Nearly 38 weeks, can't stop eating

As above really! I'm hungry all the time and its partly boredom too. I was weighed at 36 weeks and have only put on 8lbs so I think I feel like eating a bit more isn't so bad. But stuffing myself isn't good is it? Some of it has been healthy stuffing but also loads of bread and chocolate.

Anyone else?

I am 38 weeks and haven't stopped eating since Xmas! Feel hungry loads but also currently have a terrible sweet tooth & keep eating loads of chocolate which I don't normally do. Am trying to stick to little and often so that overall not eating too much but not sure that's working!

Im 38 weeks and Ihave put on 2.5 stone!

I started at 9 stone 9, I'm reasonably a small framed size 8 normally... I'm literally all bump though and not fat anywhere else and I eat what and when I want. Don't worry!!

Haha, I'm in the first trimester and can't stop eating! There's no hope for me then...

I'm 39 weeks and just the same. I figure that it's our bodies telling us that these babies need some help chubbing up before they come out. I'm happy to oblige smile

Hooray, I'm glad I'm not the only one! I'm currently munching a bowl of Cheerios.

This is an accurate depiction of me right now:

I was exactly the same late pregnancy. Sudden development of sweet tooth! Apparently you burn 10,000 cals in an average labour- you body is just stocking up! 3mths down the line I am back to my pre-pregnancy weight! Enjoy food while you can!
