How am I feeling at 31 weeks and 4 days pregnant?

I used a dictionary to make sure I had an adequate description for you.

Let's take a look at two words, shall we?

adj. ex·treme (ik-strem)
2. Being in or attaining the greatest or highest degree; very intense: extreme pleasure; extreme pain.
3. Extending far beyond the norm: an extreme conservative. See Synonyms at excessive.


n. hun-ger (hnggr)
a. A strong desire or need for food.
b. The discomfort, weakness, or pain caused by a prolonged lack of food.
2. A strong desire or craving: a hunger for affection.

Yeah...that would be it. Uh huh..."extreme hunger" would be the most precise way of identifying what this is that has overcome me the past few days.

Strangely enough, it seems to overtake me almost every two hours. I'm not talkin' "I need a snack" hunger. I'm talkin' "Pass the meat and potatoes!" hunger, if you know what I mean! I don't know if I remember reaching this extent during the last two pregnancies, but there just doesn't seem to be enough food to satisfy my peculiar, unceasing state know... "extreme hunger."


  1. Oh, how well I understand that feeling. Sometimes when I'm not pregnant, I wish I was, just so I could feel like that, because then I could eat a whole lot of good food and write it off to pregnancy. It's uncomfortable when you can't get to any food, but it can be fun sometimes, I think (but then I have a major food obsession as it is).

  2. maybe it's b/c it's a little boy this time :)

  3. LOL...I might have developed a bit of a "food obsession" too.

  4. Chelsa, I was wondering if that might have anything to do with it too:)

  5. i've never taken a class before! i'm more nervous this time- i think b/c i knwo it's going to hurt! lol
    i went all natural last time... hoping to again, but who knows...
