I'm 25 weeks today and over the last few days have noticed that i simply cannot eat as much as i used to be able to! This has got to be a good thing in my case. I find it easier to graze than to have a meal of "standard" size.
I'm also finding that i'm starting to feel nauseaus [sp?] again lately too, particularly if i haven't eaten for a while.
I'm assuming it's the baby getting in the way etc.
Other than those in their first trimester, is anyone else going through this?
Hi RG. I had this last pg and especially later on. I did feel hungry but got full very easily and felt very unwell if I overate. If I had a full meal and then PUDDING I would be awake half the night with stomachache (so I just ate pudding ).
Yes it started around that time for me too and I'm 34 weeks now. I'm usually a very big eater but I can't fit half as much in as I used to. I'm also very fussy about what I eat as most things give me very bad heartburn. I've been feeling nauseaus too but find that eating little and often helps. Everything is all squished up to make room for the baby so I guess it makes sense...
I'm lucky if I can eat a proper meal just now, but I'll manage the other half later on. Grazing is the way to go, I don't remember it being this early with DD (I'm 27+) but it was nearly 6 years ago so you forget.
If you're sticking with your healthy eating too you'll be Kate Moss a couple of weeks after the birth, well maybe not 'cos I wouldn't want to look like her either
I'm now in my second trimester and recently went through a new wave of sickness. My midwife told me that it is a good sign. It shows that the hormones are working well through the placenta and that it bodes well for the baby, by all accounts. It was a luttle bit of compensation for feeling as if I'd taken two steps back.
RG I had chip shop chips for lunch part of the problem of being off work on holiday & too lazy to cook/make anything healthy.
I weighed myself on someone elses scales at the weekend & nearly dropped down dead, I appeared to have put on almost a stone in about 3 weeks despite eating less, turned out they weigh in about 12 pounds too heavy phew! I just ate some more to make up for it.
Oh I don't go, I always send DH I'd hate to get a rep as the pregnant bird who frequents all the junk food shops!
We have a bit in our town centre which is basically about 5 fast food places in a row you could do a different one every night then the Beefeater on Sundays to kid on you were a little healthy.
I don't do burger places tbh but I almost went to McDs the other day and I was going to get those mozarella things with chips then realised how ridiculous I was being.
We moved back to our home town in November & I'm quite proud that we only went to Dominos earlier this month for the first time since moving, shame the same can't be said for KFC!
RGP - lack of appetite will only get worse as pregnancy progresses. I cannot wait to eat a nice big meal!
Re. the nausea - you get a second wave of hormones around now, so expect to feel a little not right again!
I DREAM of chips from the local chippy but darent go there! Indigestion galore!
I had a vastly reduced appetite between 24 and 30 weeks (and I really love my tucker!). I'm now 32 weeks and have had proper meals for the past two weeks. I was eating cheese, crackers and fruit/salad for lunch and dinner most days, or perhaps Shreddies and milk. Now I really enjoy tucking into a small but nutritious meal and find myself needing those Shreddies at about 9:30pm too. I weighed myself the other day (I had a BMI of 26 prior to getting pregnant) and was delighted that I'd put on only 19lbs (okay, it seemed "only" to me anyway!).
