When did your appetite start to increase?


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?

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!

i agree i think the wii fit is a brill idea. i used to go to the gym 2 times a week before i got preg n that was 4 pound a time. if only i kept it i would save so much money when baby is here.

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!

My appetite increased when I hit second tri. I couldn't eat a lot in first tri as I went off alot of food. I was eating because I had to and not because I wanted to.

Now I just eat what im craving and when! xx
