I feel constantly hungry all the time non stop. At the end of a meal I still feel like there's a big gap that I can't seem to fill (and I am eating big portions). I also often have a feeling like I'm lacking something or never quite satisfied. I know bfing can make you hungry so just wondering if this much is normal or if it might be that I could be lacking in something as I have a restrictive diet . I am eating alot btw - it's not like I'm depriving myself, if anything, I feel like I eat way too much and wish I didn't feel so incredibly hungry so I could eat less (I do try eating less btw but I just get terribly low blood sugar feeling). Oh, and I have 3 mo DD
Yes, normal. I am even worse now I'm tandem feeding, I ate the in-laws out of house and home when we went to stay Just try and stick to healthy stuff andchocolate and monitor your weight if you're worried. But if you're hungry then it means you need the calories! Don't forget to keep hydrated too.
hunger def normal and its only now baby is 9mths and weaned him down to 3 feeds a day I have started to feel less hungry but still eats loads and I weigh less than I did before pregnant - prob due to walking lots too.
cake is def vital for breastfeeding mums - esp when marks and spencers have their cakes on 2 for £3 its must to buy them yum yum choc fudge cake!!! (oh and eating 1/2 a famil size trifle is normal too)
gosh, well, sort of glad this is normal but at no one warning me. I actually wonder if completely hormonal this week as am now not sleeping properly and feeling really queasy with tiredness/low blood sug and generally a hormone machine - I assume this is all normal

Yes! I ate everything I could get hold of for the first few months - particularly the 4 month growth spurt. On DS's 1st birthday I was 20lb lighter than my booking in appointment weight (although, DS and I together were pretty close to it!) so he must have ended up with all the cake.
