I am going through a separation with my husband and when i am upset i dont eat....this not eating has been going on for a week now and if i am still under stress it will continue. I was gaining ok up to now....what will be the effect on baby? Not sure what to do. I feel like throwing up when i eat and cant force myself.

((((hugs))))) sorry you are going through this...<br><br>
are you taking your prenatals? what about soups? have you tried raw foods? I know people with eating disorders or depression can easily go raw.<br><br>
Here is good article about eating during pregnancy <a href="http://kidshealth.org/parent/nutrition_fit/nutrition/eating_pregnancy.html" target="_blank">http://kidshealth.org/parent/nutriti...pregnancy.html</a><br><br>
there is a sentence here I am going to highlight for you that might give you a peace of mind <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> "If nausea or lack of appetite cause you to eat less at times, don't worry — it's unlikely to cause fetal harm because your baby gets first crack at the nutrients you consume."

I agree. If anything, you are depriving yourself, not your baby. The baby will take whatever it needs from you. If the child is still growing and you are measuring just fine, there is no cause for concern from that stand point.<br><br>
Sounds like you are really going through a difficult time right now. Do you have anyone you can talk to? Counselor or religious person or friend who can play counselor? It can be very helpful to work through strong emotions before birth so that those emotions don't interfer with birth or in the postpartum period. I hope I haven't stepped over a line saything that.<br><br>
I wish you well <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">:

From what I have read and what my MW said this is not true.<br><br>
If I was you I would talk to your MW about it and keep a food journal. You are eating something right? Just make sure what it is you are eating is well rounded, I don't think you need tons of food to grow a healthy baby just the right kinds of foods. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2">
