pregnant and i never know what i want to eat

i'm about 5 months pregnant. since i've been pregnant, i haven't been eating as much as i usually did prior to my pregnancy. on top of that, i can never decide what i want to eat--literally. i'll sometimes crave something sweet for a small snack (chocolate pretzels, candy bar, etc..), but when it comes to meals, i can't decide for the life of me what i want to eat. nothing sounds appealing, and when given a few choices, i can't pick what i want. it's as if i lost all food-related-decision-making-abilities. am i just weird or could there be something wrong. should i bring this up with my doc? btw, this isn't just "sometimes", i can't figure out what i'm going to eat for every single meal, every single day. hubby is tired of asking "what do you want to eat" and my response is always "i don't know". i can't think about food and make a choice.

  • LOL You sound like me daily. I never know what I want to eat. I just usually pick something that I at least know I like. Weither I want it or not at least I still eat. I was the same way pregnant. My answer is ALWAYS I dont know.

  • I've been like that too during this pregnancy, and also still eating the same amount I did prior and I'm 34 weeks. I usually just stick with cereal or pb&j, rarely does the mood strike me to eat something different lol. I cook every night for the family so that's about the only meal that I eat.

  • I was the same way with my first two and now this pregnancy as well. I was so looking forward to having cravings but never had them. I know I am hungry but never know what to eat!!
