  • I completely lost my appetite when I was pregnant. I've always loved to eat but I had zero interest in food during my pregnancy. I actually lost 13lbs in the first 3 months and only gained that back. I was the exact same weight the day I went into labor as I was on my first pre-natal check up! But my baby was born 7lbs 8oz and perfectly healthy. Go figure!

  • Make sure you take your pre-natal vitamins. When I was preggo with my son, I ate like a horse. Now that I'm preggo with son #2, I'm NEVER hungry. If it were up to me I'd eat one meal a day, but I will do small snacks instead.

  • I never got a good pregnant appetite, either, and did just fine! Make sure the things you DO eat are healthy, and always have snacks readily available should you have the slightest urge to eat.

  • The baby will take whatever it need from you. Just be carefull you get enough for YOU i have seen moms that have had their teeth decay because the baby was taking all their calcium and they weren't bringing in enough for themselves.
