  • its normal you just dont have the room in your belly anymore like you used to. just try to snack here and there and drink plenty of fluids.

  • It's normal, your baby is so big that your stomach is being squished against your other organs. My appetite actually just revved up in the past two days, I think my baby is going through her last serious growth spurt (I'll be 35 weeks tomorrow). Try eating six small meals a day and make sure you're at least getting enough water and taking your vitamins. Whatever you don't ingest, your baby will still take from your body...that in turn might make you feel a bit more lethargic than usual. Just remember that you're almost there mama!

  • there is a lot of stored nutrients for your body to pass through the placenta. Just eat when (IF) you get hungry. try to drink a lot of water, even if you don't want to.
