@MsSparklyBee:  That has happened to me since the 2nd trimester. I have packed some organic granola bars next to my bed so I can eat while I’m still kind of asleep

Only in the last couple weeks for me (36 weeks now).  Unfortunately I have GD, so I have to take a fasting blood sugar every morning though, so I just get to lay there and listen to my stomach growl.

I am hungry all the time…. and it sucks when I am hungry late at night but I never wake up due to hunger.  I might go to bed a little hungry (I just don’t want to make food at 12 0 clock).  I am in my 3rd trimester.  I do wake up hungry some days…. and since I get up early with dh to make hm breakfast and lunch for work, I will eat a small breakfast at 4am and then again around 8am. 

I started getting super hungry like this my 2nd tri.

I have been hungry in the middle of the night during my whole pregnancy. I eat right before going to bed, and still wake up in the middle of the night with hunger pains.

I have GD as well, and leave a pb sandwich (carbs, fat, protein) ready for me to eat.   I was told to definitely eat in the middle of the night to keep my fasting sugars regulated in the morning.

This happens to me a lot too. I wake up in the night and I’m starving. I lay in bed and hope that it passes but my stomach keeps growling until I get up and eat something. My go-to snack is a banana but sometimes I’ll have something else like a granola bar.

 

There are other times when I can make it through the night without needing to eat but then I wake up super early (like 6:00) and I’m starving. When that happens I just get up and eat breakfast and go back to bed for a couple hours.

 

ETA: I’m only 11 weeks today so hopefully this hunger doesn’t continue for my whole pregnancy or else I’m going to gain a ton of weight!

@MsSparklyBee:  In my first trimester I would wake up and get nauseous if I didn’t eat. I would make a PB&J to keep on my nightstand in a plastic baggie. I’d wake up, take 1-2 bites, and fall right back asleep. If I didn’t have anything, I’d toss and turn forever, and sometimes end up throwing up.

PB&J = Lifesaver!

I was hungry constantly for my entire pregnancy. I can’t tell you how many times I got up in the wee hours to have a snack.
