Middle of the Night Eating

Not only am I awake every day from 3AM to 6AM but I am absolutely STARVING between those hours. It is 5:30 and I just had to make myself a giant pasta salad. Can't believe I ate almost a pound of pasta and veggies!!! Anyone else get the middle of the night munchies?

Yes!! It is 4 am and I am so hungry!! But I am hoping to fall asleep again quickly so I'm avoiding the kitchen for fear of an upset stomach from eating then going back to bed. I has a weird dream that woke me up to find that my dh still hadn't come to bed. I had to get up to see if he fell asleep on the couch, only to find him up and still working on fixing a bug on my business website!! Poor guy, I feel so bad!

TOTALLY! This has happened to me each time I was pregnant. And protein snacks just dont cut it...has to be carbs! Smile This is probably why I gain so much weight while PG. You are definitely not the only one.

Same here. I wake up between 4-6 and I am absolutely starving. I make myself go back to sleep because I'm trying not to gain much weight. Don't want to be lectured by the dr again.

I have had those most nights but I don't let myself get up. I don't want to have to brush my teeth again, nor do I want to be awake so I just try to ignore it.

I usually want sugary cereal! But like Lisa, I am trying to keep from gaining much so it's what helps ne not get up.
