Normally im not much of a daytime eater, perhaps some toast at lunchtime, although ive been trying to eat more since becoming pregnant. The last week or so ive noticed myself feeling hungry more often. I tend to be hungry when i wake up, and really ready for food by the time lunch arrives! I dont really eat alot more, just actually feel hungry as a pose to making myself eat for bubs!
Just wondered when other peoples appetite increased, and if i should expect it to increase any more? People tend to say you dont need to eat for 2 untill the third tri, is this true?
well before i was preg i never ate breakfast just dinner n tea. in the first tri i went off food altogether had to force myself to eat. then it started slowly comning back and since about 20wks i have to have breakfast as i wake up starving then a snack then dinner then another snack then tea then supper lol i have put on a bit of weight these last 3 weeks
In pregnancy, you only need extra calories for the last three months and then only about 200 extra a day. So that is an apple and some yoghurt, or a couple of slices of toast with peanut butter.
Personally my appetite is about the same now at 25 weeks as before I think, although back up from where it was in the 1st trimester! But I am having to eat more regularly otherwise I get shaky. Although some days I am ravenous!
If you are not eating much then I guess it is about making it about what you eat rather than how much. I'm trying to do that - cut out the 'empty' stuff and swap it for more useful things.
Yep, and i have so many good intentions for my wii fit for after bubs is born. I have lots of fitness games which im looking forwards to trying. Much like the others i have, i will do the fun bits and leave the rest, lol!
My son loves consoles, but he is only allowed on the ps3 at the weekend. I tell him he can go on the wii any time he likes as long as it is a game like wii fit, or something else which gets him moving! Its great when its rainy and miserable outside as he is still getting some excersize in and it doesnt cost a penny!
Mine increased from about 5 weeks!!
I'm a big eater though
I found that in 3rd tri I was hungry but stomach was so squished I could barely fit anything in it, I was never able to finish a meal, and I'd be hungry again half an hour later!
