Yup. Not making a difference to my weight though, sorry!

I haven't weighed myself at all this pregnancy because I really don't want to know. I don't think I've put on that much, and would like to keep it that way wink just can't help myself..!!!

I'm just eating a slice of toast in bed! Trying to stop feeling sick!

Don't worry, just listen to your body 😀

I have become really hungry in the past week or two - currently 30 weeks. Portion sizes are getting a bit greedy guts! And I have about three breakfasts on work days...

Just go with it, your body obviously needs it. I just try and eat when I am hungry rather than when meal times dictate.

24 weeks tomorrow and literally eat constantly!! I put 3st on in my first pregnancy so I'm trying to make better choices than just eating chocolate muffins like I did then 🙈 I'm a bridesmaid 8 weeks after my due date too.....I think I need my mouth sewing shut

God, yes.

I actually look like I'm smuggling a pumpkin now. I'm only 13 weeks! WTF?!

Yes same here. I'm usually really controlled but I can't stop stuffing my face at the mo. Only 12 weeks too.

Just ate almost an entire packet of cheddar biscuits and 4 digestives in a futile attempt to stop feeling sick... And only 8+3

I've discovered the bout of neasuea that's only cured by food that plagued my first trimester is making a slight come back at 35weeks. I haven't been an angel with food, I try my best.

Yes! 31 weeks here and I'm absolutely starving most of the time, despite eating three good healthy meals and plenty of snacks every day.

The way I've been thinking about it is that I can't do much to reduce my appetite but I can at least try to avoid satisfying it with really unhealthy foods. I've been stocking up on healthier snacks (stuff like fruit and cereal bars and WeightWatchers chocolate biscuits ) to help me try and avoid eating too much junk food. I also find trying to keep busy helps as if I'm sitting around doing nothing I tend to notice being hungry more than if I'm focusing on doing something.
