HUNGRY! I feel like im starving all the time, i am always in the kitchen eating something it seems like, is that normal to be feeling hungry all the time or is that a sign that im not eating enough to begin with?

Completely normal! Most bf mamas feel like this (I don't, just get incredibly thirsty)

You are burning around an extra 500 calories a day, so you do need the extra grub!

 Yup, it's normal. Try to pick healthy snacks or otherwise you'll gain a bunch like I did, lol.  I had lost all the pregnancy weight and then gained it all back again. =(

This is normal. Breastfeeding requires an extra 500 calories a day.
