Hungry all the time!!!

All day long I feel like i am starving! But I also just found out yesterday that I have a stomach ulcer so it hurts when I eat but then being pregnant makes me want to eat every couple hours. They gave me some medicine to take but it's 8 pills a day for 15 days and I don't want to give my baby all that so I plan on waitin it out until the baby gets here to take them. Does anyone else feel hungry all day or could it just be a side effect if the ulcer? This is my first pregnancy and I am 20 weeks tmrw.

Being hungry all day is normal when you're halfway through your pregnancy. However I would not advise not taking your medicine. If they doctor knew you were pregnant they wouldn't have prescribed you something that was unsafe to take. Going through your pregnancy with a stomach ulcer would be both painful and unhealthy for you and baby.
