  • The good thing is that you are only 2 weeks away from your due date, so harm is slight. Of course I am not a doctor and all I am saying is JMO. But I went through the same thing you did. Nothing appealed to me at all and I couldn't even stand the smell of certain foods. However, I knew that for my welfare and the sake of the baby, I had to eat something. So even if it was toast or a bowl of cereal, I tried to eat it. I also maintained an eating schedule like BLD. Funny thing was, as soon as I gave birth, I was starving! Funny what hormones do to our bodies. Just relax, eat what you can and enjoy the rest of your pregnancy. In a few weeks, you will be hungry again.

  • when i was that far along my tummy was always too full to eat lol. try eating a banana or something light in the morning and invest in some boost or ensure supplement! it has enough calories and vitamins to help u out!

  • yeah def just try and drink some ensures that way you dont have to eat but your still getting your nutriants most of us dont eat at that point i think it's a early labor sign you will be having the baby soon either way so just eat as much as you can when you can
