But that's not the kind I'm talking about...I'm talking about the Starving Hunger that comes along with nursing. I didn't always feel this hungry. In fact the first few months I am sure I wasn't eating enough because my body wasn't giving me the signal that it was hungry (which I believe had something to do with the neurological and physical shifts in my body after giving birth...a bunch of nerves got messed up...but that's a topic for another day). But suddenly...I can't seem to eat enough. I am CONSTANTLY starving. And if I haven't eaten something in a couple hours I start to feel dizzy and light headed...and I start acting kind of crazy!
I've started stuffing 2-3 protein bars in the diaper bag anytime I go somewhere just in case I get stuck somewhere without food...and sadly I have to replenish nearly everyday.
Constantly snacking, constantly fueling, an eating machine!!!
This morning after putting Gunnar down for his morning nap I had to get out of bed for a 2nd breakfast before I could nap because my stomach was grumbling so much. In fact...I find myself eating so often these days that it is actually taking up a lot of my day...and another reason why it is hard to get anything done these days.
I feel like a teenage boy. Food is disappearing from our house faster than we can restock. I wonder if this hunger will subside once Gunnar starts nursing less and eating solids next month?
In other news...I got an audition! Remember when I submitted myself for an audition?? Well they called and want to see me next week! Crazy! First Chicago audition here I come!
