I normally find it really easy to tell whether I am really hungry, peckish, ok or completely stuffed, but at 27 weeks pregnant, my stomach doesn't seem to be sending the signals to my brain anymore. I'm not even sure exactly where my stomach is located at the moment!!
I'm having to use other ways to know when to start and stop eating. If I hear rumbling noises or start to feel a bit weak and unsteady, I know I must be hungry, and if my bump starts feeling tight and it's getting more difficult to swallow, I assume that means I've eaten enough. It's very strange feeling more or less the same before and after a meal.
I don't remember feeling like this in my first pregnancy. Anybody else experiencing this?
YES!!! Glad you articulated it as I couldn't figure out what is going on. I am also 27 weeks! I am just having to stick to habit to work out when to east. It feels very odd not having any of those hunger / satisfaction msgs going to your brain..... !
Yep am with you lightsandshapes I can only taste really really strong stuff like onion or curry type stuff. Everything else seems bland. Am always thirsty too but definitely no concerns over this. Sigh.
YES! So glad you posted this as I thought it was just me.
I know I'm not eating even nearly enough - I go all day at work without eating at all. Had a small bowl of stew last night for dinner and I felt sick like I'd eaten way too much but was also still hungry as it was all I'd had all day
Am 31+4 and have same thing and keep being sick but am hungry 5 min later. Made the comment to my mum that my eyes were bigger than my stomach - she took one look at by bulging belly and said "I don't think so dear" - whole restaurant heard and giggled.
