I am about 21 weeks now and over the last week or so I have had a sudden appetite change. I am no longer starving all the time and in fact I feel like I am starting in on heart burn. Is anyone else experiencing that? Have people changed their diets to deal with it? What do you suggest. I have been trying to eat smaller amounts more often. I am not worried about weight gain (ie, I am gained plenty so far). I just thought this wouldn't set in until I was quite a bit bigger.
sudden appetite change?
Saralm - I was absolutely starving in my first trimester, but as soon as the second trimester hit I settled down into a more normal appetite. Part of that is that I was still in an active flare of colitis in the first trimester, and I think my body was searching for nutrients by telling me it was starving. When the 2nd trimester hit, I went into remission for the first time in 6 months (yay!!!), and I was able to eat veggies and fruit again. I agree it's weird to have our appetites just change so suddenly, though!
As far as heartburn goes, check out the thread that icy02 started. Seems like we're all in the same boat!
I am feeling the same way! Things I never thought would give you heartburn, do! I don't really have much of an appetite and really haven't at all this whole pregnancy (yet I've gained well over 15lbs) I am still having some nausea (at 23 wks) and I can only eat certain things...I usually eat tums or drink milk to help with heartburn and sometimes it seems like it's not enough. I think though at around 19 weeks I felt like I was ALWAYS hungry but that was short lived.
