  • yeah, baby is pressing on your stomach and there's less room for food in there. i'm only 19w and i'm not hungry hardly ever and i get uncomfortably full even when i eat just a little. i'm only 5 ft short though :P

  • just go with it, your body is going to be hungry most days. Just eat snacks and plently of water to keep yourself going.
    good luck to you.
    and as always if the no hunger continues for more than a week, give a call the doctor. just to be sure.
