Up Since 4

This is just insane! I woke up at 4 this morning, hungry, and feeling very low-blood-sugar-y. I grabbed some cheese and tried to sleep. No luck. Still hungry. Next, some raisins for the fiber, followed by handfuls of walnuts (kept beside the bed). Still hungry. More nuts... still deep abiding hunger. Now 6 am. Got up, ate bowl of brown rice w/ butter and drank some juice. Still hungry. Two bowls of rice later, I am STILL HUNGRY!!!

I feel like the Very Hungry Caterpillar, and am running out of food to eat. I have not felt "full" enough to sleep in the past 4 hours, yet I haven't really stopped eating!!! I guess I did NOT eat enough for dinner last night or something. I did read that this week (Week 29) and month she's going to be growing at a really fast rate-- maybe I've lost all my energy reserves and am going to have to fuel this little one via direct chewing from here on out.

*sigh* I'd better go find something else to eat. :)

I know how you feel! I laugh because I pump myself with those same foods! raisens, oatmeal, malt-o-meal...which by the way if you can find it is super high in iron.:)
i think it's just the stage your at in your pregnancy. I remember just a HUGE boost in hunger around 6 months-- hence the fact that i gained 5 kilos that month. yikes! so keep to your brown rice and raisens and you'll do good. :)

hehe... I'm currently eating yet another bowl of rice-- this time with cheese & tomatoes. Yummy. :)

...and I've never even heard of malt-o-meal! But oh well, from the sound of it, I'm probably allergic to it (malt, made from barley, has gluten in it). You're in the home stretch now-- how you feelin?
