Should I be this hungry at 4 weeks pregnant?


Hey, I'm 4 weeks pregnant and I'm hungry quite a lot now. I'm quite petite so I'm not normally one to eat a lot. But now I can't seem to stop eating. Although today I went off my sandwiches a bit, but some things I just want to eat a lot of! Is this just me being greedy? Or am I meant to be this hungry at this stage in pregnancy xx

I too have been starving for most of the time. It's like when I get a period and I just need so much more energy! For me the nauseous feeling from hormones makes me feel like Im hungry all the time. Our bodies and the little beans need fuel hey?! x

I have heard that you do not need to be eating anything extra til past around 14wks.

I am having a mid-morning snack to settle my tummy as it is churning during the day.

Just in case your sandwiches weren't hot, you should know that you are to stay away from cold deli meats as they can carry the bacteria listeria. Don't fret if you didn't know this as an "oops" is nothing to stress about. But I'm probably speaking ahead of turn and you cooked your meat anyway, sorry ahead of time if that's the case!

BTW I have been hungry for about two weeks now! Either I don't have much of an appetite, then I get starving suddenly and have to eat. I think it's normal...and I've already lost if you aren't supposed to eat or gain weight until after 14wks....whoops.

All my best luck and love.

I myself ate like it was going out of style until I became sick at five and a half weeks, and am now VERY grateful that I did! As long as you do your best to eat a balanced diet, I'd say if you're hungry, listen to your body!

Congratulations

it's normal ! At 4 weeks I would eat anything put in front on me.
Now I'm almost 7 weeks and Im so nauseous that I have very low appetite.

I'm starving all the time. Part of it I think is that I was dieting for the past 3 months and now I feel like I can give in a little and eat a bit more. I haven't gained weight yet though.
