Is being starving hungry constantly an early sign of pregnancy?

I am not ready to 'out' myself yet but just wondered if this was a common sign of early pregnancy?

These last couple of days I cannot stop eating and my stomach seems to be permanently empty.

If I was pg, it would only be maximum of 10 days since conception so too early to do a pg test - but wondered if I should actually consider buying a test or not.

It was for me, along with the need to pee all the time, and then a few weeks afterwards, the need to sleep all day long.

Thanks Fuzzy - I do also need to pee a bit more often than normal.

You wouldn't believe that I had been through this before as all I can remember about the early days was the awful tiredness and constant nausea - but they didn't kick in until 5-6 weeks last time. Can't really remember how I felt before that.

Anyone else experience this?

yes! I was on holiday in butlins the 5 days before i got bfp-i could not stop eating, i ate more than dp! i am still very hungry now (16 weeks)

Good luck. 10dpo is early enough to test with a first response.

yes but I also find it a symptom of pmt, I also find weeing more a symptom of pmt, maybe im just werid. I agree dont think it to early for first response

I suppose one of the reasons I am not sure is that I had a very heavy bleed for 3 days last week which I assumed was my period (or 'withdrawal bleed') because I had come off the pill a few days before that so thinking it is now unlikely that I am pg.

Am a bit skint so don't want to waste money on pg tests if it is unlikely and I am also now concerned whether I should really be going home and drinking the wine that I put in the fridge this morning grin

Oh don't know what to do......

I always eat loads and wee loads the week before my period. I am TTC at the moment too, period due on Tuesday so currently eating and weeing for England!

speaking from bitter experience, I would try and wait until your period is actually late before you test.

good luck anyway!

it sounds to me like leaving the test then. if you have only that recently come off the pill its unlikely, it takes time to settle. have a small bit of wine.

Bueller Fri 26-Oct-07 15:53:27

yes, agree with scorpio1, have a nice glass of wine and try and put it out of your mind for a while! (vvvv difficult I know)

My main pregnancy symptoms before I knew I was pregnant were weeing 5 times a night (i never usually wee at night), and like 100 times through the day, very bad skin which I've never had and suddenly I was STARVING all the time. So possibly!
Mind you, the months leading up to this pregnancy, I had talked myself in to having symptoms each month i think. It happened to be the one month I hadn't felt sick when suddenly I was pregnant! I then got every single symptom ridiculously magnified.

You may find that you have suddenly gone off the wine. That's my sure-fire way of telling.

Clever old nature - can't believe that I managed a whole 9 months without boozing when I was pg with ds1 grin

I think you may be pregnant. I got exactly the same feeling 2 weeks after conception. I also consistently needed to pee. I'm in week 7 now and find I'm STARVING every 2-3 hours, constantly peeing still and extremely fatigued.

I feel so much better knowing it's not only me feeling like this

Considering this thread is 10 years old,I think the OP would be aware if they were pregnant or not.
