  • Seriously, with your hormones like they are, almost anything is normal. You should discuss it with your doctor, but I bet you're fine. Sometimes I don't feel hungry, either. :)

  • No this is normal, but try to eat small portions and healthy. Think of a healthy baby :)

  • I was like that with my first pregnancy. For the whole 9 months I was nauseated 24/7 and throwing up 6 times a day. It was terrible so of course I had no appetite. I would force myself to eat 3 meals a day along with snacks. But, I only ate very little and would throw it up again. It was crazy and I still gained 45 pounds. I don't know how. So yes, it's normal for some women to not be hungry, for whatever the reason...mostly hormones!

  • As the baby grows your uterus pushes up against your stomach making you feel full. Your stomach has less room for food to be in it.
    That is why you don't feel hungry.
    Eat small meals more times during the day and you will be fine. Once the baby drops you will feel hungry again.
