Empty Feeling in Stomach

Early pregnancy symptom

An empty feeling in the stomach in early pregnancy can be very common. Extra nutrients are needed during pregnancy not only for the growing baby but also for the mother, to support the body processes required during pregnancy as well as her increased blood volume, and women who do not experience nausea may find they are more hungry even early in pregnancy. Increased hormone levels may cause you to be less receptive to the signals from your body that you are full, which may cause you to feel hungry even shortly after you have eaten. This frustrating feeling of never feeling full can last a few weeks or longer into the pregnancy.

Includes: Stomach feels like an empty pit. Feel very hungry even if you have recently eaten.
