anyone else feel no desire to eat at all. I actually went out and bought some instant breakfast (shoot me for the traitor that I am) because I'm worried about it.

Nothing sounds good and everything just makes me miserable with heartburn.

Yep - I feel hungry all the time, but it takes about 4 bites to fill me to stuffed. NOT fun.

Im weird these days--some days I want to eat everyting in sight! Other days, I can only eat a bowl of cereal with yogurt...

I wouldn't worry too much; I think your body is just working itself out. Unless you loose weight, I would just try to get good veg/fruit juice in you... maybe a yogurt smoothie type thing? With wheatgerm and faxseed?

Mmmm....chocolate instant breakfast with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, blended to yummy perfection. I'm not having any eating issues as of yet, as you could've probably guessed.

I hope it passes for you soon.

Eating is fine but I had a huge aversion to breakfast food in the first tri and that has returned so I eat leftovers (Especially spaghetti) at 7 am. Oh well

Yes! I was the SLIGHTEST bit anemic at my last midwife visit, and now I'm taking an iron supplement that makes me feel like I have morning sickness most of the day! I think I'm going to start taking it every other day, and hope for the best.

I eat mostly b/c I make myself eat but usually I'm really just not very hungry. I don't know why. My reflux isn't as bad as it was a few weeks ago. So I don't know what the deal is.

I'm tired of thinking about food and trying to figure out what to eat. None of my formerly favorite foods are the least bit exciting, and although I'm hungry a lot I *hate* thinking about food. Ugh. Food sucks.

Although I have no appetite whatsoever. My MW recommended some protein shakes from the local health food store. I just hate thinking about eating! I'm sick of cooking!

Yeah, I am having a hard time finding appealing things to eat. I don't have an appetite for anything. I think it is just the progression, these babies will be coming soon and our bodies are reacting to the changes.


Though I do still have a taste for peppermint stick ice cream

I think I've had this my whole pregnancy. I swear I just eat for nutrition, and even then sometimes it's hard. The only thing that ever sounds good to me are really high fat foods. I had trouble gaining weight till around 24 weeks, so maybe my body just needed the fat. I dunno. But yeh, sometimes I wish there was a jetsons pill.

I LOVE peppermint stick ice cream. It's my all time favorite. Thankfully, though, I haven't found it at the store yet. I haven't looked either. Now I'll be looking. That'll be another 5 lbs.

That ice cream does sound yummy. I haven't had any real issues with eating yet at all. No cravings either! Just lots and lots of loud, uncontrollable belching (which I am guessing is my body's way of not getting heartburn!)... so overall I consider myself blessed.

to all the mamas having a harder time though!
