funny - i'm new here and was just about to post a thread on this exact same problem!
I'm 8 weeks today but from the very start i have been eating a lot more than usual. In the mornings especially, i get so hungry that if i don't eat i feel ill. I;m worried about how much weight i'll put on because already i have gained quite a bit (haven't weighed myself, but can feel it in my clothes). AND someone who hasn't seen me since October said quite bluntly today, "Why have you got so fat?". Thanks. i needed that like a hole in the head!
So i'm feeling a bit bleak: i don't want to starve but i don't want to be enormous either. On the other hand, i also feel like if there's one time in my life where i can just eat without worrying, this is it, and i'll deal with the excess weight later. (this is my first pregnancy).

I have put a whole stone on since my bfp! I eat like a horse as it's the only way to stop feeling sick.
The way I look at it is, there are so many other things to worry about, so kick back, grab those crisps, choc bars etc and enjoy every minute of this pregnancy!
We can all deal with the excess flab later when we have our little bundles in our arms.

While I agree with Taralyn and Mummytofour that this is the time that we don't have to worry about these things so much, it's also not a good time to start being unhealthy. For some of us it's more detrimental than other times. I am overweight to begin with and gaining an excessive amount of weight can lead to complications. I was 193lbs when I found out I was pregnant at 4wks. I am now 11wks and 194lbs and I'm super proud I have only gained a pound. My goal is to not go over 200lbs during this pregnancy although it seems a bit unattainable.

Wow Ladies, it makes me feel much better that I am not the only one struggling and sufferring from an extreme increase in hunger.

Phew ...

Somehow I would still like to keep it a bit more in grips, but I am going to my GP tomorrow and we will see what she says as I know she also struggled in her pregancy (we talked about it). If she has any useful advice, I will certainly pass it on

... now off to warm up my Chinese food.

Smile
