Appetite

Has anyone else seem to have lost their appetite? I am never really hungry anymore and when I am I will make me something and then be done with it before I'm even half way through. I guess it's somewhat of a good thing since I'm not supposed to be gaining much weight but I'm always afraid I'll be depriving little miss of something. I went from eating my normal 3 meals a day and snacking to maybe eating one and a half meals and no snacking. Is this something I should talk to my dr about or does it seem pretty normal at this stage.

Nope - I'm hungry all the time still. However, I get full almost immediately now. So I am eating less but still all day. And I'm gaining much faster now Sad

Your not alone..

I started losing my appetite a few days ago as well. Crazy thing is I will buy something or make it and half way through I just DON’T want it anymore. (sometimes just after one bite.. crazy right) :eek:

I've lost my appetite...especially at dinnertime. I will end up giving half my dinner to DH or saving it as leftovers just because I don't want it anymore. Your body knows what it is doing and will let you know if you need to eat more IMO. Also, our stomachs are starting to get squished by baby so they get full faster.

A few days here and there I am ravenous so I make sure to eat a lot then Smile Especially ice cream LOL

I actually just had this conversation with my DH. I do it more than I did before I got pregnant but very rarely do I actually feel hungry. I almost have to force myself to eat. With my boys as soon as my morning sickness went away I couldn't eat enough and by this point I was out eating my DH, i'm not kidding either. Somehow I still only barely gained 30 pounds, which with me being small is what my dr wanted me to gain. It's really weird for me not to be hungry all the time. I'm hoping it kicks in soon though because I want to enjoy food again!

I don't have much appetite anymore either--and nothing sounds good, even though morning sickness has been gone for about a month.

The same thing here- some days I am super hungry some days not- The heat doesn't really help much either. I find when its hot out I don't really feel like eating. Taking the kids to the fair later today- so will make sure I do eat before i go and save room for an "elephant ear" treat....hmmmm

My appetite changed too over the past couple of weeks. I'm only hungry at lunch time on the days I'm working and when I get home from work but not really at other times. Drives DH crazy because I eat something before he gets home from work and then I'm not really hungry for dinner rest of evening. I'm also not snacking as much. I get random cravings but after a bite or two I'm good. I usually try to eat something at meal times out of obligation otherwise I would just miss a meal here and there if I was not hungry and not pregnant. I think it might also be a hot weather thing for me.

No appetite here either. My morning sickness went, but the desire to eat food never returned. My "What to Expect" book--so NOT an old wives' tale--said that if you're really hungry it might mean boy because they need more food even as babies, so I thought maybe this is a girl. But seeing as you ALL are experiencing the same thing, it's probably another red herring.

I'll have the occasional craving and make my husband get it for me, but then find that I can only eat one or two bites of it and feel bad for making him rush out. And the number of times I've ordered take out on a whim and eaten less than half of one dish... But at least it's allowing me to keep my weight relatively under control; I don't think I've eaten this healthily in years!

I worry these days about not getting enough food to baby as well, but my blood sugar is strangely fine (it always drops when I need food), so I'm going to go with what Jenn said: my body hopefully knows what it's doing...

Glad to know I'm not alone. My blood sugar has been dropping too when I get too hungry and I get all gross and shaky feeling. I haven done that in a while so I'm guessing I'm getting what I need. Hubby hates it but he will have to get over it lol.

Same boat here, no appetite and even if I do find something to eat, I only eat a bit.

I asked my doctor about gaining weight and he said he would only be concerned if I lost 10- 15 lbs. His exact words were... "The placenta is very skilled at stealing what it needs form you". So, no worries about baby.

You do need to be careful about your bloodsugar, though.

I tend to force breakfast and then by 1PM I find myself starving and eating a decent size lunch. Come dinner time I am not very interested. I think I ate ice cream for dinner a few days last week.lol

Never thought about the heat but I do think that is playing a role in my appetite too. It is close to 100F here most days. I can't wait until fall!!!!

I still have morning sickness from 10 AM until I go to bed so the only time I'm hungry is the middle of the night and first thing in the morning. I could go all day without eating until 3AM!

I still have morning sickness as well, I think that plays a huge factor in my eating also. When I wake up I feel so terrible I usually wont eat until mid afternoon.
