    I had no appetite in early pregnancy this time around either, my appetite came about 2 weeks ago - so I was 18 weeks, now I`m always hungry.

    Everyone is different and every pregnancy is different as long as your eating a well balanced meal three times a day everything will be okay and your appetite will more then likely hit you soon.

    I'm not usually hungry, unless someone suggests a food that sounds good.

    I remember to eat when I walk through the kitchen, or when I start to feel sick

    When I was pg with #1 I had no appetite at all, I had to force myself to eat, for the sake of the baby, althugh I did have m/s for most of the day but even when I didn't have it I still didn't feel like eating.

    Also at the start of this pregnancy I didn't feel like eating much and I didn't suffer from m/s at all!!

    Hopefully you will feel like eating soon.

    with my first baby 8 years ago i was weighed at every visit. Now my obgyn doesnt believe in weighing. Do you put on weight breastfreeding,i thought it helped lose the baby weight.

    I started off the pregnancy at 63 kilos, lost three in the first trimester and then regrouped. I'm about 70 kilos now. I had likings for fatty and salty things but basically, any of my normal food was extremely unappealing to me so I did lose weight pretty quickly.

    I find now in third trimester, I am having to force myself to eat again as I often don't feel like it. I've taken vitamins throughout the whole thing so that at least I have some kind of foundation to draw on for those days when eating is a problem. Do you like Milo or similar? Sometimes, if I felt a bit off and couldn't handle food, I would have Milo as a handy backup. It always went down well when not much else would.

    My doctor doesn't weigh me either. I think they only do this now if it looks like you are rapidly gaining because that might indicate something that is a risk to your health. But some weight gain is pretty normal I think ... it's nice to have a reserve there for breastfeeding.
