HELP!!!! I'm starving and I can't get enough to eat! In the last few days, my body has done this wicked transition. I am hungry. All. The. Time. I'm ravenous in the mornings, by the time lunch rolls around, I feel paralyzed by hunger, and sometimes, even after a nutritious dinner, I go to bed hungry.
I have continued on with my original plan of small healthy meals through the day. I'm using everything I have learned on sparkpeople. Everything I have read about pregnancy is "don't pig out.." or "just have some crackers by your side..." Sorry but that just ain't cuttin it! I think my baby must be a future linebacker or something, because there just isn't enough food on this earth to keep my stomach from roaring! The hunger pangs are sometimes so intense, I double over!!! I don't want to gain a ton of weight in this pregnancy, and I FEEL like I'm eating way too much. Any suggestions? Should I take in more protein? Am I NORMAL!?
