  • Your baby is growing & helping you burn through some of that food. Take pregnancy as an opportunity to eat as often as you like... you're gonna gain weight no matter what, so enjoy it! :)

  • You might not be eating enough calories. Or being pregnant has increased your metabolism. You burn through food faster because of the baby growing inside of you. Think how much he/she is growing and how fast. That takes a lot of energy!

    Increase your calories, pay attention to your cravings, and try to have healthy snacks to munch on throughout the day.

  • That person you are growing inside of you needs a lot of nourishment and it takes a lot of energy! The baby will get what it needs and you will get what's left - my doctor said that a fetus is like a parasite! LOL! you need more calories to have the energy to grow that person and the nutrients both you and the baby need.

  • your baby is hungery no matter how far along you are. Eat, eat, and eat some more. If you're tired of eating every two hours, wait until you're peeing every 5 minutes. I though it was a myth. Boy was I surprised.
