Anyone else noticing the appetite kicking into high gear? I had two eggs, a cheese stick, and a piece of whole grain toast three hours ago and my tummy is already rumbling!!!
Another insatiable appetite over here. For the first trimester I had a hard time eating much. I wouldn't get nauseous often but I would get uncomfortably full and bloated quickly. Now that's over and I'm shocked at the amount of food I can put back - and honestly I'm quite enjoying in :)
Ugh, I really wish I had a great appetite! I haven't felt nauseous since like, 9 or 10 weeks, but the lack of appetite has come and gone pretty frequently. It has been a struggle to find anything I want to eat again in the last week or 2, and I thought it was a resp infection causing it, but now that that has subsided it seems to just be my normal for the moment. It is super annoying, as someone who usually can't stop eating. I'm trying to do the Brewer Diet (or some version at least) in efforts to expand my blood volume since I am at higher risk of pre-e, but all I can get down are banana, peanut butter, coconut milk smoothies. Ahhhhh. I'll be 15 weeks in a few days.
Although my appetite seems pretty healthy, my digestion seems so slow that I still feel like I have food in my system by the time the next meal-time rolls around. And I am still so bloated. Any suggestions on how to speed up digestion for the sake of the next meal.
yep, same here. this whole digestion thing is a major nuisance. I feel like I don't know how to read my body's hunger/full cues anymore. Last pregnancy I used papaya enzymes but I don't want to use gmo papaya and I can't find a gmo free one...grrrr!!!
