So I am about 6 or so weeks and the hunger is insane! My family is Hispanic and all they do is cook! So I havnt been able to eat all day cause I've been so nautious for the past week, but today me & hubby had a little quick one around 6 or 7 & after that I just got so hungry! So we ate. I ate what is called a torta it was a pretty good size I ate it all & the more I ate the more I got hungry! I was just like oh my, so I finished & then I was okay for about 30 mins and just got hungry again like no other & now I am freaking starving but I don't really like eating this late ^_^

I drink a bottle or 2 of water if im constantly hungry. It helps. Especially at night time.

 My hunger has been crazy too!  I'll be 6w tomorrow.  I don't get sick with pregnancy but this is the first time I remember being so starving.  I need to up my protein to see if that will help.  One day last week, we had dinner around 7 and then by 9, I had a snack of some sort but by 11, I was so hungry, I made a ham sandwich!  It's crazy!!!

this is my first pregnancy and it's already miserable. I have morning sickness bad! Sometimes I have it all day & sucks terribly. & yeah I get hungry so fast! Like I'll eat a meal & maybe 30mins. Later I'll be hungry again. It's crazy

Drinking a full bottle or glass of water before eating helps!

does it help keep you full longer?

Yep. Cold water before eating helps reduce the amount of hunger you feel as well as helps your food digest better.

With me between 4-8 weeks my hunger was out of control. I HAD to eat ever 4 hours to the minute and eat small snacks in between. I also drank alot of water because you should not gain slot of weight too fast. 12-16 weeks my hunger subsided, didn't HAVE to eat every 4 hours just ate when I was hungry and snacked more on fruit

It is pretty ridiculous how hungry you can feel. I used to get kind of panicked when it hit all the sudden and there wasn't any food within 5 feet. Lol
This is also our first. I've tried to explain it to my SO and he just doesn't get it. If I don't eat right now, I'm going to puke. We were driving somewhere and I told him I was hungry. He told me to wait until we got home (about a 30 min drive). 5 minutes later I was throwing up in his truck and it freaked him out. He asked me what that was all about and I told him that I was hungry!

I never had any nausea this pregnancy. I was just starving.. I ate non stop the first 2 months.. funny thing was I only gained about 2-3 lbs in that time

I can easily go all day without thinking of food if i'm not careful. It isn't til evening/night that hunger sets in and I want to constantly eat.
