I'm the same, 17+5, craving pastries like crazy. I find that I can keep the cravings at bay to some extent with a glass of milk. I'm not getting bigger (apart from the bump) yet but worried I'm going to if this continues!
Only started this week for me (22 tomorrow)... dont mind whether it is healthy or not, cereal, fruit, toast, bread sticks, yogurt... anything will do as long as I am easting! Was happy yday because at midwife appt had only put on 2kg since Oct. (I had quite a bit to spare!)... can see that having changed when I see her in a month!
I went for my first doctor's appointment today after finding out I'm pregnant - he told me to eat whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted! Thankfully, because I'm exactly the same and cannot stop stuffing my face full of rubbish! He actually said that foods high in fat like milk, cheese and ice cream are foods I should be reaching for - let's make the most of it while we can ladies!
I'm 15 weeks with twins and I spend nearly all day eating, and eating makes me more hungry half the time. I'm also the same with wanting unhealthy stuff, as the nausea has more or less stopped my body just wants all the things I couldn't eat while feeling sick 24/7 like chocolate, cake, ice cream, doughnuts. My midwife told me I shouldn't eat sugary foods as I'll get gestational diabetes but its impossible to resist sugar for 9 months!
HN42 it's certainly impossible to avoid in entirety so maybe try sticking to food with natural sugars rather than refined sugars when you really feel you need a little boost? Otherwise, crisps and carbs all the way??
