  • Eat when you can, and eat something healthy. I am feeling the same. I can't eat a lot at one time, I think it's because the baby is sitting on your stomach.. or something of that sort..you have less room in there now.

  • I'm 7 months and the same way. Its cause that baby is pushing up on your stomach and taking up all the room! LOL! Just try to eat a healthy snack every few hours.

  • this happened to me too. My midwife acted as if i was starving my baby to death. SHE WAS FRIGGEN HUGE!!!! Anyway, i think it's normal. I've heard a lot of moms that have loss if appetite at the end of the pregnancy. Maybe your body is probably saying "hey! Your baby is huge already, you sure you want to go vaginal here?"

  • I'm only at 5 months and I get that way too. Somedays I'm eating everything in sight and others nothing at all. This is crazy!

  • The baby is taking up lots of room, leaving you with hardly any for your meals. I did this my first pregnancy at 7 months along. I knew I still had to eat-for me and the baby, so I ate tiny amounts of food every couple hours so it would be split up and I'd have room for it. Also, I drank a lot of apple juice and ate lot of fruit so my food would pass sooner and I wouldn't have that bloating issue.
