Post subject: Is it normal to feel soooooo hungry
Hi. Am just 8 weeks pregnant and am feeling sick pretty much all day every day. I am also starving hungry, ALL the time. I literally finished my lunch today and had to go out for more food. If I am not eating I am feeling sick. Luckily, I haven't put any weight on so far but I am worried I'll end up the size of a house if I keep going!
Am trying to keep going with some exercise and am eating as much fruit as I can manage but it doesn't stop me wanting chocolate/sweets/anything, all the time!
Anyone else feeling like this?

am 13 weeks and i have to eat more than normal for sure - otherwise i start to feel sick - i have breaky mid morning snack lunch mid afty snack dinner and snack - but to be honest i feel sick most evenings so dont manage much unless its put under my nose
but yes i wake up starving and go to bed starving - seems to be normal

Me too its desperate - this is my third successful (so far) pregnancy and I have never had 'morning' sickness before but half the time I cant tell if I feel sick or I am starving...I have put on 9 pounds and I am only about 10 weeks, havent told anyone at work about baby just yet but they are beginning to comment on the sheer amount of food I am eating its like I graze all day - graze being the operative word will end up the size of a cow if I am not careful lol

I have to say ive been the total opposite - i struggle to eat a plate of food!! For the first 5 months i was sick every day, so barely ate a thing, then i got food poisoning from a works meal at a hotel (granted i didnt eat much of it, but ate enough to get ill), and was in hospital on a drip for 3 days, then since then, ive only been able to eat half of a normal portion - i do find i get peckish during the day though and always carry biscuits and snacks in my bag to take the edge off, but my stomach gets so full so quickly, an the heartburn is hell!! Iwonder if my stomach will go back to its normal size when baby is born so that I can eat a big juicy steak!!!!?!!
