It didn’t happen to me but I had a couple friends that did this during their pregnancy.  It was a short term thing for both of them and it went away during the 2nd trimester.  Your eating habits will change several times through your pregnancy.

I kept food next to the bed to minimize morning sickness, but maybe this help out with your midnight hunger, too?  Then, you wouldn’t have to get out of bed and all the way down to the kitchen in order to eat, and you might be able to fall back asleep faster.

I did feel hungry, but I never indulged it because I didn’t want to have middle of the night nausea.  Rice crackers by the bedside for morning, but that was it for me 🙂

I have felt hungry at night, but haven’t usually eaten during the night. It hasn’t been enough to keep me awake. But I wake up STARVING and even after eating breakfast around 8ish (usually a multigrain bagel and juice) I’m starving by 10 or 11.

Pregnancy is weird.–you said it, sister!!

It’s a new thing every week/day. I have the same thing in 2nd and 3rd trimesters. At first, I would just get up  in the middle of the night and go on the computer, not realizing I was hungry. But as soon as I had a glass of milk, after being up an hour, I was ready for a nice long sleep. Last night, I slept all the way through and I am going to eat a nice big breakfast. But yah, the first time that happened after eating a huge dinner, I thought, what is wrong with me. 🙂 Make sure to get a lot of fiber to keep everything flowing. 🙂 If you like milk, just 1 glass usually does the trick for me.

I never woke up in the middle of the night hungry.  But I always had snacks in my purse, the car, my office, EVERYWHERE so I could snack, snack, snack throughout the day.  Maybe keep something bedside, so you don’t have to get up, turn on the lights, and mess up your circadian rhythm.

So far I haven’t woken up in the middle of the night hungry, but I’ve been so hungry lately and feel like I have to eat all the time, especially in the evenings.
