I feel like I'm eating so much lately. Snacking all the time, etc. I'm still down 4-5lbs from my pre-preg weight, so I'm not gaining a ton (yet ) but I am nervous that if I keep it up, I will be. Please tell me I'm not the only one eating leftovers from dinner at 10:30pm. :

Oh that'd be me! I got in the habit when the ms was bad. I'm trying to just eat little amounts, because I know I'm going to snack. I justify it by telling myself it's practice for 3rd trimester! :LOL

Like Dana my stomach is already a good bit squished so I'm already having acid reflux. It's not bad yet but it makes me very cautious about eating especially close to bedtime.

Depends how you define hungry. I woke up at about 7 and by 9:30 this morning, I had eaten an egg and cheese croissant, a breakfast taco, and an ice cream sandwich (one of the round, saucer kinds). I was starving! But honestly, I'm not always-- it just depends. I tend to eat breakfast twice, a good-sized lunch (I still get hungry early because of the time change, I think), an afternoon snack, and then a really light dinner (more because I'm busy than anything else). I'm steadily gaining weight at this point. We have a digital scale that measures to the half-pound and I feel like it's going up all the time. Grow, baby, grow!

I wake up 1-3 time a night to eat, I guess I'll be ready for NB nursing, lol . Most nights I sleep on the couch downstairs because the walk to the potty and fridge seems so far away at 3 am. Like danaalex, I just can't seem to eat much at once and I'm always starving

i have been known to go for as long as half an hour between meals. and the meals are plenty big. my stomach is not squashed, it just sticks out further when it needs more space. so far my weight hasnt sky rocketed, but it might. for now, i dont care. i am just so glad to be able to eat.

you have no idea. i'm dreaming about food. vivid, wonderful dreams about food. it's become an obsession of mine -- the quest for food!

though, it depends on the day. seems that i'll eat and eat and eat for 3-4 days. then for another few days i'm not eating nearly as much. then back to eating like nobody's business, then back to not eating so much. i had 2 breakfast tacos this morning, though i was full after 1. the thing is that i didn't want to have to reheat the 2nd one an hour later when i was hungry again, so i just ate it!

now, i'm contemplating some hot chocolate. oh, and the other day i made a pan of rice krispy treats. i think dh had 3 of them and dd had a couple. otherwise i ate them all. all of them. by myself. in ONE day!
