The weirdest thing happened last night. My stomach actually growled so loudly that it woke me up from a deep sleep. At 3:00 am.

Is that not one of the silliest things you've ever heard of? It's almost as bad as tooting so loud in your sleep that you wake yourself up.

I have noticed that lately I've been more hungry than I was earlier in this pregnancy.

However, the nausea and food aversions are still present, so this makes things tricksy. If I do not have a "second dinner" before I go to sleep, I will wake up at night very hungry and nauseated. I may even puke (yes, I did that on Monday night from this very thing!).

So, I'm thinking I'm just going to have to embrace my inner Hobbit and start forcing myself to have second dinner in addition to my second breakfast.

Anyone want to help with forklifting me to the hospital at the end of this pregnancy? Because that's where it's headed, people!


  1. There were somedays where I was absolutely starving in 1st tri. I would eat every hour. I kept almonds by the bed at night for when I woke up hungry.

  2. I've always thought life would be much nicer lived as a Hobbit - I love the idea of second breakfast!

  3. Some days in the first tri were like that for me too. Like several days of not wanting to eat much at all and then, all of sudden, STARVING!

    Now that I am just into the second tri I have noticed that my appetite has increased overall...I am doing my best to make healthy choices so I don't balloon up!
