Ok, so I had a ton of nausea and am still (rarely) throwing up in the a.m....I'll be 19 weeks on Wed. and as of a couple of weeks ago I had gained maybe 5 lb...on Fri. I found out I gained 13 lb (!) and I have to say I am just so incredibly hungry...the midwives asked me to do this nutritional exercise and write down everything I eat for three days and wow...I'm hungry! Mostly high quality, with some desserts...and to think I hope to keep it to 35 lb this time...we'll see. Anyone else have an appetite that just EXPLODED like mine recently?

By for now, I have to go look in the fridge...

Oh yes. I love food, pregnant or not, but suddenly I'm ravenous. I am so tired of feeling hungry all the time. I'm so tired of eating! But I'm still having some food aversion, so I'm not sure I'm eating enough. Bleah.

I'm with you!

My afternoon snack has gotten bigger, and so have my lunches.

Also having a bedtime snack most nights. I started having one early on so I could take my vitamins and go to sleep (to avoid the yuck of vitamins). It's worked great and now I'm still doing it!

yup. second breakfasts and lunches every day. still haven't gained any weight, but i think that is because it is being counteracted by some muscle loss from not working out so much. not a great combo, but oh well.

Me too. Not snacking too much between meals (well, apples) but I'm definitely having seconds a lot more than usual. And things taste REALLY good!

It's been a couple of weeks now I am eating all day long. I don't really eat full meals but I am nibbling on something almost every 1-2 hours. I hope to gain less this time around because I started out a little heavier than last pregnancy but we'll see.

enjoying motherhood way more than science:

I am 17w2d today and all of a sudden it has hit me. I have actually not gained any weight yet (down a couple of pounds) so I have been worried about that. I assume that will change soon, I hope I packed enough in my lunch.

So hungry!! I'm 17w 2d, I'm finally not sick at all so at least healthy rawish stuff sounds good now. I always gain so much in the 1st and 2nd tri- the first because I eat constantly to ward off puking, and in the 2nd because I'm so hungry.

I read the baby grows a lot between 16-19 weeks. I was SO HUNGRY a couple weeks ago, but it has kind of evened out. I'm not eating a second breakfast, and if I eat a small quick lunch and a single helping at dinner, I'm fine, although if there's dessert, I'm all over it.

What kills me though is that during that 2 weeks, I gained FOUR POUNDS! I was down three, so I'm only up one for the pregnancy, but I was already overweight and I don't think I'm going to get to exercise, so I really want to go slow on the weight gain.

A big protein breakfast really helps me a lot. I noticed on the days I have cereal for breakfast, I could eat a horse.

I am glad I am not the only one wanting 2nd breakfast and eating more... makes me feel better that maybe it is something to do with the 16-19 weeks time frame so that it might not continue. I also gained 2 pounds last week.

But my total of 13 pounds up now my midwife said that was fine and she was happy with that. I think it is less then where I was last time (I gained 56) so I am not too unhappy about it.

My MD said I lost 14 lbs in the month before I found out I was expecting. My BP was high and I was dehydrated so MD said get to OB right away. OB said I had HG. I was really sick for about 9 weeks, eating mainly rice and applesauce. I didn't start gaining weight until about 3 weeks ago.

I have a few foods I eat daily. Big salad, string cheese, pb&j and lots of milk.

I crave spaghetti and meat sauce.

I had food aversions before pregnancy - no chicken, hot dogs (or hot dog shaped food) and yogurt. My hubs keeps waiting for me to ask for them. LOL!
