It's ridiculous. Every 2 -3 hours I feel famished! I'm trying to eat healthy things when the urge strikes but it's difficult <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
Anyone else eating like a crazy woman??

I was! I'm trying to just cut back a little bit because I've already gained 18lbs. It may not sound like a lot to some, but considering when they say the normal weight gain per pregnancy should be 25-35lbs, I don't want to go over that if possible. I gained nearly 60lbs with my daughter and had a hard time losing that weight. As I write this I'm munching on a carrot stick! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> So, I understand how you feel about wanting to eat all the time!

Me too...which stinks because I'm really trying to cut back on snacking and stuff (trying to gain a *bit* less than with DD...right now I'm on the same weight gain track, but I'm hoping to slow it up at least). But I totally hear ya. The worst is that I often have something in mind that I want to eat but don't know what it is and I ravage the cupboards without finding what I want and then I get frustrated and pout. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

UGH. I have horrible self-control. I need snacks. I really do. Problem is, I want MORE snacks than I need. I bought some stuff to keep in my classroom to nosh on between meals (granola bars and the like), and I CAN'T KEEP MY GRUBBY MITTS OFF OF THEM!<br><br>
It doesn't help that my schedule is all weird today (first day back from Winter break) and I'm ending up with a LOT more free time than usual... my secret food cupboard beckons...

I am hungry, and for lots of rich carbs - pasta with veggies and beans every night! I have gained 17 lbs so far and am okay with that. A pound a week until I'm done puts me at 34 lbs total, and the same top weight as each previous time, even though I started 10 lbs heavier after each pregnancy.

I'm hungry all the time too! I don't want anything healthy either, I want yummy things like birthday cake and butter pecan ice cream. I'm trying to eat more veggies, but they don't seem to satisfy my hunger.

me! it just started. i try to go for fruit when i'm craving sweets (tip: cook it!! a soft, mushy, warm baked apple with cinnamon and some honey, molasses, or a bit of sugar REALLY tricks your sweet tooth!) i have my own ice cream maker, so i eat a lot of homemade ice cream (which is more like a frozen smoothie, so i dont' feel guilty).<br><br>
i totally know the feeling of rummaging through the cupboards and not finding anything to satisfy my cravings. makes me so annoyed!!

This is definitely me too! It seems like I am starving all the time. I eat and I feel full for like an hour, and then I'm starving again. And like some pp's said, all I want is crap food. I'm trying to eat alot of fruit because raw veggies are still making me gag, but I still end up eating alot of rich foods. I've gained more that 20 pounds already, and am getting really annoyed with myself. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
I brought my sneaks to work today and promised myself I'm going to go to they gym and walk on the treadmill on my lunchbreak.

YES! But as I learned about the twins yesterday, it makes sense now! I just ate a HUGE bowl of steel cut oats an hour and a half ago and I'm grumbling again....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

This was EXACTLY how I felt during my first pregnancy. Exactly - eat eat eat and then be hungry again after an hour. And not just "hmmm I could use a nibble" but "OH DEAR GOD WHERE IS THE FOOD I AM STARVING."

I'm sorry but that is AWSOME! My last post mentioned something about going to the gym on my lunchbreak, but my co-worker brought in huge chocolate pudding cupcakes covered in vanilla frosting and M&M's, so I ate one of those instead. Gawd... what is WRONG with me?

After that, I was thinking, "Okay, this is one less cookie I get later today..." By the end I decided I get NO MORE today. Not sure if that'll happen.<br><br>
BTW- I can't believe I even allowed myself to make cookies. Here I was doing so well with not eating much junk and now I have a batch of cookies that SOMEONE needs to eat and I certainly can't waste them. I'd freeze them but there's no room in the freezer. LOL Guess I'm stuck.
