Day 14, and I have never been so hungry in my life - in fact, I could not have imagined such hunger. It is mind-blowing!
Today, I got up and ate a large bowl of lentil/potato/brown rice stew for BREAKFAST. I packed a "snack" of an apple and a sandwich for work, and I wound up eating that for breakfast, too. When I got home from work four hours later, I ate: another large sandwich, an apple, a bowl of brown rice, half a large yellow squash, some brussels sprouts, another apple, a bunch of cashews, and some ice cream. I think I am forgetting something, but you get the idea. I'm HUNGRY. My husband is in shock, watching me. He alternates between laughing and watching me with his mouth hanging open. It really is quite unbelievable. Did my stomach double in size overnight? Where am I fitting it all?
It makes me remember stories I've heard about women who made it months into pregnancy without realizing they were pregnant, and I'm a little baffled. I am on day 14, and I feel like I have been replaced by a really sleepy hippopotamus (hippos eat alot, right?). Is it a good sign, being this hungry so soon? Oh, I hope this baby sticks around.
