eating?

anyone else still have "pregnancy" cravings or feel like they are still eating for two after they had their baby?? I still feel like I am pregnant because i would always have this hungry feeling.. that was different than the reg hungry feeling... and i still have it.. and i still crave certain things...

  • I did until I realized that I wasn't really hungry. Try drinking water when you feel the urge.

    I also still give into my cravings otherwise I over-indulge when I finally let myself eat them.

  • Usually cravings mean you are missing something in your diet. Try eating a moderate amount of what you crave.

  • i was like that the first month after my ds was born. i had a hard long pregnancy tho and i lost a lot of blood. so my body was still trying to recover. i agree w/ pp that drinking water is good to help feel full and u may be missing something imp in ur diet

  • I felt STARVING for months after I had my baby. Breastfeeding burns A LOT of calories and you have to eat more to make up for what the milk takes from you.
