I would say most of my pregnancy I've eaten a normal amount of food (3 meals/3 small snacks each day) but suddenly, the last week or two, I feel like my appetite is insatiable, at certain times of the day. I remember this from before but I can't beleive what I can cram in there! I was wondering what you all are eating and how often in a typical day? FTR I'm 36 weeks along.<br><br>
Today I ate:<br><br>
Breakfast- 5 pieces of banana almond french toast with agave<br>
Snack- millet toast with strawberry cream cheese (1 slice)<br>
Lunch- quinoa with asparagus and mushrooms (1 small bowl)<br>
Snack- bowl of sliced bananas with chocolate pudding and whipped cream<br>
Dinner- this was the clincher- 2 corn tacos which normally would've filled me up, followed a TON of taco meat with lettuce, tomato, and cheese wihtout the shell.<br>
Snack- ice cream sandwich<br><br>
This wasn't the most health concious day, but Saturdays are usually our "who cares what we eat" day. I just can't beleive how much tacos I ate and still wanted more. Like, enough for my entire family. Anyone else?

During my second trimester I was an eating machine. Now that I'm at the end of this pergnancy my body is not feeling very hungry and, when I do eat, I can only have small portions but often... kwim?<br>
When I was pregnant with my dd I was an eating machine the entire time - even right up to the day I delivered. I guess all pregnancies are different <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

I've noticed my appetite picking up a bit recently too. It dropped off to about pre-pregnancy normal for most of the third trimester but, just lately, it's more. Mostly at night I think. A few nights I've had a normal dinner followed by one or two snacks before bed.

I'm so glad it's not just me! All the weekly e-mails are saying "you may have to eat smaller meals since your stomach doesn't have much room..." - HA!!<br><br>
I've been eating like a champ. I've always had a healthy appetite - but lately it's been comical!!
