before i got pg, i had a good appetite. whilst pg my appetite was the same, when i was 7 months pg and onwards i was starving and my appetite was mental. since i had baba 16 wks ago, my appetite is tiny. i can only have 2 weetabix for brekky where before i had 4 weetabixs and 2 toasts (before i got pg as that what my normal brekky was like), ive tried 3 weetabixs and i was in pain as i felt i ate too much. im not complaining but is anyone same as me?

I think pregnancy/post-natal period your metabolism sometimes resets itself, maybe that's how it is with you.

BL - maybe it's your body trying to get back to normal - and erm....2 weetabix for brekkie doesn't really constitute a 'tiny' appetite!!

what i meant was i now eat a tiny portion now where before it was a not too big portion . as i always have brekky, then i can go thru until tea time thats when im hungry again and thats it, now and again i'm hungry in the afternoon..

Bigiips. I'm not sure this is what you're talking about, but I put on about 4 stone when pregnant - ate everything in sight. And then immediately after giving birth and for about 3/4 months I found it really difficult to eat - like I'd lost all appetite and the thought of food made me feel queasy. I put it down almost to some sort of post-traumatic response to labour and the painful tiredness of the first few months - but then I was a complete wreck!
My appetite did come back, alas before I lost too much weight

I breastfed too - so was rather worried about supply and complete lack of appetite. In the end managed with energy bars and milkshakes which I could just about stomach. Now of course, I could eat a horse!

My appetite left after the birth of ds. I was bfing but didn't worry about supply cos I was, for want of a better word, a cow. Had loads of the white stuff.

Weight came off beautifully, but agree, there is about half a stone I can't shift.

Would come off with exercise I'm sure, but I hate exercise.
