Growth Spurt???

I'm on my 4th breakfast this morning.. I woke up at about 6:30, and had some yogurt... had two bowls of cereal between 8-9:30 and now I'm having an english muffin ... WHY AM I SO HUNGRY? I was thinking baby's have growth spurts? Or am I just a friggin hippo??? lol

Yes you're growing but so is the wee one. Eat often and eat things full in fiber. They'll help keep you Fuller for longer periods of time. My favorite breakfast right now is grape nuts because it expands so when I eat before seven i'm not famished again before 11:30

I feel ya, I've been trying to do as Erin said and eat high fiber low GI foods to keep me fuller for longer but I still feel like I'm always hungry (this is between 7am-3pm, between 3pm- bedtime I can forget about eating at all due to MS) Maybe my body is trying to make up for what I am losing with the MS?

You had quite bad MS didn't you Renee? Did you lose weight? Maybe your body is making up for it now??

I had ALL day MS until like last week, maybe it is making up for it now because I've gained quite a bit back in the last week (like last Sunday I weighed 168.4 , last night, Friday, I weighed 174.4 ,,, I think I'm already retaining a bit of water too... because really 6lbs in one week??? I don't think so!!!) It was this morning I could not stop eating, I eat on the healthy side so its not like its any empty calories, but the rest of the day it was back to a normal apetite....

I'm already sooooo ready for November lol!!!

I've noticed my appetite has increased too lately. I have also noticed my belly starting to poke out more noticeably too LOL

yes, ive also been more hungry and my stomach is definitely more pronounced, my mother in law is with us and she even noticed it! so exciting (except for all the eating), i COULD NOT SLEEP and had pounding heart last night, thats how hungry i was.

i must try these grape nuts, i'm in NEED of a new breakfast. i normally have vanilla greek yogurt with low fat granola and strawberries but i am SO SICK OF IT, and i liked my greek yogurt as a midnight snack (kept me amazingly full until this morning).

I'm there, too! My appetite has picked up big time as well, and my belly is sticking out more by the minute it seems Wink I feel like I must look 8 months pregnant based on how my tummy feels, but DH says not even close, ha!

LOL Erin. I feel the same way. I feel huge but DH says I'm just barely poking out.
