<p>Omg I am so hungry like allllllllllllllllllll the time! I guess they have hit another growth spurt because over the last week or so I am eating nonstop. I eat 2 big macs a DAY. Also 2 eggs, peanuts/butter, fruit, salad, ice cream, 3 bowls of cereal at LEAST, granola bars, popcorn, some meat product for supper.......I thought with twins you were not supposed to eat that much in the ending month or so because you had no room......????????? Im HUGE but I can still eat with the best of them. I am starting to envy Adam on man vs food and eyeing up his 2.4 pound burger that he cant eat..Im thinking yeah, Id take you on and still have room for dessert!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! UGH! I will be so so so so so so so glad when I am NOT hungry or NOT have to eat. IF I ignore the hunger the babies beat the crapola out of me until I get up and eat. Persistant girls.lol</p>

<p>Well, I just have a singleton pregnancy, but I feel like I know what you mean!  Breakfast is 2 pieces of sourdough toast with butter and two scrambled eggs with hot sauce.  Lunch is a good portion of leftovers from the previous night's dinner, PM snack is a giant bowl of cereal (not healthy, this week its Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Apple Cinnamon Cheerios), then dinner (fish tacos tonight!) and then dessert.  So help me if there is no dessert!  :)</p>

<p>i hear you mama! i had about a month off from not waking up in the night to eat...and now it's back! up at 4am to eat, eat all day! <img alt="greensad.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/greensad.gif"> it's a lot of work! and i feel like my husband frequently says, "you're already hungry again?" then we go find me something to eat! he's still shocked by my hunger...i'm just tired of thinking of what to eat. it's so much easier when someone just puts a plate in front of me and i wipe it clean! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"></p>
<p> </p>

<p>I'm the opposite. I'm surprised I'm not more hungry than I am. I have to eat every few hours, but it's not a whole lot, not really any more than I eat when I'm not pg. Of course I still manage to gain 1-2lbs a week and my babies are measuring bigger than their age, so I must be getting enough.</p>

<p>It seems like i'm hungry constantly. Its sooo annoying. Last night all I could think about was eatings eggs over easy on toast. I seriously could've eaten six, no problem! I went for a sandwich after I had three, though. I'm weird about egg yolks and cholesteral...I normally don't eat the yolk at all but man! did it sound good!!</p>

<p>I'm seriously snacking two or three times between lunch and dinner, at least, and then two or three snacks before bed. I try to eat a lot of fruit but those sugary cereals always seem so appealing!</p>

<p>me too! i get so tired of thinking about what to eat- on the weekends, i just want my dh to take over and think for me. this weekend he made me so happy- moussaka!!  i just finished the left overs today for lunch.... but what about tomorrow???</p>
<p> </p>
<p>the other night, in one of my nightmares- i knew that the police were coming soon and that i would have to go to prison, and my main concern was food "i wonder if they will just let me eat one last good meal before i have to eat prison food for the rest of my life." lol</p>

<p>ashley- i had the same thought about breast feeding the other day-  "oh no! this never ending search for food is not going to end anytime soon!" with dd2 (who went from 8lbs to 11and 1/2lbs in her first three weeks,) i learned what people with a "sweet tooth" go through. i was in <strong>need</strong> of chocolate and cake and everything with sugar!</p>

<p>I have to make myself eat most of the time, and no matter what I eat, instant heartburn. If I am busy I will forget to eat. In my first trimester I barely gained because I had no motivation to cook anything and my appetite was just gone! So different from my last two pregnancies where I gained 80lbs and 50lbs. I stepped on the scale this morning and I'm +18lbs at almost 29w6d. I guess I'm doing pretty good. Finally starting to look pregnant.</p>
