All day, every day. Food is the only thing on my mind anymore. I always knew pregnant women ate more but omg! I never thought that I'd inhale an entire meal and be ready for another one. It's like I can't eat fast enough. I try to eat filling things so I won't get hungry again but it just doesn't work. I haven't gained much weight since my spurt a month or two ago so I guess I've just taken it as a green flag to eat like 20 meals a day (not literally but pretty darn close lol) how did you guys deal with constant hunger? My poor SO can't keep up. :)

I barely eat. I am always full after one or two bites or not even hungry. I have to force myself to eat something light like a cucumber or some grapes. Not all pregnant women eat more.

Blah you sound like me. I just inhaled some leftover spaghetti and am now devouring some cookies. I forgot how much my appetite increases as I progress in pregnancy. I think my husband may just put a feed bag on my face.

It really depends.. Lol this is my second pregnancy, and my first pregnancy I ate sooo much, It got outta hand and I gained like 25lbs by 20 weeks. Unfortunately, that baby is now an angel.. 
But this pregnancy I'm so tiny, and ive only gained maybe 10 ish pounds and i'm just about 20 weeks. If i do get cravings, or hungry I try to eat healthy or control the portions. Also,cutting out caffeine and soda is good, haha.. if you mainly drink water like me, that should help.

Everyone is different. Just make sure you are eating healthy foods that arent all salt and sugar.

You're still fairly early if you're due in October. Early on for me I barely ate I just wasn't feeling the sight of food or even hearing about it. Maybe your appetite will increase later on. Grapes however are a great snack. They fill you up (well they're supposed to) and they're good for you.

I'm still really early in my pregnancy and i've been haveing this empty feeling in my stomach even after I just ate. Sometimes it even still growls lol!
I eat my regular meals and a few snacks but if I feel like I need to eat more than that I just eat a huge bowl of salad. I am overweight to begin with this time(this is my second pregnancy) so I don't need the extra calories says my doctor lol

Yeah I was the same way early on. I hardly ate anything. Then in my second trimester it leveled out, and now it just never stops. I honestly feel annoyed with eating :( but I just can't stop lol.

Up until about 20 weeks I really had no appetite, but now I definitely eat up a storm!! Hard to believe at almost 27 weeks I have only gained 5 pounds. I eat all of the time.

That's exactly how it happened with me. Sometimes I feel like a garbage disposal and I feel disgusted but I feel like I always need to eat. I haven't gained too much weight and I'm healthy but damn I eat like food is goin outta style!

By 26 weeks I gained over 30 lol :) but I've stopped since then. Some people just don't gain as much. It's weird.

I've been the same this pregnancy. I'm now 25 weeks and still have to force myself to eat.

With my first pregnancy though... I ate like a pig and gained 3.5stone! lol

Okay so dumb question but what is 3.5 stone?? What would that be in lbs?? Or kilograms? I've seen it a lot but damn it I don't know how to convert!

I doubt it. With all my pregnancies I've been more of a grazer. I gained 11 lbs with my son and 9 with my daughter.
