    I got really hungry in week 12 when my morning sickness started to go away- 10 minutes after I finished eating something I would be starving! I think it varies from person to person.

    omg like five seconds after being sperminated!!! First trimester was the worst I was a monster, I would actually tell my boss "you have five minutes to let me eat before I turn you to stone, so you better hurry up with whatever you're doing if you know what's good for you!!!". it's started to get better now but it was really hard to manage for a while there!

    PS my doctor says that eating protein with every meal/snack will really help to curb your appitite, and as long as you know you have eaten a healthy, sufficient meal, it is not bad at all to not eat when you're hungry or even feel starving. She said the baby has a way of "making you feel like you're in africa and you haven't eaten in a week" which I thought was a really good way of describing it!

    It seems to come and go for me, same with cravings. Throughout my first trimester I'd crave something like mad and eat a lot of it for about a week (carrot juice, Taco Bell, salad), and then it would go away. I haven't been terribly hungry throughout my pregnancy, but yesterday morning I couldn't get enough to eat. I had a bowl of potatoes and eggs, and when I was done I thought "Huh, still hungry." So I ate a yogurt. I was still hungry after that, so I had a bowl of musli. Then I wasn't really hungry for the rest of the day! My appetite is just really inconsistent.

    Popped over from 3rd tri...for me it didnt start until my last month of pregnancy! I was eating healthy, and drinking water and then bam! Soon as i hit 9 months, it was cheesesteaks, cheeseburgers, cheese fries, and milkshakes :( Glad its almost over.

    I started with intense hunger in the 10 th week, and started tapering off after that.

    It's different for everyone xx it's only in the last 2 weeks that my appetite has increased. I had a bowl of cereal earlier and 15 minutes later had a bowl of ravioli.

    I've just had some cake and custard :blush:

    I just made a post on this, but with each pregnancy right at 5 months! (22 weeks), so watch out for a huge appetite increase in just a few days! Lol

    I've been constantly hungry since week 4! Even when my MS was at it's worst I still felt hungry. I'm actually really fed up of eating all the time now but I get a bit shaky if I don't eat for a while.

    For me I started at about 10 weeks, but I've always been the hungry side type even before pregnancy. Everyone starts at different times or never even starts. I wouldn't worry too much about it.
