10 weeks and barely any appetite?

I'm 10 weeks now, and before I felt like I was always starving, and now I'm only hungry enough to eat like twice a day. I'm nauseous off and on, but it's slight and not the reason for not being hungry. It's just that nothing sounds good, and I don't feel very hungry. Is this normal?

  • I was like that for 12 weeks and lost weight during that period. It went away around 13th week. Hang in there.

  • Yeah it's common. You basically have a mild morning sickness.... I didnt have an appetite either, i lost 25lbsin the beginning of my pregnancy and gained exactly that during the pregnancy. Just make sure you eat when ur hungry,and if you feel light headed/dizzy/nauseous then eat a little something that is vitamin packed and good for you. If you only eat a little you have to make the meal count. So minmal junk and more proteins and vitamin rich veggies/fruits. :)
    It usually goes away after the 1st trimester but canlast until the 2nd. Just watch yourself, you know your body, and make sure you stay healthy for that baby :)

  • I'm already underweight, so I'm trying to eat healthy things so that my baby can get what he or she needs.
