  • Well Before I was pregnant and even now I had such a GOOD appetite!! But yeah when I was pregnant with my baby girl OH MY GOSH I would get super full so quick! And If I even stuffed my self or over ate a lil boy would I have Indegestion & just feel miserable !!! I had to sit up to go to sleep, it was horrible! I then just ate 6 SMALL meals a day!

  • I have days where I can't stop eating and I think I'm going to eat us out of house and home and then days when I don't want to eat so I have to force myself. I have yet to gain a pound and I'm almost 20 weeks. So to me, 12.4 pounds sounds great.

  • I was eating a lot when iwas first pregnant, from about 4-14 weeks, but after that my apetite has slowed down a lot, like PP said, i have just been eating small meals throughout the day. I had a ultrasound on saturday, and my babygirl was perfect weight and just fine! i think everyone is just different
