16w0d "Feed Me"

I have finally got my appetite back - mostly. I started being hungry all the time last weekend, but then I got this crappy cold and lost all desire for food again. The last remnants of my cough and stuffy nose are lingering, but I do feel much better. And I am now eating like crazy. I'll spare the details. Partly, I am just hungry. Partly, I was a little concerned that two days ago I weighed 3 lbs more than I did when I got pregnant. I'm now up to 4-5 lbs. I plan on bringing this up with my OB next week (the appointment is finally coming around - switching from 1 week appts to 4 weeks appts makes it a really long wait). I don't really know much about when I should start to be gaining weight, how much, etc. We'll see what she says. I'm very ready for this appointment. In the mean time, I'll continue eating to my heart's content.
Disclaimer. I think that I feel like I am eating more than I really am. I eat lots of meals and snacks but my stomach doesn't take much to fill up these days so I end up gifting about half of my plate to M. Which means I am hungry 3-4 hours later for a snack. So I think I just feel like a pig... that and my stomach suddenly started to poke out!


  1. Glad you are starting to feel more like yourself! Hopefully the time passes quickly for your next appt.!

  2. Oh yes - the pregnancy starvation. I have it too! I don't ever remember being this HUNGRY!!!

  3. I am happy to hear you started to feel better. The long wait between appointments is really very unusual, but I also found, that the appointments got more and more boring, so I don't miss them anymore;)
    Yay! for a baby bump:)
