Hi everyone since becoming pregnant I feel as though I'm constantly snacking to keep me going through the day! I am 10 weeks and my starting weight was 49kg which has since dropped to 48 despite my constant eating 😳 an example of my average day (today)
Juice and sultana bran
4 vita weets and peanut butter
A whole mango
Up and Go milk drink
Handful of blueberries
Trail mix bar
Pasta in white sauce with mixed veg
With water throughout the day that's pretty average! I feel like it's a lot! Or at least a lot more than I was eating and more frequently. Is it too much?

I don't think it's too much but I daresay you're probably snacking because the food isn't enough to sustain you.
Do you eat regular meals? What is a normal breakfast meal like? What about dinner?

I don't think it's too much. I had to eat roughly every two hours (had GD so it had to be very healthy options) otherwise I was starving.
Are you vegetarian (I didn't see mention of meat)? If so, do you eat eggs?
Maybe try to eat a bit more protein and/or low GI carbs to help you feel more full - chickpeas, beans, quinoa, etc.

I'm finding at regular meal times I'm getting fuller quickly? But in between starving or feeling sick and tired if I havnt had a morning or afternoon snack lol Yes I do eat eggs often for breakfast just not on this particular day, also boiled eggs with salads etc.

I would be adding more good fats like avo and olive oil as well as more protein
