    Can anyone else just not stop eating?

    I had eating disorders when I was younger and now I never weigh myself (I don't have scales in the house.) But I weighed me at my mum's when I was a month preg and my B.M.I. was 20.5. On the weight and height charts I'm on the line between okay and underweight.

    I was wondering if this might be the reason I'm eating so much? I haven't weighed me since then.

    It's not bothering me *too* much, I know I'm going to put weight on, I'm prepared for it and not really over the moon about it but I am happy to be pregnant and accept that it's all part of it.

    Does anyone else feel like this?

    Thanks :)
