20wks - no appetite throughout! Worried about poor diet.

With PFB I was ravenous - ate well, varied, healthy diet - all the right things. Now 20wks with DC2 and have barely eaten at all since the beginning. How bad is this for the baby?

Initially it was because of first trimester nausea - fair enough I thought, but at this stage am a bit worried. Between running after toddler and just being worn out I'm barely cramming a piece of toast and a satsuma in all day - and often just picking at dinner.

Have been good with vitamins - but that's no replacement for a good diet is it? Urgh. Just can't bear the thought of anything.

Try not worry, the baby will take what it needs from your body, like a parasite.

I barely ate all pregnancy due to ms and survived on fat coke, gallons of the stuff. I gave birth to hig healthy twins with a combined weight of nearly 12lb at 34 weeks.

Aah, thank you neversleep - it's comforting to hear that! Google frightened me quite a bit, as it is wont to do. Though 12lb combined - wow! That's amazing!
