Yes me... but I'm not pregnant :D

Seriously, in the first trimester it's a case of 'anything goes'. Some women can't face food and some find that the only way they feel ok is to eat regularly. Just use your common sense though... eating a lot of the wrong things isn't going to be great but having an appetite at this stage is good.

I say eat whilst you can in case the dreaded morning sickness kicks in!

not sure what your 'normal' eating habits are, but you might find that adding more slow releasing energy foods into your diet will help, e.g. porridge for brekkie!

Yeah - I get hungry every 2 hours or so - and its like the bottom has fallen out of my stomach.

I mean absolutely STARVING ...

So now I eat smaller meals but more regularly ..like I don't eat the banana for lunch - I keep it and have it in the afternoon instead

I'm like that at the mo -- but may just be because I got chocs for xmas and am at home alot - not doing as much exercise since started on ivf - just a walk a day - so am worried about putting loads of weight on which isn't needed .



DH doesn't help by saying well you need to put on wieght - I don't yet 5'3 and 9st 7lbs. think I'm fine as I am !

KD - I'm 5'2'' and started out weighing just over 10 stone and a size 12, I eat when I need to eat and I've not gone up any sizes, obviously my weight has gone up but thats just baby! Like Jen says - eat before the morning sickness kicks in, because I literally couldn't eat for 5 weeks!!!

I was feeling hungry all the time and I have banned all sweets and crisps now - just not allowed.
I am also doing 30mins exercise a day. I'm overweight so I can't afford to put on a ton of weight.
So I was hoping that if I eat healthy and cut out the junk that I won't pile anymore on.

Hi all - I am 12 weeks tomorrow and have been starving throughout this whole first trimester and have eaten loads (and gained a little weight). I find if I am not eating then I get queasy. The queasiness has disappeared but the hunger hasn't. Does this get any better or for the next six months will I also be starving and struggling to not reach for yet another packet of crisps?!

It's a toughy mmmmmm

I'd 'like' to tell you to eat what you can while you can but as you're getting to the end of the first trimester and sickness isn't a problem then I'm afraid you are going to have to be a bit careful. Sorry.

What I can say with some conviction is that the kinds of things you're currently eating 'could' be the kinds of foods that make you feel hungry again quite soon after eating them. Things like bread, potatoes, cakes, crisps, pastries, pasties etc.... they ALL make you feel hungry quite soon after having eaten them and then, to add insult to injury, they make you crave more of the same.

Higher protein foods will help you feel fuller for longer and although you will still crave the wicked sugary/fatty/carby food for several days, after that your cravings should subside enough for you not to feel like you want to lie down in the bread and cake aisle and eat your way to the till :snigger:

It's no fun when you've had your baby, your belly's the same size just saggy, you have a baby to look after and you're frightened of stepping on the scales. As harsh as it is to have to watch your weight while you're pregnant it's sadly necessary. Whoever invented the saying 'eating for two' needs shooting :rolleyes:

Ha, I'd forgotten about this thread. The hunger hasn't stopped for me!!! But the crisps and chocolate have been replaced by fruit, I just can't get enough of it. I was actually quite pleased with myself until someone reminded me that fruit can cause tooth decay!

Hi all,

Thanks for the comments. Must admit I was hopeful that this powerful, ever present hunger would ease slightly after the first trimester. Damn. Oh well, I have had an apple and a banana in the space of five minutes, hopefully that will sustain me for a little while.

I have been lucky but day one I got a stern talking to from my midwife who told me in terms of additional calories I should only be eating half a sandwich and a glass of milk extra per day. That kinda put things into perspective a bit really for me. I also take evening primrose oil to keep the hormones balanced.
Another reason not to go over board is the whole pelvic floor issue, the more weight we gain the more stress on the pelvic floor muscles etc......do I need to say anymore!!!!!
Good luck,
