This may sound silly, but I have PCOS and am on metformin. Before the meds if I felt hungry it was this all consuming soul-crushing hunger that destroyed my life (and really, I'm not exaggerating). WIth metformin I rarely feel hunger at all, but I eat at regular intervals because I'm not stupid. With my last pregnancy, while on metformin, I had absolutely no appetite but I also had hyperemesis gravidarum.
This time around I've had minimal morning sickness and a decent amount of hunger. The past few days that hunger has been getting stronger. If I wait too long to eat (dinner takes long to cook, wait at the restaurant) I start to feel light headed and kind of ill. I have to eat more, craving more protein and often needing easy access to protein (reasons why I'm still eating lunch meat). If I don't, I feel kind of ill.
Is this normal for pregnancy, or should I be concerned that my blood sugar/insulin levels are off?
