It is normal.: Congrats! It is normal to want to eat everything when your pregnant. Usually this comes in waves as there will be periods during your pregnancy when your appetite will be low. Be careful. Depending on your weight now, you don't want to gain more than about 30 pounds. It is okay to eat...just eat healthy foods. Fruits and veggies, not ice-cream and cake. LOL. Enjoy!! ...Read more
