I have not had much of an appetite lately.. the last few months I have eaten 3 meals a day, but not heavily.

Last night (I'm just 38 weeks) I woke up at 4 am and HAD to get up to eat.. It was a primal need for food.. and I haven't stopped today. I am starving!!!!

??? why the sudden need to eat?

I don't know why, maybe the baby is just putting on it's final layer of fat and needs the extra food, but I'm super hungry all of a sudden too! I do not need to gain anymore weight at this point, thank you very much , but I'm afraid I'm going to gain until this baby comes out.

Hey Chantal! Remember me? Ivana? Ahem...from you know where...

I just saw that you posted wanted to pop in and tell you I was thinking of you lately. I knew you were due soon. I hope all goes well and wishing you a happy babymoon.

We had tons of fun at your house at the playdate last spring, before you were even pg I think?

Still hope you come on over sometime for a zoo visit. We'd love to have you all. Take care.

How much longer do you think?

I thought it was just me. I am so so so so hungry all the time! My DH even told me to slow down. We ate out bagel sandwiches this morning. My Dh commented about how he was so full. I could've eaten mine *and* his!! When we got home after that, I dashed for the fridge! I am 38 weeks, too. So, who knows what this means, but it is the hungriest I have been the whole pregnancy!

I am so happy I am not alone!

Jean, happy HS mom to Peter (5), Daniel (9) and Lucie (2) and also someone new... baby.gif

I'm 38wks and 2days, and I've been starving hungry for a couple of days now too. I hadn't had much appetite for the few weeks prior to that either. It's like I'm a bottomless pit all of a sudden!

Happily married, busy mom to a houseful :-)

Expecting again early Oct 2014!

He dropped a few weeks ago.. it is more a primal need for FOOD

My DH reminded me I was this way the night I went into labor with my first..

My baby dropped a week or so ago, so maybe that could account for some of it. But, I agree this is a primal need for food feeling!

I'm just the opposite.. my appetite usually vanishes right before I go into labor.:

I'm glad it's not just me. I've suddenly been waking up in the middle of the night, STARVING. I think I've been hungrier during the day, too. I'm 38 weeks today.

Hey Chantal!! Hope that baby gets moving soon!!!

I've had the same thing lately. I only gained 10 lbs total with this pregnancy and never really had an appetite at all. This is very unusual for me being pregnant I'm usually the biggest pig you've ever seen.
I'll be 40 weeks on Tues and just this week, my appetite has really kicked in! DH has been amazed at me and how much I can eat lately. I keep finding myself wandering into the kitchen and standing in front of the fridge. Hopefully this is a sign of impending labor for all of us!! Wahooo

In February DDC....but this must have something to do with being around 38 weeks. I am 37 and a 1/2 weeks, and last night and all day today I can't get enough food.
We ate this huge dinner last night, and an hour later I wanted a whole other plate full of food. Then I got up in the middle of the night, starving!! Now, today, I just feel so happy it's another day that I can eat, eat, eat!! They're doing something that demands food. Maybe it's a labor preparation thing. Here's hoping!!
