Hungry all the time??

S anyone else starving constantly? I did not experience this with DS but I am hungry - like I missed a meal hungry - constantly. It's miserable. Could this mean something?

um.. I don't know..I mean, yea, I could eat all day long, but I don't feel like I've missed a meal. In fact, I just had a snack bowl of cereal and I want another one.

Maybe it means you're not getting enough carbs? Are you eating 'light' type stuff?

Well I heard on the radio that a study was done that when you are tired people mistake that for being hungry. I kow I am tired all the time. I am sure though they did not do that study on pregnant woman.

I am unfortunately not eating light stuff, but I am tired a lot. I'm not sleeping very well for some reason. Maybe that's it...

When I get hungry like that I eat protein (nuts, meat, tuna, Greek yogurt) That works for me. Carbs don't curb my appetite in any way. Lol

This is not at all to discount the tired theory. I'm in a constant state of half-awake.

I was like this until 13 weeks. I would STUFF myself and an hour later I would be hungry. I would wake in the middle of the night and have to get something to eat. I can remember telling DH that I was so sick of being hungry.

Peanut butter snacks (apples, toast, or crackers) and lots of water would help, but I assumed it was just my body saying it needed more to eat. It has slowed down, but I am still eating more than I did pre-pregnancy to keel the hunger at bay.

Re: Hungry all the time??

Yes I am starving at all times and have been since the moment I got pregnant. For me, I agree with pp. carbs do not help at all. I need protein and fats. I am trying to eat plenty to keep me from feeling so sick and because I work out a lot and need to make up the calories. So I figure I am hungry cuz I need to eat and eat the right stuff. Another thing is that sometimes people feel hungry when they need to drink more water... I don't know but it's rough, isn't it? I figure it's all part of it.

Re: Hungry all the time??

I am somewhat now, but I really was through the first trimester. I absolutely had to eat every 1.5hrs. Of course, that also helped with the m/s a bit, and then after m/s really kicked in in the late afternoon I didn't eat anything at all... maybe it was just my body playing "catch up" for what I was missing.

Anyways, I'm still feeling it somewhat. But I'm able to eat larger amounts at a time now (like actual meals, lol) and that helps get me through a bit longer. Still eating a good 3 meals and 3-4 snacks a day though!

FWIW, baby is growing like crazy this trimester! And then our bodies are getting fat stores and whatnot, gearing up for breastfeeding
But, seriously. Baby GROWS this next few months.
At 13 weeks he's approximately 3.5" and 1.5oz, by 27 weeks he's more than 10" and 2lbs! That's a low of growing, and never mind the organ development happening in there - it all sucks our energy!
