Thats me!

I gained 60lbs with DD so Im trying so hard to keep it in check this time.

I try just to eat normal sized meals, like what Id eat before I was pregnant but then Im starving an hr later.

I had a big dinner less than 2.5 hrs ago and a piece of banana bread after & I can feel my stomach getting ready to growl! There is no way I should be hungry. I really dont even want to eat anything.

Thats also how I know when Im pregnant. Usually Im starving @ bedtime or when I get up in am, which Im not usually.

I have to buy fruit & celery to eat as snacks.

I'm having the opposite "problem," which gives me a little hope that maybe this little baby is here to stay. When I was pregnant with my DS, my two biggest symptoms were fatigue and loss of appetite. I have both already! I have only eaten one meal today and nothing sounds good. My stomach is rumbling but I can't think of anything I would like to eat!

Mmm cake! Actually I would like some BBQ right now or a steak :) Yes, it is 8am ;)
Ya Im running to the store to buy fruit & veggies. I would say Id start going for a walk but its 20 degrees or something outside. Brrrr

Ok, I just have to edit to say I had an egg & cheese sandwich & its like I just ate nothing! Im in trouble!

I've been starving the past two weeks. Veggies don't cut it either. I'm trying to stick with healthy stuff. I have never, ever been hungry like this before! I'm kind of almost hoping that I do get some morning sickness, maybe it'll help keep me from stuffing my face. All I hear at home is "Go ahead, you're eating for two!" so that's not helpful!

t is usually how i am at this point, so i am surprised that i am NOT starving all the time!! Maybe it is because i am being proactive, lol, and eating my big protein breakfast first thing, i never get the chance.

i am sure it will happen for me though, lol!!

Protein and fiber keeps you full longer.
