Losing too much.

Ever since I had my son, my appetite has completely disappeared. Towards the end of my pregnancy I started hearing that this will happen, but I also heard its supposed to come back. My son is 6 months now and nothings changed. I'm just never hungry. I never thought I would see the day where I actually wanted to stop losing weight, but I need to. My fiancée is always saying I look disgusting. Which doesn't exactly make me feel better...

Is anyone else going through/or has gone through this? Does anyone know what could be going on with me? I'm worried there could be something medically wrong.

  • I have no idea, but you should definately make an appointment with your doctor. Have you tried making the most of your calorie intake when you are eating??? Like if you have cereal for breakfast add a handful of nuts to it....lots of calories and healthy fats.

  • First I agree you should see your DR. Are you breastfeeding? I did and no matter how much I ate I continued to lose weight. i'm suppose to weigh no less then 140 but I got down to 130 and looked pretty weird because of my body type. Anyways as soon as I stop breastfeeding I gain some weight back. Now the DR says I'm about 10lbs over weight.

  • I have no appetite whatsoever for about the first month or two after I deliver, but I have never had it last that long. I would just try to eat the best you can. Maybe that natural drop off in appetite has your stomach shrunk down to where it can't tolerate a normal sized meal anymore?

  • If you're not breastfeeding, you should see your doc.
