Ok so I am 21weeks and 6days pregnant and I have no appetite. I can go the whole day without eating because since I don't have an appetite I don't remember. Which is sad because I have to get up Nd make my kids food lol. Has this ever happened to any of you ladies. Do you know of any way I can fix this? I have never experienced this with my other pregnancies.

I'm like that when not preggo.. but it seems to be way worse when preggo..  I eat salad and fresh fruits. Also watermelon and jello seems to help me alot be able to at least eat dinner :)

I've never had a big appetite and for a while it was pretty bad during the pregnancy but I just started keeping snacks like popcorn or peanuts around or eating small meals a few times a day to ensure that the baby was getting what she needed and I wouldn't get sick... Maybe set an alarm on your phone or put stickies around reminding you to have a snack or make it a point to sit with your kids and eat at least a bowl of cereal or something small... If all else fails you can turn to meal replacement drinks like ensure but after a while they will get old and they won't be able to give you everything you need.  All a matter of just getting into the habit and Im sure in a few weeks your appetite will come back again.  Good Luck I hope this helps :)

I am going through the same thing. I do not have much of an appetite and I force myself to eat and that is because my husband stays on my back about feeding his baby, lol. The only thing that I do have a taste for is fruit, especially watermelon ( which I just finished eating a minute ago).

At my last doctor appointment found out that I lost 9 pounds. I go again on Tuesday and I am hoping that I have gained some of that weight back. My nausea that I had at the beginning of the pregnancy has returned and sometimes I just feel so sick. I am 24wks and I hope I get a good appetite soon. Never had this problem before so can not offer any advice on how to fix it but if you find a way, please let me know.

Good luck to you.
