no appetite.

I am about 18 weeks pregnant and have absolutely no appetite. I am not nauseaus- it is just that no food appeals to me. I force myself to eat- but don't ever really enjoy it. Anyone have similar problems?
Also, I don't ever want to shower. I have been going 2 days in between one (I wash my face/brush my teeth/use deoderant/fresh clothes) so i'm not all nasty- I am just sooo lazy.

  • The lack of energy could be from the lack of appetite. If you aren't hungry, you may not be eating enough even if you force yourself to eat. Make sure to take your vitamins, get lots of rest, and make sure you eat several small meals and snacks throughout the day.

  • I didn't have an appetite during this last pregnancy. Usually I am eating like a trucker and stuffing myself with desserts. I tried my best to eat some at every meal, but it was only a couple of bites sometimes. Don't try and stuff yourself. Just eat a little something, so that you can get some nourishment b/c your baby will take what it needs from you and you get the rest. That might be the cause of your lack of energy,too.
