So I haven't "wanted" to eat anything (except the cupcake) for almost a week now. I really have to force myself to eat. It's not that anything tastes bad, and the nausea is really not helping, I just don't want to. And when I do eat, I'm STUFFED after a small serving for literally five hours. It's quite uncomfortable actually. I don't know if it's because Callie is getting bigger or if it's that I'm depressed or what. So far, I haven't lost any weight but I haven't gained anything since mid August either. Anyone else???
I've noticed my hungry all the time thing has definitely lowered a lot. I still definitely get hungry and like to eat, but I've cut out some of my usual snacks and a lot of the times I realize I'm only eating my snack because I'm used to bringing them and not necessarily because I was actually hungry.
I get full SO fast lately! I think because the baby is bigger and has moved up higher, so it's simply that I don't have as much room for food anymore. I'm trying to remember to eat smaller portions more often, but sometimes I overeat (meaning I eat a normal sized meal) because I'm just used to eating a certain amount. Then I'm miserable for three hours... Fun times. haha
I have days where I don't want to eat anything and days where I eat like a horse. I'm not really sure what's up with that, TBH. When I do eat and eat, I'm not actually hungry though. I think it's boredom eating. Woops!
Yeah, that's me most of the time. Since I've barely gained weight since my low (I JUST hit a net gain of 0 at last appointment), she really stressed that I need to try to gain at least 10lbs this trimester. It's not going so well. Baby is getting bigger, but my lack of hunger and still having plenty of m/s is making that very difficult.
Gah, I'm having the opposite problem these days.
For the vast majority of this pregnancy I've been an average eater. Meaning, my eating habits haven't changed from pre-pregnancy, 3 meals a day, no snacks required...but for the past week I have been RAVENOUS.
Seriously, I couldn't even make it home last Friday, I had to call DH and tell him to meet me at a restaurant because I was too hungry to even THINK about cooking. I knew I'd get home and eat whatever I could immediately get my hands on...which likely would have been cookies, nutella and curious george snacks. Probably together.

YES!!!! I feel like I never want to eat anything because of how crappy I feel afterwards. I've found if someone puts something in front of me, usually I will eat it and be happier and more energetic - but for the life of me I can't say "oh - I really want x,y,z for dinner"
Yep. And when something does sound good, I'll only manage a bite or two and then it just tastes awful.
Of course, I'm sick right now so I have no taste buds anyway, haha. It's so weird eating food and not tasting it, I started chewing a piece of bubble gum last night and then realized I couldn't taste it at all.
I go back and forth between eating everything I can get my hands on to trying to come up with something that I will be able to stomach. I couldn't eat dinner tonight because I wasn't hungry, but now my DH is running out to get me a takeout tostada because I'm ravenous.
Sorry you are feeling down though, that sucks! Hugs...
