Hi Ladies. Am 29 weeks pregnant and recently i have to force food down my throat, because i am just not feeling like eating anything at all. I am hungry but just loose the desire the minute i see food. is this normal? anybody else has these symptoms?

Totally normal. My stomach has seemingly shrunk along with my appetite. Even when I do eat, I can't eat much so I order something or make food and half is left over- odd? Haha. This happened to me last pregnancy but a little while later I became a garbage disposal so I'm hoping it doesn't come /not looking forward to it. If you really don't feel like eating, drink lots of things like Gatoraide (doctors go back and forth on this but its totally ok, Poweraide actually has Bvitamins for energy, I lived on it my last pregnancy) and then maybe get some Ensure. It's like drinking a vanilla or chocolate shake, and it has all the nutrients of a meal. It's for these situations in which you cannot eat, forget to, or don't eat. I know a lady who doesn't have taste buds so she doesn't like eating (who would?!) so she drinks Ensure. One drink is about one meal so you could try that too. You wouldn't have to worry so much about food :)

I had that with my first pregnancy, and just this last week Ive noticed its happening again. I am 25 weeks and I am really having to force myself to eat anything. I just keep telling myself I have to for the baby and I get a few bites down. I didn't remember it starting with my first until around seven months but everything comes quicker with the next so I'm assuming that's the case this time.
