want to blow! haha
