  • I have been there before with my first child 5 yrs ago. I actually got in trouble by doc cause I wasn't hungry I pretty ate whenever I was hungry and it wasn't much cause I stayed thirsty all the time. I would go to the buffet load up on two and half plates and think man I'm so hungry and didn't even eat barely one of those plates cause I had three glasses of rasberry limenade so he was told to take it away from me but it didn't really work. I only gained 16 pounds through my whole pregnancy but she was healthy but I drank a lot of water. I didn't eat much at all till I was about 7 months pregnant and then I started to chow down on my favorite foods. All pregnancies are different so as long as your doctor says you are a okay baby is super your fine. Good luck!! I'm pregnant with my second one just found out 2 days ago going to the doctor today so wish me luck too

  • eat :) make sure that you are eating the right things though and make sure you are getting plenty of water too! I know sometimes I mistake thirst for hunger. I eat and then realize that I was really thirsty!

  • the baby doesn't eat that much...if you are eating 4 times a day you will be fine

  • I'm 19 weeks and I'm not feeling really hungry either. No more than normal anyway. I just make sure I'm eating enough protein and fruits and veggies, and not worry, =] I haven't gained any weight in this pregnancy yet and as long as you aren't losing weight I wouldn't worry! =]

  • Im 33 weeks and am never hungry and havent been. Ive only gained 2 pounds threw the whole pregnancy but its because Ive been losing a lot. My baby is perfectly normal she is hitting all the points she should and is measuring just fine. Im sure your fine every pregnancy is different. With DS I was hungry all the time and gained 20lbs.

  • Im almost 35 weeks pregnant and I still havnt gained all my weight back that I lost in the begining. I went through a really horible period where the best foods in the world made me so sick to my stomach I couldn even look at them. I stopped cooking for three months because the site of food made me sick. It was really bad but boy am I making up for all the lost times lol Im three lbs away from being back at my normal weight and Im sure with this visit coming up tue. I would have gained it back or atleast two of the three lbs. I think your totally fine, its just how some women respond to being pregnant. Just make sure your drinking lots of water.
