Not with this pregnancy but I did with my daughter. I would <i>cry</i> because I had to eat. It was really miserable. But! I had a super healthy 8 lb. kid so this time if I'm not hungry I really don't sweat it. I will eat 1/4 cup of food and call that dinner if it's enough for the night.

For the past week now, I've been experiencing this as well. I had major issues with morning sickness until 4 months, then a voracious appetite followed. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Eat"><br><br>
So, I am a bit perplexed that my appetite is gone. I force myself to eat, not really fun to do. I get sooo excited now when my stomach growls in hunger! In the meantime, I too am trying to eat a little and often. Our stomachs are so cramped right now, so a full meal isn't possible, as you well know. So, I don't worry too much, so long as I eat often. Yet, I love eating normally, so this lack of interest is distressing to me. I hope its a phase. Another interesting preggo thing, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

Yep this is me. I dread meal time because nothing sounds good and when I am hungry...nothing sounds good.<br>
Sometimes I feel bad because I feel like I'm starving my little guy. It really is a challenge to eat.

Well... I want to eat, but I don't find myself hungry. Today I ate 2 scrambles eggs, one piece of toast, a bowl of lentil soup, an apple and salad. Enough for me today i guess... I often do force myself to eat when I don't feel hungry though because I want to get enough protein and fruits and veggies. I was vegetarian during my last pregnancy and hardly ate any protein. I swelled a lot right at the end - I've read that lack of protein can contribute to this. This time... it's all about the protein - except some days when I don't have the energy or will to feel like a stuffed pig (from eating a normal amt).

I, too, am still force feeding myself. I never feel hungry, but know I need to eat. So sad. I'm trying to stock the fridge and house with food I normally LOVE, but even the artichokes are not tempting. Sigh. I miss feeling hungry and loving food.<br><br>
That said I actually had one day last week when I felt starving, and I actually decided I wanted pizza. We ordered from a place we love and I actually WOLFED down about 3/4 of a large pizza with green olives, ham, and artichokes. Then I managed to pack down 1/2 of the small cheese pizza we ordered for DD. And I felt great afterward too. Amazing. Most likely the reason I actually managed to gain a bit <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> (I've had trouble maintaining my weight this pregnancy.)

I have a question, my sister-in-law is due in August but she has been craving for pizzas and all those oily foods. I just wanted to know if that is safe for her? I mean eating those kind of stuff..I don't think it's healthy for her and the baby.<br><br>
I am actually new to this forum and haven't browsed that much and would love to get information from you guys to help my sister in law. She doesn't get to computer that often to get information like this, so I would really want to help her and the baby be healthy.

If she is craving oily foods she is probably craving fat and that means she should have fat. She could make choices to cook her own healthier versions of stuff and add extra oil for the extra fat, but honestly it won't hurt her if she has pizza when she craves it as long as that isn't the only thing she is eating.

I totally am forcing myself to eat, but haven't the slightest idea of what to eat<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Nothing sounds good and I have to avoid dairy. I hate cooking, but I can't eat out. My depression is kicking into high gear and not helping at all. The only food I can think of anymore is spaghetti. I'm not getting the protein I need at all. So frustrating!!!! I'm not even eating the fruits and vegetables I need right now. I think I need my midwife to give me a good scolding, but I'd probably break down and cry for an hour, lol. And why is eating SO expensive?

Oh really? That's good to know, because I bought her some pizza because she is really craving to eat one. I thought it wasn't good for her, since we're trying not to let her eat too much oily foods. Thanks for your reply I appreciate it!

Ugh, I'm really feeling this right now. Had food aversions in the first trimester but then everything was all peachy. Now I can hardly choke anything down. How do y'all force yourselves to eat? I really don't know what to do besides sip protein smoothies. Got any other suggestions?

Yup, I'm there right now. It's allergy season, so I'm wondering if I'm working on a sinus infection (which always kills my appetite).<br><br>
I drink Spiruteen ( a protein drink) and eat luna-bar type stuff to fill in the gaps. And make sure I'm taking my prenatals. If I stay on top of those I find I simply feel better.
