I just ate a banana, a peanut butter sandwich and a large glass of soymilk. It's about 9:30pm. We'll see if I wake up starving to death tonight. : Last night I thought 3 pancakes stacked with pb in the middle, covered in maple syrup and a glass of cranberry juice would have held me, but NOooo. At 12:30 I had to have 2 bananas and a soy yogurt.

With my last pregnancy I did not have this through-the-night-starvation at 7+ months. It went away by 5.

My appetite has actually dwindled a lot. I was really hungry months 3-6 or so. I'd just listen to your body. It's telling you what your baby needs to grow, especially at this point when they're gaining so quickly.

Happily parenting our snuggly wild child since 2007 and her little brother since 2011!

I wake up starving at about 4 or 5 am, but I am too lazy to get out of bed. At 7:00 when DS gets up I practically RUN to the kitchen though.

I often wake up and am hungry but its usually too much effort to go get food lol. I keep a big glass of water in the bathroom and usually that does the trick.

My appetite is all over the place though. THere are days when I'm not very hungry at all, and others, like today, where an hour after eating my tummy's rumbling again.

I have a hard time eating during the day but at night it seems to be easier. I usually eat quite abit around 2am, the other night DH found me eating meatloaf, and green beans at 3am, he laughed and joined me.

I still wake up in the middle of the night hungry, but if I eat anything, the heartburn is ferocious.

Uh huh...this is me...the midnight/middle of the night snacker.

Sometimes the only thing that stops me from eating (and getting a drink of water/juice instead) is the fact that I don't want to wake dh as I make a snack.

I'm an early morning/middle of the night snacker. I really don't feel very hungry throughout the day, but get me going too many hours without food and I turn into a crazy woman! DD's night nursing sometimes spikes my hunger as well- I figure its just my body trying to make sure I have enough calories to go around!
