    Default 3 weeks and still no apetite...

    Did it take everyone a while to get their apetite back? In the hospital I hardly ate, had to force myself, and now I'm still not eating much.



    Sometimes I get hunger pains, but eating is like a real chore... and the hunger passes.

    Yesterday I had 2 bites of a piece of toast and half an apple.

    I still haven't got my appetite back, and DD3 is almost 5 weeks old. I'm fully breastfeeding as well. I just put it down to the fact that my body is weird lol.

    It took me a while too. I ate well in hospital but not well at all once we got home. I think it was around 4 or 5 weeks before I started eating properly again. I think the sleep deprivation gave me that nauseated jet lag feeling. Once I caught up on some sleep, my appetite returned.

    It was just too much effort to eat once i left hospy - it someone else gave me food, i'd eat it, but CBFd preparing anything for me.

    Thanks everyone... it seems to be coming back veryyy slowly. Last night I actually felt hungry . I still cant eat a whole lot, but little by little.

    It's amazing how much your energy goes up just by eating a little more.

    For those who are struggling - bananas and 'Up and Go' drinks are the best for nutritional benefits and enery (thats what the midwives keep tellling me anyway).
