Total appetite loss-second trimester

Help! I just dont want to eat at all.
Im 22 weeks now, 2 weeks ago I totally lost my appetite. I had cold and tought it was related but I am OK for long time and appetite did not return.
I am skipping meals and if I eat I feel after like I am going to explode. Today I had 1decaff late in the morning and felt full from it until late afternoon, at 5pm I had 2 toasts and 2 kiwis and 2 hrs later still feel so full.

I was never big eater-often ordering kids portions but since I got pregnant in first trimester I was eating regularly 3 meals per day, got hungry and was starving and craving food- mostly carrots and kiwi. I only gained 2 kg overal during my pregnancy up to week 22 and feel I must have recently loose weight from my back as my maternity pants are just hanging loose on my butt now and when I bought them at 15 weeks they were tight. I dont want to endanger the baby by not giving her nutrition, she measured OK at 20 weeks scan.
Anyone else has this?

I've been exactly the same. Eat little and often but most importantly keep your fluids up

I was exactly the same during my last pregnancy, couldn't face much more than a slice of toast a day. Midwife suggested smoothies as more nutritional but I couldn't face them either.
Ended the pregnancy two stone lighter than I'd started it. Keep your fluids up as much as you can stomach.

Yes I have also lost 21lb ( 31wks) and yet to put a lb back on. I'm measuring exactly right and a scan last week showed baby is healthy weighing 3lb 10oz already so he must be getting enough of what he needs
