    As this will be our first pregnancy can anyone explain or tell me if it is common to be this hungry at such an early stage of pregnancy? I know that later on you often get that way, but we only found out 10 days ago and so everything is new to me!

    It could well be psycological so any thoughts are welcome :)

    I'm not pregnant but i'm sure increased appetite can be one of the first signs of pregnancy so i assumed you must feel hungry quicker all the way through.

    Increased hunger at any stage of pregnancy is perfectly normal. Your body is not only feeding your rapidly growing baby but you're also laying down what they call "maternal stores" in preparation for breast feeding etc.

    I've gone through phases of being hungry but not wanting anything that was offered to wanting everything to not being able to look at food. All of it is normal, so don't worry and most of all enjoy your pregnancy.

    Congratulations :D
