LOL - I was like that the first trimester and some days I am starving all day long. I just eat lots of small meals - 6 times a day. LOL. But I TRY to make them healthy - like now I am having a cucumber & tomato salad and ham and 1 piece of wheat bread. Not TOO bad...I try to control my portions because I swear I could eat a TON in one sitting. *sigh*
oh YES!!!! HUNGER is all I can say!! FOOD is on my mind ALL the time!! I went to a book party the other day wondering what the hostess would be SERVING!!! LOL!!!<br>
And if I don't eat??? I get quesy , and jittery , and very shakey!! Like total sugar plumet! I just make them healthy and eat eat eat!!!<br>
My baby likes PROTEINS!!!<br><br>
I wish I could eat like a linebacker! I get hungry all the time, load up a plate, because I feel like I could close down a buffet, and then get full after a few bites. Like, uncomfortably stuffed kind of full.<br><br>
And then 2 hours later i'm loading up another plate <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/upsidedown.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="upsidedown">
Oh yes, my new favorite topic is food. In the first tri, I thought of food constantly because I was too sick to eat it. I had an appetite, but even if I dared eat something, it would be back up. So I would just fantasize about wonderful meals.<br>
Now I EAT! Lots of pineapple(craving it), chicken, bowls(almost always more than one) of cereal, huge salads, and constantly drinking juice.<br>
It's wonderful to be able to satisfy my appetite, but also bothersome to constantly be taking snacks with me while running errands...or else I would starving within that half hour and end up at a BurgerKing! So lots of healthy snacks, and just lots of eating in general. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/goorganic.jpg" style="border:0px solid;" title="go organic">:
I feel like I've been eating a ton all along, even WHEN I felt like crap.<br><br>
A few days ago I started really having bad sugar crashes - I think I wasn't feeling so bad anymore so I thought I could not be as attentive to eating often. Since then I've been eating about 8 (yes, 8!!!) small meals a day. Protein, complex carbs, NO sugar or I feel yuck yuck yuck. Which is no fair. My first pg I could eat sugar all day if I wanted to and feel fine (which isn't normal for me.)<br><br>
But you know what? I gained over 50 lbs with my first pg and I lost it ALL by the time DS was 14 months. My pre-pg weight this time was the same as my pre-pg weight last time. So I'm not worried!
I totally eat like I've been starved!And I'm starting to get full while I'm still hungry!!!I really relate to the eating habits of hobbits with "second breakfasts",and "elevensies"... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> What is getting to me now,is loving a great meal,and as I chew my last bite,I gag!I spit out every last bite of everything I eat!!!So laaaaaaaaaaaaaaamme!
