Anyone else *not* hungry? I think I was pretty hungry the other week because I posted something about a growth phase, but as of this past week or so, I'm just not hungry. I eat breakfast, then I have something light like a bowl of yogurt & an apple & then I don't eat until dinner, it's like I'm not even pg! I'm 31.5 wks. I know I'm getting hungry when I get grumpy or start to feel physically crappy - like light headed or weak, which isn't often, so then I eat. I also lost 2 lbs, but I have had a cold for literally 2 months, the 1st half, the coughing part, was pretty bad. Thoughts?

I've actually been not hungry most of this pg. With my last pgs I didn't get to the "not hungry" place until closer to 32 weeks--although I guess I'm about 30 so I'm not that far off.
I am definitely there now though. If I don't get all my eating in before 4 or 5pm I really have a hard time getting anything in.

I have a very clear memory of getting towards the end of each pg and just standing and eating hard boiled eggs to slam some protein.

I look at everything I eat now and evaluate it based on how much protein it's got, and how much stomach space I think I have---like at this point anything I eat must be nutrient dense--or I really just don't want it.

You also have to keep an eye on the clock and just constantly eat. Even if you're not hungry, so you don't get those dips and get weak.

I think I just finished the not hungry phase. I am back on a hungry phase. I keep eating too much and it gives me BH contractions. I am trying to snack but I get busy at work.

Zoe, I just finished a hungry phase and now I'm in the not-hungry! I'm still trying to eat, but it's so easy to go the whole day with no food and then stuff myself at night. I have a great appetite in the morning, though, which has never changed.

I went through a hungry phase too, and now its dropped off....hardly feel like eating at all. Weight gain seems to have leveled off as well. I think there's just less room in there in general, at least in my case. When I feel hungry its the same thing...not my tummy, but the rest of me feels cranky and tired.

Melamama! We both had our first Dd's on the same day!! 2/3/00 Actually, all of our children are spaced about the same....my Dd2 was also born in '03, 1/13 to be exact & here we are having our third Dc's in early March

Thanks for making me feel "normal" mama's, I don't remember having this lull in appetite with my other pg's, I ate like a horse right up until the end.
