I've noticed my appetite has gone WAY DOWN since my first trimester. I have more aversions than ever and everything is grossing me out. I probably am at a good 1 meal a day which I know isn't enough nutrients for the baby.

Side note- I went to get a salad at Quiznos for lunch and there was a dead bug in it! I am officially grossed out for the rest of the day and can't trust any food- even healthy!

So where is your appetite at these days? Is it totally different than first trimester?

I'm not eating as much, I think. I can have normal meals now, whereas before I would have a lot of little meals. I don't have any aversions though, other than smelly onions.

Totally off topic but I really want Quizno's right now and our shut down not too long ago

My appetite has slowly increased as the morning sickness started to go away. On the bright side, I am now able to eat healthier than I was before. When I was sick I had to eat whatever sounded good, which was usually sugary carbs.

I always feel really hungry now, but then when it comes times for me to eat, I get full really fast! I'm definitely not eating as crappy as I was in the first trimester - then I was all about the carbs. Now I've gone back to eating somewhat normally. I will always love macaroni and cheese though - you can't take that from me!!!

Gross about the bug.

I am RAVENOUS. But then I eat and I take like 5 bites and I'm done so I have no idea what is going on anymore honestly.
Excuse me if my typing is bad There's probably a baby in my arms.

For the most part I have no real appetite either, then when I do feel hungry, I get full pretty quickly so that's that. I need to get better about this because I don't think I'm getting the calories I need. :/

Yes I am the same way! I can only take a few bites and I'm either full or disgusted by what I'm eating. I wonder if this is natures way of not letting you gain too many lbs! Maybe the bug was also a sign? Haha

Oh ick! A big!? I sure hope you got a new salad for free!

I have zero appetite when I'm pregnant. Absolutely nothing. Which is why I lose so much weight in the beginning and never really get it back. But don't hate me be user once the kiddo is out in ravenous and never stop eating, which in turns makes me gain 20+ pounds right off the bat.

There's hardly anything I like to eat right now, and when I eat I get full so fast. I don't want to eat, and it sucks cause I will feel like crap till I do. I am eating way way less than the first trimester, but I'm gaining now when eating like a pig then made me gain nothing. So weird!

I eat 3 small meals a day! I am starved, then I start to eat and only eat very little. I know this isn't good for baby, but if I gorge myself, I pay for it and am miserable for hours. Also, I have also drank soda with all my pregnancies, but it's really affecting me this pregnancy, anyone else having any issues like this? I know caffeine is not good, but I work 12 hr shifts, so I need something and protein is not my thing right now. Ugh

I get full faster too, but I actually have an appetite now. I didn't have one at all in the first trimester. I am enjoying being able to eat again, lol.
