Input

So, I'm just wondering if this is normal, or if I'm just a complete pig. I am ALWAYS hungry. Always. Don't get me wrong, just because I'm hungry doesn't mean I'm always eating. I'm really trying to watch how much weight I gain during this pregnancy, mainly because I don't want to have to lose a lot of weight afterwards. But the hunger feeling just never goes away. I try to stuff my face with fruit, yogurt, and granola bars to get me through to my next meal.

So, what's up...is this normal? Or is it just that no matter how much I want to gain the minimal, healthy pregnant weight, my body has other plans?

    Totally normal. Once I really got into the pregnancy and my stomach stopped rejecting everything I put into it, it was like I could not get enough to eat for a while. It was almost frightening. I think that's a good thing as long as you eat things that are reasonably healthy. As for how much weight you gain, I think you shouldn't get too fixated on the number as long as you aren't gaining it by eating terrible things. That's what I'm telling myself anyway. :)

  4. haley...i haven't really been fixated on the weight. in fact, i'm surprised i haven't gained more! i'm definitely not starving myself. :)

    embee...i am planning on nursing, so it's nice to know that this feeling isn't going away anytime soon. :(

    tink...no.

  5. Kelly,
    Enjoy stuffing your face! Food never tasted so good as when I was pregnant and starving (which was most of the time). I still get to pig out since I'm nursing, and I actually weigh less now than I did before I got pregnant. Nursing is the best diet!!!
