  • Yep! Eat when you're hungry. I'm 34 weeks now, and I have to do that because there is not enough room for me to eat a full meal! LOL! She is taking up all the room!

  • absolutely! eat when you're hungry! it's good that you are eating throughout the day! it's good for the growing baby and for you!

  • Small snacks throughout the day are good. It really depends on what you are eating. The baby will take what it needs regardless of what you eat. Just be careful because if you over eat or eat foods high in fat calories, that will remain on your body.

  • at least you're eating...I will have something for breakfast and not want to eat or force myself to eat at about 3:30-4:00 p.m. and then I eat no dinner. I am just not hungry...I am 27 weeks pregnant and barely at my pre-pregnancy weight...I lost about 7 pounds the first 4 months, no morning sickness just not eating...not hungry...since my 16 weeks checkup I've gained 5 pounds which is still -2 pounds my doc says everything is ok with the baby. I am not a thin girl at all, just my body is reacting different with this baby (boy, this will be my 3rd boy). I have my days though, eat when you're hungry, just try not to over do it with the snacks like I do when I get cravings! Have fun enjoy it!

  • eat eat eat! i eat every 2 hours.. and i'm not even prego...
    but that's because i have a really fast metabolism so i'm always hungry. =\

    if i miss an actual meal like lunch or dinner.. i'll feel like i'm starving.. and start to feel light headed.

    i'm what some people call.. a "hard gainer".
