My appetite for the first month was crappy, all I wanted was sugar! Now at one month I find my self STARVING and shaking if I dont eat every few hours. And I'm talking pretty big portions.. I know when to stop if I feel full, but it's like my tummy is a bottomless pit!
So how is your appetite? Normal? Barely there? Or big??

I eat like a freaking cow, its ridiculous! Im petite ao my hubs weighs 80lbs more than me n im eating as much as he is.

I eat very healrhy, lots produce then I find myself STARVING and eat junk. The other day for dinner had garlic pasta w veggies, chicken and then green salad. 90 mins later I send hubs out n I ate 10 nuggets, some fries and 2 bowls of ice cream with almonds and chocolate!! I felt so gross! But I just couldnt stop

I am constantly eating....probably 2500-3000 calories a day. I eat healthy, but get the munchies like crazy before bed.

I'm always hungry... the first 2 months though I would be raiding the kitchen when I'd get up in the night and stuff my face... oatmeal cookies, popcorn, granola bars (I tried to keep "healthy" snacks for midnight hunger rampages... but there were times when I'd be hitting up a bag of chips or some leftover Christmas candy too!)

The first couple months I'm crazy starving, and thirsty. You need double the extra calories during breastfeeding that you needed during pregnancy (500 extra for breastfeeding, 250 during pregnancy). Then I eat pretty normally.

I usually eat not stop for about 2 hours mid-day...all healthy stuff. But I haven't been eating breakfast cause the little dude wakes up starving too! He is only (almost) 2 weeks old though.
