    Is any one else waking up in the early hours of the morning hungry. I think it's when baby is having a little growth spurt or something, but i wake up have to have something to eat to cure the hunger pains and then i go back to sleep, it's really annoying because if i'm not getting up to go to the toilet i'm heading towards the fridge - hehe. Also i just thought I would share with you that when I was 20wks the hospital told me i was having a little girl, I went to have another check up 3 wks ago and curiously asked them to make sure luckly for me i did - surprise a little boy - lucky for me I didn't buy lots of pink, wasn't convinced it was a girl - mothers instincts ay'!! :D

    Hiya

    Hasn't happened in the middle of the night, but sometimes I wake up at about 6am and can't get back to sleep because I'm too hungry!!

    Crikey - as you say, mother's instinct - just as well you hadn't bought loads of pink! So have you picked out a boy's name yet?

    I, too, have waken up to sounds of hunger. They have not been bad enough thus far to make the trek all the way downstairs to the kitchen. I have considered bringing food up to the bedroom (snack bars etc) but worry about the gas.

    My hospital won't tell us the sex of the baby. :( Our instincts tell us it's a boy. Plus my husband thinks he saw it's penis. We have had three ultrasounds and he/she is a little show off, coming right up to the camera.

    I am glad you were prepared to be told it was a boy. I think I may have gotten prematurely prepared.

    Good luck with your little boy!

    Ah yes, the nightly "food thief" visits our home too! And another thing is- never feeling very hngry at meal times but always inbetween!! But after battling with weight problems all my life, its nice not to feel guilty about munching anything & everything I desire!Thats what Ill miss about being pregnant I guess!!

    Ah m not the only one then. Its so fraustrating, I wake up all the time in the night anyway, but I normally find Im hungry, but I cant be bothered to get up in the middle of the night to fix myself some food. But trying to get back to sleep with a growling tummy is no fun. I have taken to having a filling snack about an hour before going to bed now, and normally I find that stops the hunger pangs in the night. I just cant have lie-ins any more cause my belly wants feeding!
