It almost feels like a return of the first trimester quease. No food seems appealing, and I just don't feel that hungry at all. I don't remember this from last time, is this normal-ish? ANyone else feel yucky coming into the "home stretch"?

My appetite, too, has recently diminished lately. I really don't have that 'in love with food thing' anymore as I did most of the pregnancy. And at mealtimes, I can't eat nearly as much as I had been able.
I'm 36 weeks, so maybe it's b/c my stomach is so squashed now!

Ugh, I'm totally there. My stomach is so squashed, I can't get anything in there. So I'm constantly nauseous and nothing sounds good to eat. On the other hand, since I'm not able to eat or drink much, my body is crying out for energy and I feel dehydrated, too. Never knew I could be simultaneously ravenous and "stuffed"... Ah, the joys of pregnancy...

hey Lilkat,
How was your due date calculated? My 'official' due date is the same as yours, 3/18.
But my LMP was on a Monday, June 11th, I think....which means I am technically 40 weeks on a Monday as well...but b/c of the leapyear I think those round circle due date calculators are off...just wondering who gave you the due date...
Thanks

yoga_mama88 - yeah, I'm confusing My mw set my EDD for 41 weeks, since this is number 1; she says first-timers go to 41w3d, on average, and she didn't want me to start getting antsy too soon . So, I do hit 40 weeks on 3/11. My LMP was June 5th and my periods have always been like clockwork, plus I'm 99% sure I O'd on 6/19, and my 20w us backed up those dates.

Unfortunately, my mw's tricksy plan has failed; I'm antsy already anyway! (I'm 37w tomorrow)

I don't feel as though my stomach is squished so much as just feeling like food doesn't taste as good, and I'm not feeling any hunger sensations at all. I'm basically forcing myself to eat at this point.

I remember hearing during my first pregnancy that you know you will go into labour soon when you suddenly loose your desire for food - but it was actually quite the opposite for me! The night before DD was born (actually about 10 hours before she was born, I woke up twice in the night just to eat! I was hungry like I had never been hungry before!!

Then again, this pregnancy is very different than the last so who knows

I can't eat as much at one time, and I've got wierd food aversions and hypersensitive stomach/nose again, like morning sickness.
I'm still trying to figure out an appetizing way to eat a good amount of protein without having to make myself drink a protein shake...
