  • I don't think you are crazy....I've found that certain foods I eat don't fill me up either. I ate lasagna the other day and after eating a whole lot of it, 5 min later my stomach was growling! 36wks pregnant here! I'm in the same boat!

  • It can be hon! Hormones are malicious little buggers! Eat 6 small meals a day then you can eat about every 2-3 hours and you wont be so miserable. I gained 86lbs with my first because I felt that way so I ate and ate and ate but never once felt even satisfied. Don't get to that'll hate yourself later for it.

  • I was the same way with my first pregnancy. I ate all day, and gained way too much weight. With this pregnancy I eat a meal, and even tho im not full I stop and wait till the next meal.

  • I agree, try to eat small meals during the day, and not eat a lot of large meals. I am sure that it is just hormones that are making you get that way. I remember being the same way, that nothing I would eat would fill me up. Or I would be full for a little bit, and then I would be hungry again. But once I knew I ate a good meal, and was still hungry, I would eat healthy snacks, like applesauce, baby carrots, etc.

  • I thought I may drown from all the water I was drinking! I can't eat though, lost over 30lbs! Which for me, is ok, but my dr's aren't happy! I had about 50lbs to lose from my first two! So I am ok with it!
