Well, I'm not sure.  In general, you don't need that much extra food when pregnant.  Overeating and excessive weight gain is something you kick yourself for later!  (can be hard to lose)/  My suggestion is to eat healthy things, small meals and maybe go ahead and try to space them out every 2.5 to 3 hours.  Drink something instead of eating.  And at your next appointment ask your doctor about it.  How far along are you by the way?

Okay.  Most likely this is just happening.  Because 6 weeks is early and your pregnancy hormones are just now building up.  I did eat lots of snacks and small meals at around that time though as it helped me keep nausea away.  But I did space it out ==  I really don't think overeating can hurt you.  Other than weight gain.  Just try to stay healthy with your food choices and congratulations!!!  This is very exciting!

Today I had my doctors appointment and she told me to drink more water to combat this hunger issue every time. I will start trying it lets see if it works.
