22w, 4 days here and I'm starting to have a different issue with food other than just feeling like I have to pay attention to how much I'm having in order to prevent serious pain & belly ache afterwards.

Julie, I hate to hear that you are having problems eating. I too have issues but I have had them the whole time I've been pregnant thus the reason I've only put on 1 pound so far. I'm bummed to because I had big plans to eat on Thursday. Lol. I hope we both get some relief soon!!!

Bummer you're getting nauseous! When I was pregnant with my first son, especially as I got further along, my stomach had absolutely no room. I could literally eat like 3 bites of a delicous meal and I was so full, however I was hungry again 20 or 30 minutes later. So I basically ate all the time, just very small amounts! Maybe that is what you need to do to avoid your nauseous, just graze continuously, if possible. I ate a lot of fruit, particularly apples and the canned tropical fruit, which I think helped me from feeling so nauseous.

I have... the exact opposite problem. I honestly feel like I never get full. I'll eat a big meal and want food again 90 minutes later. It's like my tummy has a hole in the bottom and all the food just falls back out! I wake up with an upset tummy occasionally in the mornings and sometimes after I eat but that's about it. I find myself eating way more than I should at meals, and 2-3 snacks in between. I'm gaining like 2-3 pounds a week instead of one. Eek.

I'm trying to at least eat as healthy as I can so that my bottomless pit doesn't turn into the bottomless grand canyon =P. I'm just breaking around my pre pg weight so I'm not freaking out about weight yet. I mean I'm enjoying getting to eat lots of food LOL. I kwym and try not to complain too much either, too thankful! Sometimes our hormones just cloud our vision of what's going on ;).

Oh.. I'd love to eat enough for all three of us! I've been counting the days to thanksgiving forever!
