Snacking at Night

Did You Snack in the Middle of the Night?

I always imagined I'd be the hefty pregnant lady noshing on cereal and ice cream in the middle of the night. Much to my surprise, I never once raided the refrigerator.

Did you snack your way through the wee hours while expecting?

If I was still awake in the middle of the nite (I'm a nite owl) and hungry then yes. But I never woke up in the middle of the nite to eat.

Not the middle of the night. Also too tired. I had really bad morning sickness last time, but eating salty snacks non-stop stopped me from puking - as soon as I stopped eating I threw up. So there weren't many minutes of the day I wasn't eating.

I've never eaten afte I went to bed. I have the occasional "eat ice cream while watching the 10:00 news" but nothing in the middle of the night. I'm too busy getting up to pee. :ROTFL:

I never ate in the middle of the night while I was pregnant....but then I gave birth and started NURSING! Talk about hungry! I was eager to lose the weight I gained so I never actually ate until 6am, but I REALLY wanted to eat. I drank a ton of water to keep myself full and then after my daughter had her first meal of the morning I was in the kitchen with my GIANT bowl of cereal.

I've generally practiced somewhat healthier habits during pregnancy. I cannot remember ever eating during the night.

The only thing I did at night was go to the bathroom constantly.
