i ate tomatoes and drank tomato juice. Helped the nausea and sickness. I snacked a lot rather than eat big meals (which I threw back up). Was better to eat small meals often.

I'm 10 weeks pregnant right now, and I feel hungry often and while I am I feel sick. The only way to help myself feel better is by eating something. I believe it's normal since the baby is really getting formed at this stage. I tend to have snacks around me all the time, like crackers, a slice of toast with cheese, juice, fruits..etc. You know healthy stuff. Don't worry it's normal!

I'm really glad I found this page! It's put my mind at rest that this is normal! I'm about 5 weeks pregnant and like you guys I just feel starving hungry all the time, but the sick feeling has zapped my tastebuds so there is nothing I want to eat! I'm not sure I can handle this for the next 10 weeks or more so I hope someone has got some remedies!!

I am almost 8 wks. and I too am hungy and sick at the same time. I am so hungry I eat, then my stomach starts turning and I get sick. I have only been able to keep down Healthy Mom Ensure and Pizza Hut Pizza....isn't that horrible? I can't wait until this ends.

Yes, I felt the exact same way until about 12-14 weeks. I would eat cream of wheat in the moring with fresh or canned peaches in it, it was all that I could stand. I used to eat eggs every morning and now the smell of them cooking smelled like burnt hair, eeewwww. I also ate a lot of pasta for lunch (tortellini, ravioli,etc, for the cheese in it), a frozen brand called "Amy's" (it doesn't have a lot of hydrogenated fats or salts or sugars in it)and it was easy to bring to work and nuke it. Also, I eat a lot of nuts, the protein is good for you. If you like sardines on crackers, they are a good lunch but it might be a bit early on in the pregnancy for them, if you are nauseous a lot.Cottage cheese (with canned/fresh fruit or cut up tomato or avocado if you like it and string cheese is good. Drink a lot of water, breathe deeply and avoid sugar as much as you can, esp soda.Hope this helps.

Try nuts. I take them with me everywhere. They really help.

Yes Yes and Yes!!! lol I am also constantly hungry and if I don't eat I get nauseas so it is totally normal and I am sure many pregnant women have that symptom. I am 6w 2d.


mandee25 - April 11

I'm so glad that I found this page. I have been starving for the last 3 days and thought there was something wrong with me. Thanks for making me feel normal! I try drinking lots of water and it helps at times.

Does anyone know what the EARLIEST in your pregnancy is that you can have this symptom? How soon after conception? Thanks!

It usually starts around 5 weeks. I feel too sick to eat but I know that if I need to. The nausea NEVER goes away whether I eat or not. I am 9 weeks pg. Everyone keeps telling me this will go away around 12 weeks. i hope so. I have gone off every food I love. The only thing I seem to enjoy at the moment is fruit smoothies. I have lost 7 pounds just cos I am being sick or not eating at all.

very_cherry - May 18

hi, i have been having the same feelings for the past 4 days now . where i can' t eat ehough. I am always hungrey and then i feel nausious. and then hungrey again 10 mins after i have jsut finished eating. the only thing is , is that i just took a pregnancy test about 20 mins ago and it came back negative. so i don't know if i am pregnant or not. this is so confusing!!

I had a similar problem, I spoke with my doctor about it and she suggested I eat several small meals throughout the day and to stay away from sugars and carbohydrates. If you do eat carbs, always have them with protein.
