I am hungry. All the time. Except when I am full.

This seems to be the course of my days. All I think about is food. I wake up hungry and nauseous (although not as bad as the last couple of weeks). I eat something. I am immediately full after eating half of whatever it is. I wait a bit. Then I'm hungry again. According to everything I read, this is totally normal. I've been trying to make sure there are protein & complex-carb foods around at all times (brown rice, chocolate milk, granola bars, toast & pb). My cravings so far have been for Subway (veggie with extra cheese and ranch dressing on their fabulous new flat breads) and Taco Bell (7 layer Burrito with 3 packs of mild sauce). Luckily Taco Bell is on the other end of town because if I was eating it as much as I wanted to I would be in trouble (I certainly don't need anything else making me feel gassy and bloated, the baby has that covered). James thinks I should get a job at Subway until I go on mat leave so that I can eat all the Subway I want (I have to admit it's tempting).

Anyhoo, that's my day. Sleep, eat, eat, sleep, eat, eat, eat, sleep...


  1. Totally normal and I'm exactly the same right now. Isn't it frustrating?! I always feel gluttonous when saying "uh oh, it's been an hour since I ate last, better find something quick before I get nauseous!"
    I've also noticed that some flavours are so much more... awesome! Like apples absolutely amaze me, and grilled cheese has never been so delicious. It's like not only has my sense of smell been heightened, but it boosts my taste buds as well.

  2. ooooh!!! Grilled Cheese sounds fabulous. I was going to make chili tonight but I might have grilled cheese instead (although you probably could have mentioned anything and I would immediately NEED IT RIGHT NOW!!!)

  3. You know I wish I was in your shoes. I'm just nauseous. All. the. time. But not extremely nauseous. Just enough to not want to eat anything. I try to eat when I first get up because I try to beat it. Today I did! Sometimes I don't. Nothing sounds good to me. Except cheese. I love cheese! Funny fact... my mom ate so much cheese while pregnant with me I came out constipated. Hahah I'm sure you wanted to know that about me! But yeah I love cheese and even that doesn't always sound good to me. I just hope I'm eating enough, but I don't think I am. I'm so hoping for week 13! Come one week 13!!!
