Seriously increased hunger- normal?

Holly • Mom to baby girl 🎀

So I know it’s typical to have an appetite increase, but when I say I’m hungry I mean, I’m HUNGRY. I can eat a full and balanced meal and my stomach is growling an hour later. I’m even being woken up in the middle of the night with empty stomach pains. I’m only 15 weeks and it feels too early for this.

My next appointment is Thursday and I’m going to mention it to my OB but wanted some insight. I will say I don’t have any abnormal or even consistent cravings. & I take my prenatals regularly. Mentally eating all the time is exhausting me tho and I don’t want to end up gaining too much weight either. Thoughts?
