It's probably nothing to worry about. :) Just eat when you are hungry and try to make healthy food choices. As long as you are gaining weight and your baby is growing, it's fine.

I wasn't very hungry with my second. I actually craved ice burg lettuce, not even nutrient dense greens. I gained 16 pounds and had a 9 pound 3 oz baby. Talk with your care brockder to make sure that you are getting enough nutrition and you should be ok.

I'm due in less than two weeks and didn't have much of an appetite until midway through my third trimester. It's okay. Talk with your doctor if you're concerned. They will certainly let you know if they suspect there's a problem.

I had my first at 16(30 now, and on #3) and I have never had much of an interest in food with any of them. I am due at the end of the month and I still have to force myself to eat most days. I think that it just normal for some women, we aren't all starving, no matter what popular lit wants us to think. If your midwife or doctor doesn't see a problem, then I wouldn't worry. Our bodies tend to tell us what we need, so as long as you are listening to yours and acting accordingly, I am sure you and babe will be fine. Feel free to PM me if you need someone to talk to who has been there.

With my first pregnancy, I was hungry all the time. With my second pregnancy, I had a goal to eat at least twice a day. Each pregnancy is different.


Make sure your food choices are good. Make sure you are going to your appointments regularly. Make sure you are taking care of you.
