I am nearly 11 weeks, and getting a bit concerned about how hungry I am all the time. I've only put on about 1 lb so far, but I still worry that all this eating will catch up with me eventually. I even feel hungry when I get up to go to the toilet in the night! I've discovered that drinking fizzy water makes me feel more full, and yesterday I decided that I had eaten enough and just felt hungry all afternoon.
I haven't had this problem with previous pregnancies, is anyone else this bad? Is it a good idea to let yourself feel hungry?
Eat! You're hungry for a reason. Chances are it will settle down in a few weeks, especially once the baby begins to take up a bit of room, so you're hardly going to put on 20 stone. Just make sure you're eating lots of veg and carbohydrates to fill you up, as well as plenty of cake
I have been constantly eating since I was about 5 weeks pg (now am 11weeks like you). In fact I am eating at the moment. I find that humous works a treat and you don't feel quite so bad about eating it all the time! I am just hoping it eases off a bit in the second trimester and I know from my first pg that my appetite went down in my final trimester. Just keep eating if you are hungry!
OK, you've all persuaded me Its just a bit worrying as I needlessly put on 2 stone first time (not much of this was pregnancy weight and I was overweight to start with), and it took me a year to lose it all. I promised myself I wouldn't do that again, but yet here I am eating all day. I dread to think what my colleagues think of me, I haven't told anyone I am pregnant yet.
I find eating little and often works best. Dont try and have breakfast, lunch and dinner but eat small, healthy snacks more or less constantly.
I cant face big meals so have more often have, a crumpet, then an apple, then a couple of biscuits, by this time it's nearly lunch time so will have slice of toast, then some cheese and crackers, then some more fruit, which should then take me up to dinner time. After which I might have a sandwich! I am 15weeks.
I tried to have a whole bacon sandwich and could only manage half. An hour later I'm starving!
