All I want to do is eat, not because I am hungry because I am not hungry lol. All I have the urge to do is eat, eat, eat, and eat. I have eaten a good sized dinner, then a few minutes later I got up and got pudding, then more pudding, then 2 popsicles, then cheese, and now celery. I am full, but I can't quit eating. I would really love cheez its right now. :/ Is this healthy to just eat because I want to?? Should I stop or should I just eat. I mean I probably should eat a little healthier then pudding and stuff, but I do eat nutritious meals for dinner, and during the day. But it's like at night all I want to do is eat!!! Is this bad? What do I do, I can't pass my urge it's like my stomach has so much room, but I don't even feel hungry....maybe this is another reason why I am packing on the pounds :/ I know I am pregnant but derrrrnnnn lol!!!!

No it's not healthy your baby will only eat 300 calories so all this extra food is FAT for you not baby. It will be harder for you to lose weight. Just try to cut down a little more each day. Find out what someone your weight needs in calories a day and add 300 calories. Try to stick to that range.

In the beginning I wasn't eating hardly at all, and therefore my OB was little concerned that I wasn't gaining enough weight, and then once I started eating more I started gaining weight like I should. I am 8 and 1/2 months and I have gained 30 pounds at most. I just can't pass the stupid urge to want to eat. And the weight I am not to worried about because I plan to breastfeed, and do plenty of exercise so I shouldn't have a problem shedding it. I just hate this :/ I want this pregnancy to be over so I don't want to eat like this anymore.

Ohh I didn't take it as offensive. I took it as advice :). I just want it to hurry I am tired of being a pig, and my body and tounge keep on telling me go and eat this, and it will be something else. Like right now, I am not even hungry but I would kill for some pancakes and cheez its lol. I just don't wanna be a piggy anymore *sigh* lol.

I did the same thing when I was pregnant with my son. I ended up gaining over 50 lbs and it took longer that time to get the weight off then it did with my other two. I also really believe if you are eating extra for no reason that it makes your baby gain weight. My son ended up being 9lbs and my other two kids were 6lbs. I am almost 7 months pregnant now and I have gained almost 30 lbs and the Dr. has evern said that's to much. But at the same time I am not eating when I am not hungry and I do eat healthy. So it has really been bothering me . I hope it is just water weight. I have talked to a lot of friends and that seems to be very common.

Some nights i eat like that. Like i am so close to full so i eat something else but it never completly fills me. Then some days/nights i only feel the urge to eat like once or twice a day. I try to even it all out but sometimes i have to give in because i feel like im starving. It sucks... I ate fairly healthy with my 1st & didnt really ever over eat or eat all the time because i didnt keep tons of food around all the time & i gained over 70lbs with my daughter. Doctor said i had a lot of extra fluid. This time around i am just about halfway thru & gained maybe 10 lbs. I loose a few then gain a few back. It usually ends up equaling 10lbs at most. So i am hoping i don't have all the extra water weight this time around & will only gain the right amount of weight.

I honestly hardly gained a thing until the end of November I was like 124 and when I went back for my next appointment I put on 10 pounds. I wasn't cooking and would only eat when I felt sick *shame on me* I just was depressed and couldn't stand the thought of eating, and then something changed in December and I was really happy and that's when I started really gaining my weight. I know I should watch what I eat. But I only weight140 right now which is more then I have ever weighed but the doctor seems happy that I am gaining but at the same time they don't want me gaining 10 pounds in a month. But the thing about it is, this urge just started too :/ So all my weight that was being gained was just because I was actually eating right, now I will probably gain even a few more extra pounds because I am eating to the urge. I am hoping I will shed it right off. My mom had no problems she's always been little, and I have her petite figure. I haven't gained weight in anything but my belly. Like my face and legs and everywhere else is the same size as before I was pregnant, B/D mom says pregnancy does me good lol.

I have days I eat like that too, I'll eat a huge dinner and be full for about 30 mintues then I always want something sweet. I've always had a horrible sweet tooth! And peanut butter cookies have been on my mind like crazy lately. You could be confusing hunger with being thirsty though, make sure your drinking tons of water a day, it will really help with not wanting to constently eat.

I don't think so. I eat and drink plenty. Oh lord my sweet tooth is terrible. I never have no sweets in my house, like ever there is always something sweet in my kitchen unless I can't get to the grocery store. I have a feeling my little boy will love that. I just always make sure I keep it in the house because I can't live without sweets! I just I dunno I just keep getting the urge and it won't go away :/

I've always had a sweet tooth. Remember eating a full bag of valentines day kit kats when I was pregnant with my daughter, plus valentines gummies! I feel like I eat a lot more than usual but I think it's cause I eat smaller meals more frequently. I can't eat a huge meal anymore without getting sick or feeling extremely full.

I've never had a zero bar, what is it? I love almond joys! I just ate dinner about 20mins ago now I could use a candy bar hahaha. I've also been wanting a huge bowl of different fruit... Grapes, pineapple, strawberries, bananas. Mmm! Sounds so good... Or even strawberry shortcake. Lol!!
