i am 5 month pregnant to a boy and i have a 2 years old daughter. my concern is that my daughter barely eats i wake up in the morning and try to give her different types of food but whatever i make she doesn't want she doesn't even want to eat cereal i was so concern that she was losing weight so i brought her to her doctor and the doctor said she was fine she actually gained weight. i didn't see how it was possible considering that my daughter barely eats and when she does its not that much i know i don't over feed her i give her a small portion of food and i also give her fruits a vegetables I'm just a concern parent.. please help

I found my children went through phases of eating and not eating depending on if they were going through a growth spurt or not.

If she s still putting on weight then I wouldn't be too concerned. Children won't starve themselves either so if she's not eating then she's obviously not hungry. Just make sure what she is eating is healthy then you should be fine.
