Is there such a thing as pregnancy munchies?

I swear I could eat 24/7 lately, not so much the whole pregnancy, but boy I'm starving the last week or so!

  • Yes there is it the point where I believe your craving and liking plus his come together. I did think for weeks in my pregnancy and ate lots of food but never reached the level of being satisfied. I thought it was my body way of trying to find some nutrient I was missing but after eating everything I figured I had it covered. Remember your body is working 24/7 to grow this baby and you have no break so you might need the calories to help this along.

  • I believe so! Mine kicked in 2nd trimester all pregnancies. I wasn't entirely hungry during my first trimester, or nothing sounded good, but once the second trimester kicked in I was raiding the fridge/cupboards on the hour it seemed.

  • I have been so hungry constantly or I'm not hungry, but could eat something just cause it looks yummy. But I can say that w/ my last baby I didn't want anything the last 2 weeks, my eyes were bigger than my tummy, or that baby would allow.
