Hi, I am having the same problem. I am 18 weeks and I used to have a good appetite and now I have to make myself eat, I also have been getting stomach aches. I was getting worried to, but maybe its a normal phase of pregnancy? I've also had a miscarriage at 12 weeks. So I know how you feel, every time something new or different happens I get really freaked out.

I hope this helped

I'm kinda going thru the same thing...When I was in my 1st trimester I ate a good bit then I slowed down...Still eat but just a couple times a day...Like i'll eat around 11 or so and maybe not again 'til like 4 or so then a 'lil snack like fruit or something. Like today I didn't eat 'til like 12 or 1 (had a sandwich and some purple seedles grapes)...And 2 glasses of chocolate milk....And i'm getting a 'lil hungry now but not too bad.

Dont worry ya'all im sure all is fine. Maybe really small meals, you might just be feeling too heavy after food.
Sounds like it could be a phase your going thru.
A lot of food does not sound good to me anymore, im only 6.5 weeks. From the first day--just some things I dont want to eat. No new cravings yet though yet.

I have never felt like not eating things--new to me too. I have been preg 10 times though.

You've been pregnant 10 times? Wow.....
So you have 10 kids? I didn't mean that
as a stupid question it's just that
i'm assuming all 10 times went well....
I don't know about you girls but everytime I eat
saucy foods such as spaghetti, pizza I get really sick
and end up throwing up (sorry about too much info)
and those are the foods I love.....
Does that happen with you? Maybe even with another kind
of food?!?!

Preg now, 3 living and 5 miscarriages, 1 molar pregnancy with decesed fetus.

Spaghetti sause, tomatoe soup. Pizza suase always made me sick most all of the pregnancy. Never threw up, but severely nauseas. Hasnt bothered me much yet this time though. Only 6.5 weeks. I love these honey bbq fritos and now they are too salty and sweets, eventhough im diabetic the sweeter the better, now I dont like them at all.

I have been told that if you walk into a meal with the theory "eating for two" all you're going to do is over eat and gain weight. I am a very petite woman (started out at 95lbs 5 foot 2 and here I am 13 weeks and only 110) and the doctor told me to eat maybe 5 or 6 times a day in small meals (bowl of ceral, half a sandwich, etc.) she said eat when you're hungry but don't stress when you're not because that won't help anything either. She said that as long as i'm taking my vitamins the baby's getting that. On the other hand, if you haven't eaten all morning or all afternoon, try to just eat a piece of fruit. It's not very filling but it'll give you nutrients instead of just food. Hope that helps

I wouldn't worry. I have had many times during my pregnancy so far that I really didn't feel like eating. In the begining of my second trimester I had indegestion real bad. I would eat and then feel bloated, like i was about to pop. The same thing is hapenign to me now in the middle of the third trimester. I have found that drinking about a half a glass of club soda or soda water helps tremendously! All those foods that used to trigger symptoms for me are ok again thanks to soda water. (It doesn't really taste all that good but it's more than worth it, and usually really cheap to buy)
I hope this helps!

I barely got through a meal a day when I was pregnant due to morning sickness. Your baby can survive and be healthy even if you eat only one meal every 2 days. Thats what all the dr's told me. The pains your feeling are probably your bodys reaction to the sudden drop in quantity of food intake.

Hi!
I just found out I am pregnant about two weeks ago. Have my first Dr. appointment this week to find out exactly how far along I am. Somewhere between 5 and 7 weeks I believe. About 4 days ago I started feeling like I didn't want to eat. Still have the cramps which I hear is normal at the start, but now almost everything I eat makes me sick. Yogurt and chicken are fine, but everything else makes me have to lay down so I don't throw it up. So now I've lost interest in eating. IS this normal. It has me worried cause I thought I was suppose to be eating more.

Later Emily.
