I've been starving all the time the last several days. I think partly because the weather has cooled down some and partly because baby is gaining so much right now.

2 hours ago I had 2 big plates of pasta and veggies with pesto sauce. Now I'm having a small ham sandwich and an apricot.

I wonder what I'll eat for dinner!?

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

My appetite sucks! I don't feel like eating anything, though I snack through the day. I usually love to make dinner/food for us but I'm a total zombie in the kitchen now, like I just stand in front of the fridge and wondering what I'm going to eat/make... stinks!

I've got three monkeys jumping on the bed!!

Non-existent.

Our high today was 104 degrees. At 5:30 pm it's still 101 degrees. I just ate a bowl of grapes. That's all I feel like eating.

Sorry, mama. When I had ds 3 years ago it was a summer like that. It was completely awful. I liked eating frozen blueberries. Still do

I have eaten the weirdest stuff in the last week... Hamburger helper (made with free range organic ground beef of course), Doritos (cool ranch, yum) and a variety of other MSG filled crap that I haven't eaten in like, a decade. I don't know what is going on, but today i haven't been hungry at all. All I know is this is not the diet in the back of "What to expect...". That book stressed me out when I was preggers with no. 1. All that bran and no empty calories, I really thought women had to eat like that to have healthy babies... Tonight we are riding our bikes over to the pizzeria, I'm pretty sure my appetite will perk up then.:

I've been hungry a lot myself the past couple of weeks. My appetite had slowed down a bit during the last part of the 2nd trimester, but now I'm munchy all the time, and craving bad junk food like Twizzlers and barbecue potato chips. I managed to resist the Twizzlers in the store tonight, but not the chips

I have been more hungry lately here too. This is the 3rd day I am eating couscous with sauteed onion and lots of fresh herbs, lemon and parm. cheese. I swear it is the best thing I have eating this enitre pregnancy. I ate an obscene amount yesterday for lunch, lol. Oh, and I love dove dark bars...those are my sanity helpers, lol.

Gosh, I thought I was the only one with the munchies. I can eat now and then 20 minutes later, I'm hungry again. What's up with that? I try to make sure at least my meals are balanced and I snack somewhat healthy. Lately I've been craving lettuce like crazy. Lettuce and tuna.

I am so hungry at 2 am that I feel like I am going to die. I never make it down to the kitchen though 'cause the stairs are too squeaky and I don't want to risk waking the kiddos. It is nice that baby has dropped and there is more room for food in the tummy without the risk of the awful heartburn!

I was wondering what was going on with me, so glad I'm not the only mamma pigging out. Before I could barely manage to eat a small plate of food, I felt so stuffed and wasnt hungry again for like 6 or 7 hours! But now I can scarf down a giant plate of food and still be looking for food in a matter of hours... I guess this is where they are picking up that extra pound or two huh? So what? when we stop feeling hungry is that when we know they are coming soon?

Hmm... My appetite has returned, but I never really know what I'm hungry for. I've been living on caprese salad and watermelon for the past week or so - they're the only two things that appeal. I wonder what the next "it food" will be for me?

OOH, that's a terrible feeling! You should keep some shelf-stable juice and crackers by your bedside....
