Constantly Starving?

Anyone else feel like they are always hungry? I can eat and then within 2 hours it feels like I haven't eaten in days!! It's driving me crazy. But when I do eat, I find that I can only eat a small portion of the meal because I get so full really quickly. So I try to constantly snack on fruits and other healthy snacks. Please tell me I am not starving alone! LOL

Nope, you're not alone. I am experiencing the exact same thing. I know we are going to have dinner within an hour or so, but I just ate a small dish of egg salad...I couldn't wait any longer!

Oh and this is the first time in my life that I seriously leave food on my plate at almost every meal.

It's so weird. When I first found out I was pregnant I had NO appetite and now I will eat everything in sight as long as I am not nauseous. It's perfectly normal Smile

Me,too! Try to get protein in your snacks!!! It holds you over better.

Yep, but then when I do eat, I get sick, so I'm hungery again, but can't eat because I am sick.

Second Trimester, where are you?!?!?!?

This is happening to me too! I feel hungry a lot more, but I get full SO much faster! It's so weird. I've been eating more fiber lately to try to keep me feeling full longer (and also help with constipation...ugh). It's hard for me to eat smaller meals throughout the day at work though, which is kind of annoying. Good thing there's only 18 days of Kindergarten left til summer vacation!

Yes and I really do eat everything on my plate and more then feel so nauseous. I don't know which is worse, the nausea from being hungry or the one after eating. I need a break from it already! Pity party time!

ditto to everything above!!! i can only eat small portions, but im eating pretty frequently. i absolutely can not eat at night which is a big change for me. i used to always eat after dinner, now i simply can not. but i added a between breakfast and lunch snack that i never needed before lol.

Ugh. I almost puked reading that. :puke2: LOL!

I think I'm eating something little about every hour or so, and then decent meals in between!

We went to Subway the other day, and I ordered a foot-long thinking I'd eat half of it there and save the rest of it for later... I've never eaten a whole foot-long in one sitting before. Smile

I am 100% this way!! I will fill a plate like no other because I'm so hungry and find I can only eat 1/3 of it. So frustrating because 20 minutes later I'm searching for the next thing to eat. And I am always searching for snacks.. pikels, chips, cookies. It's definately weird. Big foods like meat make me nautious but junk food sounds amazing all the time.

You're definitely not alone there! I swear I feel like I'm ALWAYS eating! It's really hard, too, because I'm trying to keep my calorie intake at 2000 per day (I'm heavier than I'd like to be and doc said it was OK to ensure no extra weight gain besides baby) and I feel like I'm being a cheater by eating whenever I'm hungry!
