Hungry yet?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Anyone else noticing the appetite kicking into high gear? I had two eggs, a cheese stick, and a piece of whole grain toast three hours ago and my tummy is already rumbling!!!

YES! I had 3 pieces of lasagna last night and couldn't believe that I felt like I could actually eat more after I consumed them. (It was so good though :) ...

So, so hungry. All the time. hungry hungry hungry! Unless there's food in front of me and then I only sometimes feel like eating. smile.gif Hoping things level out, or at least I want to eat what I get soon.

I wish. My digestive system is on strike. I eat a normal size meal (smaller portions than pre pregnancy) and I might be able to eat again in 7 hours if my stomach cooperates.

I am kind of hungry all the time. Nausea is almost gone. I do have to eat at least a little something every 2 hours or so or I will go into starve mode.

I have been starving hungry since about 6wks (13wks5days today) and having to eat constantly even though it makes me feel really sick when I eat! Hoping I'm going to be able to enjoy food again soon instead of just forcing myself to eat to keep the low blood sugar/insane hunger at bay!

I'm finally able to eat more yay! But now indigestion is kicking in almost every time I eat greensad.gif I'm happy to not be nauseous in bed though. The last 3 weeks were rough.

I'm not so queasy and food aversions are abating, but I get full so fast. I'm used to feeling that pregnancy super hunger, and it's not kicking in yet, though I am starving in the morning. It doesn't take much to fill me up, though. I miss being able to eat a bunch.

Another insatiable appetite over here. For the first trimester I had a hard time eating much. I wouldn't get nauseous often but I would get uncomfortably full and bloated quickly. Now that's over and I'm shocked at the amount of food I can put back - and honestly I'm quite enjoying in :)

Ugh, I really wish I had a great appetite!  I haven't felt nauseous since like, 9 or 10 weeks, but the lack of appetite has come and gone pretty frequently.  It has been a struggle to find anything I want to eat again in the last week or 2, and I thought it was a resp infection causing it, but now that that has subsided it seems to just be my normal for the moment.  It is super annoying, as someone who usually can't stop eating.  I'm trying to do the Brewer Diet (or some version at least) in efforts to expand my blood volume since I am at higher risk of pre-e, but all I can get down are banana, peanut butter, coconut milk smoothies.  Ahhhhh.  I'll be 15 weeks in a few days.

Although my appetite seems pretty healthy, my digestion seems so slow that I still feel like I have food in my system by the time the next meal-time rolls around.  And I am still so bloated.  Any suggestions on how to speed up digestion for the sake of the next meal.

yep, same here. this whole digestion thing is a major nuisance. I feel like I don't know how to read my body's hunger/full cues anymore. Last pregnancy I used papaya enzymes but I don't want to use gmo papaya and I can't find a gmo free one...grrrr!!!

I've been having a craving for spring rolls for the past two weeks. Usually I don't care much for them. The chocolate cravings are going away finally.

Mine picked up about 12wks 4 days... I started eating non stop! Now it's gone back down to "normal" and by normal I mean not a large appetite.
