    I always seem hungry, like im not eating enough...

    I just wanted to get a rough idea of how much the average pregnant third trimester lady eats on a daily basis?

    Thanks :flower:

    The second I start eating I dont stop for rest of the day. Anything and everything. Even with all sandwiches small meals and snacks ... Both healthy and junk food ... I can eat my full dinner in evening and still keep going. Force myself to stop after 9 tho so I dont get woken in night by heartburn. I'm surprised i'm not the size of a house.

    I've only been like this the past week or so though, basically since i came into the third trimester, im guessing its because shes having a growth spurt or something...

    Breakfast: A bowl of cereal, usually frosted flakes. after i finish the first bowl there's still a little milk left so i pour in a bit more cereal and eat it.

    Lunch: Usually a sandwich and some chips or yogurt

    Dinner: Whatever we make for dinner... Tonight i think i'm making pizza. I'll probably have two or three slices.

    usually i eat some sort of snack before going to bed. Lately i've been loving the oreos and milk, but often i have a cup of noodles or some top ramens.

    But i also snack on small things throughout the day, usually candy..... I'm a teacher and the bowl of candy on my desk is too tempting and i find myself eating out of it quite often!

    Breakfast - 2 x weetabix
    Snack - banana or toasted teacake or fruit scone
    Lunch - Ham salad sandwich and a pear
    Snack - Low fat crisps
    Dinner - Meat or fish with pots and veg / chicken curry with brown rice / fresh pasta and sauce etc with yoghurt for pudding
    Supper - Biscuit

    I've put on v little weight but think it's probably cos I'm eating a lot less cake and rubbish than pre-preg as I have gone right off it and really fancy fresh fruit and veg a lot more x

    Im hoping my appetite calms down, and hopefully shes just having a growth spurt because i dont want to gain too much weight and then have to worry about losing it afterwards, when i'd rather just be spending time with my baby.

    Yeah I was going to suggest this... every couple of weeks I get RAVENOUS for a few days and I'm positive it's because he's having a growth spurt. There are definitely periods where I seem to be crazy hungry all the time. I think you're eating a pretty normal amount :]


    The past few days I've been eating:

    Breakfast - Shreddies or Weetabix, a glass of fruit juice and a banana
    Snack - toast and cashew butter
    Lunch - toasted bagel with Philadelphia, or an avocado and feta salad
    Snack - yoghurt
    Dinner - varies... today was a morrocan chickpea casserole with rice
    Snack before bed - more cereal or more toast!

    I wouldn't worry, I'm eating a lot at the moment too! Today I had cereal and milk for breakfast, cheese salad sandwich, crisps, yoghurt and fruit for lunch, dinner was a large portion of pasta bake with garlic bread and 5 choccie biscuits for afters.

    Would have been more if we have more goodies in the house! I could eat some choccie now x
