    Yes my appitite had increased almost 100% of what it used to be. You can eat just watch WHAT you eat. I much on celary sticks and fat free ranch. Or I'll eat a bagel with Low fat cream cheese. Just be careful.

    I eat all the time too. I usually eat cookies or chocolate pudding or snack bars. I just can't resist. I've never really liked healthy food. But so far I'm at 10 lbs. weight gain at 19 weeks. I don't think that's too bad. Sometimes I find that when I have a big glass of fruit juice, I lose my appetite. Maybe that will work for you.

    Hi there

    I had an increased appetitie during all of my pregnancies - and i have a big appetite anyway! the bad news is, our bodies only need around 100 extra calories a day in the first trimester and about 300 more during the second and third trimesters. You should never diet during pregnancy, but make your calories vount (instead of counting them) - by that I mean eat loads of wholegrains, protein, fresh fruit and veggies.

    Yu should expect to gain around 25-35lbs during pregnancy, but don't get fixated on your weight.
