Anyone else HUNGRY!

Now I seem to be back in a phase of waking up hungry. The past few mornings I've woken at 4am and had to eat.
What do you eat when you don't want to wake the rets of the household, or put any energy into food prep in the dark?
This morning I had yogurt with grapes, an almond butter, honey, and shredded coconut sandwich, and I am about to eat a banana. But I need more!!!!

Well I have come to the point where I am STARVING or FULL. It doesn't take much to change from one to the other! If I eat a bunch of grapes or a banana I feel ill eating any more. I found that fruit keeps me full for a long time.
Cereal and milk, oatmeal and bagels are all food I have been enjoying since they are easy to make when that STARVING feeling hits.

I have been more hungry lately. I don't have much room though so I fill up quick. Last night I ate ice cream at 11 and woke up at 5 starving.
I've been hungry off and on throughout the last 5 or 6 months. It had gone away but this past week I it has come back with a vengence. I can barely get full and I start shaking when it comes time to eat because I am so hungry! Last night I ate dinner and then DH and I were playing a card game so I should have been distracted. But, less than an hour after finishing dinner I was so hungry again that I had to go and have a snack!
I can see that I'll gain a ton of weight over the next few weeks. Oh WELL!! haha

I'm hungry a lot, but once I put more than a couple of ounces of food in my belly I am so full I am sick. This morning a yogurt and a banana left me feeling ill for two hours.

Now it is lunchtime and I am dreading the "too full" feeling this afternoon.

I can't wait until July 3... maternity leave starts and I can graze all day at home instead of being stuck with set meal times and filling up then!!
I picked up some carob energy chews today, those should be good for "middle of the night emergencies"! I've had the too full feeling too, and am surprised at how much I've been eating these past few days b/c babe is still very high. Knock on wood, I'm having an excellent time of things right now! (Aside from a few stray punches into my bladder or cervix).
Still eating over here! No wonder I'm already over the "average" weight gain for a 40 week pregnancy. :LOL I'm gonna have such rich milk!
My family has started teasing me about how much I love food right now! I feel the need to eat about every 2 hours during the day. I keep eating until about 30 minutes before I go to bed. I guess I'm lucky that I still have room for all that food and I haven't experienced heartburn yet. My favorite quick-fix foods are yogurt smoothies (it seems like every week the grocery store has a special on some variety of these) and energy bars. Ah, food....
