Increased hunger, baby dropped?


Hey all! Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this. I am only around 36 weeks, but am suddenly hungry ALL THE TIME. Well, not all the time, but I feel like I could eat every two hours or so, which for me, is a lot. (And sometimes every hour.) This has only happened over the last week, and I was wondering if it was a sign the baby had dropped? Or perhaps just that baby is growing and needs more fuel. I readily eat, but just make sure my choices are (mostly) super healthy so I don't feel mentally and physically crappy about the decision. But still...what's up? Any thoughts? This is my 4th babe, so you'd think I'd know, but I really don't recall feeling this hungry near the end before...

I've been absolutely starving on and off over the past week! Some days I cannot stop eating, others I feel full a lot! I'm just going with it.. I guess it's your body's way of doing things so am just eating if I'm hungry and not if I'm not.. I figured it was baby getting themselves in certain positions which allowed more or less of your stomach to be free!

Yes, that would definitely make sense!
