26 weeks pregnant...appetite decresed?

I'm 26 weeks pregnant and I know my baby is healthy and just fine but for some reason over the last 2-3 days my appetite has been decreased. It started gradually last week but I'm not sure if it's because I'm eating healthier or if this was just a preggo thing or what?

Did this happen to anyone else?

If you are eating healthier and eating more protein, your appetite will decrease a little. You body can become "addicted" to unhealthy processed foods, causing hunger sensations.

Also, your baby is getting bigger and your stomach is getting squished. So, you will get full faster, but get hungry more often. Some people eat more, some people eat less.

I personally eat less because I stay full and make nutritious choices.

That happened to me with my first pregnancy.  I dunno if its from hormones fluctuating or the baby taking up room and squishing your stomach.  But chances are that you're gonna get your appetite back, lol :)
