Any other mommys starving?

I gained 86lbs with my first pregnancy so I am being really cautious of what and how much I eat with this one. I eat like I NORMALLY would and have to cut myself off so I dont gain 86lbs again. I am always hungry and getting so sick of it. I know I have eaten enough....I just never get full. Its working this time though. I am 32 weeks and have only gained 22lbs which is more than I planned on BUT way better than where I was at this point in my pregnancy with my first at a weight gain of almost 70lbs by 32weeks. Its frustrating. Any other mommies having to do the same?

  • I know what you mean! I gainned 65 lbs with my first baby and try to eat a lot less with the second but I ended up gaining the same thing :(
    YES I did feel hungry a lot! but i tried drinking water first to see if I would feel full before I ate someone thing else.
    You are doing great!! 22 lbs is perfect.

  • I gained 16 pounds total with my first pregnancy. I was so sick, and, although I ate, I just didn't gain. I never really had an appetite. Never had a single craving.

    I'm about 6 weeks pregnant now, and I might just eat us out of house & home. I am STARVING!!! You're so not alone.

  • I never had that problem especially with my last three, I was so sick that food was the last thing on my mind. By the time the baby was born I was in the negatives, I was smaller then when I started, not a "bad" thing, except after the baby was born I gained it all back cause I was just starving!
