38 weeks pregnant and I can't eat.

I am hungry, but I feel like everything is so packed in there right now, that there is absolutely no room to eat. If I eat, I throw up. When my stomach is empty I feel like I have stomach acid boiling my throat. I have tried so hard to eat small meals, but it doesn't seem to help much.

Has anyone else experienced this? What did you do?!

  • i could hardly eat when i was that far too, but even small meals didn't make me sick. like the other gals said, maybe easy foods that you'd eat if you had the flu. ramen, crackers, toast. hope you feel better soon! and congrats on your soon-to-be newborn!!
