2nd Trimester

I’m. So. HUNGRY!!

I will be 14 weeks on Tuesday. This is baby #2 for me. I have been SO hungry since week 5. I wasn’t able to eat much for weeks but at week 12 food was finally normal to me again and i could eat whatever i wanted. I just cannot get full. Like ever. I’m trying to drink water to help fill me up but nothing seems to be doing the trick. I am not trying to deprive myself so I’ll eat when I’m hungry but nervous to gain a ton of weight. Anyone else like this?!

Re: I’m. So. HUNGRY!!

  • I’ve been like this on and off! Some days I have just an insatiable appetite, like nothing makes me feel full. Thankfully since entering second trimester I haven’t been craving so much, so I can at least fill up on healthier snacks haha.

    Same here, I’m 26 weeks now and need food constantly, but trying to balance my diet and go for healthy snacks when possible - not always easy bc I really enjoy my chocolate lol. Smoothies have been my go to because they’re filling with lots of nutrients;)

    Hi ladies! Thanks for your responses. I am 17 weeks now and thankfully the insatiable hunger has subsided for the most part! Phew! 😅
  • @kh7487 I had an intense/distracting level of hunger from 5-11ish weeks. Now, it has mostly subsided and I just eat the usual sustaining snacks throughout the day. It's definitely not as intense as it was in the very beginning.

    Good luck with you!  
  • For the first 4.5 months I wasn't eating very much because I was so nauseous and throwing up a lot, but since that subsided, for the last 2 weeks or so I am also constantly hungry! Like to the point of feeling super weak and kind of sick. Every time I eat, I still feel hungry after! I'm so afraid that I'm going to gain a bunch of weight because my BMI is already too high to start. So you are definitely not alone!

    Welp ladies I’m back at 22 weeks with the insatiable hunger 😂 I’m actually ok during the day but at night time… i can’t get full. Like another poster said it makes me feel almost sick if i don’t eat. I’ve gained 20 lbs so far this pregnancy. Wonder how much I’ll gain overall lol i don’t care as long as me and baby are healthy 🙂 butttt would love to just eat a meal and feel full!
  • I've had a couple bouts of insatiable hunger too!  First at about 5 weeks, then again around 17.  I think my problem was reaching for cravings (chips and chocolate, lol) and forgetting to eat enough protein.  That's helped a lot.  But I still eat more than almost anyone I know, haha!  I trust it'll all work out!
