    Default 25 weeks PG & no appetite

    Anyone else lost entire appetite in second trimester? I just dont feel like eating I'm currently 25 weeks PG.

    I have had quite a bit of stress lately which may be contributing to it but my weight has been up & down since day 1 of this PG, I have recently put on 3kg so I'm back to my starting weight when I fell PG.



    Seems strange that I just don't want to eat??? I forced myself to have an apple at lunch time & had a chocolate bar while out & about this afternoon but thats it! I'm taking multivitamins (pregnancy ones) so not too worried at the moment.

    My next hospital visit isn't for another 2 weeks, as this is my second baby I had 8 weeks between the visits.

    Has anyone experienced or is anyone else experiencing this???

    Hi Danielle,
    I had m/s for most of my first preg. The doc said as long as I take the supplements properly I would be o.k. I also lost a few kilos before I started to gain. Sounds pretty normal to me. Goodluck with the rest of your preg.

    Do you have headaches, feel pain in your upper body (around your diaphragm - like a wind/gas that can't get out), see little "spots" in your vision?? If yes, get your urine and bloodpressure tested. Having no appetite was one of the "symptoms" I got with the HELLP syndrome. I don't want to freak you out, just inform you.

    I do agree with sandygirl. If you take your supplements, I don't think there would be a problem.

    I had no appetite and MS throughout my whole pregnancy with DS and I found that I could manage soups and boost type frozen juices.

    I had that somewhere around 20 weeks where I just didn't feel like eating and then when I tried eating I just felt full after taking a couple of bites. However it did pass and I am now back to eating normally. I say trust your body and listen to it, if you are in danger of starving yourself or your baby your body will kick in and make you feel ravenous!!

    Good luck!

    Hi Danielle

    My appetite still comes and goes - I think tiredness / sleep deprivation and stress levels contribute to it. I find if I haven't slept well, or if I am stressed about something, I am less likely to eat. Some days I am ravenous though! Others, I can go right through lunch time without eating or feeling hungry.

    Kristy hahaha you nutter!!! My haven't things changed since early pregnancy, although even with eating all that lasagne & gelato I still managed to lose 6kg in the first trimester!! LOL I actually had curried sausages last night so things are looking better now.
    BTW, OMG did you have to mention my chocolate shop!!! They are open late tonight, I guess we'll be going for a drive now YUMMO!!!
    PS I can't believe you're 9 weeks already!!!! Well done hun xoxo

    Lea Thanks, I've been nibbling a bit today, well I've had some weetbix & an apple which is more than recent times, looks like it might be passing already!

    SJ Funny how it works out hey, you may have a small belly but still have a big baby!! DD was 8lb 13oz & I was small & pretty much lived off only spaghetti & fruit (not together haha) So your bub would have been nice & cuddly like my little chubba hehehe

    Evening star LOL @ buying shares, I think the same way about the medication I take for HG, because I need it all the way through pregnancy & costs $12 per tablet (yes $12 per tablet) I definately should look at shares hahaha

    Thanks again ladies for your advice

    I am feeling very much the same, I will have some cereal for breakfast and only have a snack in the afternoon and no dinner. My weight hasn't moved for weeks and I even think I may have lost a kilo, so far I have gained just under 5 kg's.
    I definately put it down to stress as I am experiencing more than my fair share atm too.
    hope you feel better soon.
