I'm the same way, I do get nauseous when I get hungry, so I eat more, and I gain more... I've gained 20+ pounds in both of my first trimesters. Despite knowing that it's awful to have real morning sickness, there is a little part of me that would like just a little more nauseousness to both reassure me that everything is OK and help me not gain 20lbs!! I'm trying very hard to snack lightly, and eat smaller meals, but I've been eating TONS at dinner because I'm not bringing enough snacks to work... My meals have been:
7:30am Cereal for Breakfast
9:30am Settled in at work, yogurt or fruit
11:00am- the yogurt or fruit I didn't eat earlier
noon- sandwich and fruit or cut veg, or leftovers
2pm- fruit or something, if I have manged to bring enough and not eat it all by now!!
6:30pm- dinner, a ton of food because by now, I am absolutely STARVING.
10pm- up from napping while putting kids down, snack, leftovers, hummus, cereal, etc. and back to bed.
I've been craving fruit and veggies, lots of veggies, mushrooms, bell peppers, salads, yumm! I hope this keeps up, much better than the McD's cheeseburger and milkyways craving of DD's pregnancy
