So I'm curious how many of you were hungry all the time at the end of your pregnancy? I just got done with lunch and about an hour later, I'm ready for a snack again. I never thought my appetite changed much this whole pregnancy. And my weight gain was so small for so long. But now...it's starting to creep up there....along with my hunger! Is this normal for 35+ weeks pg???

Last week I had gained a total of 19 lbs. I know that doesn't seem like much, but I'm a bigger gal so it's better for me not to get too crazy. Should I be trying to control myself more ye think??

I actually couldn't eat much at the end b/c he was taking up so much room. Oh, and I gaind 60lbs!! Yikes. But, I have heard of SEVERAL Gals who were more hungry at the end, so I think each person is different. I just really wanted to say HI, and Congrats!! I am SOOOOOOOO Excited for you. 2 weeks left, right? And I think you should eat whatever you want at this point, you deserve it!! I can't wait to pictures of your little one. I saw that pregnancy picture of you too down a few posts. It is a GREAT Photo. And I don't think you are as "big" as you keep saying. LOL Unless you mean tall. GREAT PICTURE!!

Good Luck!!

how time flies. wow.

I wouldn't worry about laying on the weight. I am a big gal too and I gained 1lb for every week, which my OB said was typical. How I envied those that didn't put on any except what the baby weighed and it's "baggage" LOL

If you are hungry, I'd eat eat eat as you feel. Because I bet you anything, the last 2-3 wks of your pg, you'll be eating like a bird

Maybe your body is working hard at fighting some cold bug or baby is having a growth spurt and needs the extra rich blood (heck, I have a million excuses to eat. lol)

Enjoy these last few weeks. Soon you'll be holding her and nuzzling her every chance you get and won't be able to let her out of your sight I hope you post a pic of her in her onesie.
hug
Julie
