I am 33, 5'7" and started at around 123 lbs. I'm about 25 weeks into my pregnancy and have gained 31 lbs so far. I do eat healthy foods, but I also eat cookies and ice cream. I just can't eat veggies and fruit all day and I'm hungry all the time. My doctor warned me that I can't keep up the same or me and the baby could be an unhealthy weight. So I looked up the pregnancy weight gain calculator online and I'm almost at my entire desired weight gain. I don't even feel that big...and I still have 3 months to go!

Are you having the same issues with your weight gain?

Yes, Im only 22 weeks into my pregnancy, with a pre-pregnancy weight of 138, and now weigh 163, for a total gain of 25 lbs. THis is my first pregnancy too, and I am soooo hungry all the time. My Dr. hasn't given me the speech quite yet, bu he hinted around at my last appt to eat healthy and be sure to exercise. I've tried several times to eat healthy, but I always end up turning to the junk food, bc the healthy stuff just does NOT satisfy my appetite or cravings. You are NOT alone. I feel horrible, but I just can't stop these awful eating habits. It really depresses me. I feel like the only thing that helps me feel better is eating again. I think I have developed an eating disorder, (over eating). Ugh.
