    I've been hungry most of the day, although all I have had to eat is bowl of Rice Krispies and 2 slices of toast at 9am and then a philadelphia cheese sandwich and packet of McCoys crisps at 3pm, but I just feel hungry constantly.

    Is there a growth spurt around 24 weeks?

    Yes, for sure. That's quite a big one around 17-18 weeks too. Prepare for a lot of stretching pain!

    LMAO! God, I worry about eating too much. All I have had so far is a bowl of Rice Krispies and 2 slices of toast since 8am - oh and a small Smarties cookie at about 11am.

    I know it sounds boring, but you could try eating some brown carbs like brown rice, brown bread or brown pasta. The low GI carb will provide a slow release energy source. Get lots of protein, too. A few chicken and brown rolls would be perfect.

    A huge bowl of porridge will be good, too.

    During pregnancy your metabolism goes through the roof which is why you feel constantly hungry. You probably crave sweet things as your body is trying to raise its blood sugar levels.

    At the moment Porridge is one of my favourite things to eat.
    Although I probably don't have it the healthiest way (lots of sugar and sometimes a bit of butter on the top :oops: )

    I've gone right off chicken for some reason.
