I've noticed that if it gets too close to lunch or dinner & I haven't had a snack, I'll feel badly. The best way I can describe it is almost like menstrual or intestinal cramps. It's certainly not a feeling that makes me think, "Hmmm, I should eat something", but eating is what fixes it. Since I've become aware of it (thanks to DH), I'm doing pre-emptive snacking & things seem to be going better.

I'm starting to have that issue. I'm making sure a have a few small, high protien snacks through out the day and that has really helped.

Same here! And some of my nausea seems to only be helped by eating, it's weird. It was almost that feeling of eating too much but I knew it wasn't that, so I tried eating, and it helped. So strange.

If I don't eat I get incredibly dizzy! I haven't gotten sick yet-just dizzy!

It's weird but I feel already that my appetite has increased. I don't know if that is a good thing I also get dizzy plus the shakes if I don't eat. It could be that I'm nursing too. Don't know.

I am also a lot hungrier the past few days. And the fatigue has just hit, too. But more than snacking every 2-3 hours, I am constantly thirsty! I am nursing a toddler, too, so maybe the combination with pregnancy is really getting to me. Is anyone else so continually thirsty? Even after drinking water I still feel much the same.

Mama to dd born 7/2005, dd born 12/2007 and dd born 11/2009.

This is where I'm at too. Although, I notice it's much worse or I actually do barf if I don't eat pretty constantly.

I've got this near-constant niggling little bit of nausea that follows me throughout the day that gets better or worse, depending on when I've eaten. If I go too long without eating, it gets worse but if I eat too much, or the wrong thing, it gets worse too. So incredibly annoying.

: It's very annoying. I have been using Sea Bands since a few days before I got my BFP and they just seem to take the edge off, if they help at all.

We're due the same day, and you have just described me perfectly. I just made myself a nice healthy dinner, got halfway through and just couldn't bear the thought of finishing it (and it wasn't that much...piece of chicken and a little cauliflower). But I was SO hungry before I ate. Now I just feel like I have menstrual cramps, and my boobs are getting so heavy that my shoulders ache.
Hard to believe I've been waiting for this all of my life.
