23 weeks pregnant, haven't eaten in days!!

Or so it feels like. (Lol)

NOTHING fills me up! I wake up multiple times a night with unbelieveable hunger attacks. I can eat, then an hour later, I'm starving again. 

Did this happen with anyone else? I drink water throught the day, I don't have time to eat small meals throughout the day. I work full time. Just breakfast, lunch & dinner.

I usually snack on granola bars, fruit, and trail mix but that is NOT cutting it anymore. 

I also don't want to eat constantly, I'm trying to gain no more than the recommended 20-25lbs. No need to get ridiculously fat. 

What are some snacks I can buy that will fill me up??

Try eating nutrient dense foods. 

Don't worry about your weight. You body is telling you you need more.

Oh, man. When I was 23 weeks with my oldest I really DID go for about 3 days with hardly any food. It was horrible. :(

I was to ill to eat and would cry in front of the pantry I was so hungry. I ate many a meals right next to the toilet for 36 weeks.

Maybe chew gum or suck on a mint it hard candy.

When I was pregnant with my first. My husband still talks about the day I ate an entire medium pizza, a large salad, a 12 inch sub, a bag of chips, 10 hot wings, and 3 cookies. For dinner.
