Im about five weeks and six days along, and for some reason, I can't eat anything!
I either feel like im extreemly full (even though I havn't eaten anything)
Or Im extreemly hungry and for some reason can't choke anything down.
I'm just wondering is this normal and is there any way around it?
Just about everything is normal in pregnancy - everybody is different...
Have you tried liquid food: soup (thinking good fresh, smooth soup - like some of the Covent Garden cartons), smoothies, jelly (my personal favourite - even after food poisoning, it is easy to get and keep down), milkshakes, maybe even a little ice cream or an ice lolly?
Just thinking of a few ways to get some calories/nutrients into you without making you feel sicker...
Well i am 10wk 2day and i have passed that but i know what u mean. I was eating but little and often and i think that is the best thing 2 do i was best with toast or butties something stodge but simple! If i did eat a lot it lied like a brick on my tummy all night felt like not digesting and i felt sick!
this is exactly how i have felt for the past couple of weeks (until a couple of days ago) - i didn't feel sick, but i felt either full or so hungry i couldn't think of anything i wanted to eat. i have got into the routine of nibbling throughout the day (i wouldn't steer clear of big meals for now as your digestion may not be up to what it was before at the moment!) - for breakfast i tend to nibble on some dry frosties and a pear, then eat fruit during the day. cold meats are easier to eat than cooked meat as they don't smell anywhere near as strong, so try a cold chicken salad sandwich or salad. toast usually works well on a sensitive tummy.
the key is to eat li'l but often as possible...if you're neuseous, start w/ dry snacks, like crackers or something - either way, make sure u drink lots of water/liquids which is very very imp throughout pregnancy
You must eat hun! I was exactly like you, just couldn't eat at all! Was never hungry, felt full all the time, the thought of food made me feel ill!
Not eating started to make me feel very weak and queezy, I spent most of my time unable to get out of bed because I had no energy.
My boyfriend left me to get some rest, and then came in 10 minutes later to check on me and couldn't wake me up! I was completely unconscious and it took him about an hour of splashing water in my face to get me to regain consciousness.
I then forced myself to eat a yoghurt, and 5 minutes later I felt great!
Eat small portions little and often, things such as fruit, cereal, toast, soup etc.
I'm not saying you will end up passed out like me, but do you really want to take the risk. Keep your energy and sugar levels high, and also drink plenty of water to keep you hydrated!
I found that miso soup was one of the only things I could get down when I was nauseous, then I went right from being nauseous all the time to getting sick, I've only been able to eat things like soup for the past week cause my throat has been so soar though I did manage a sandwich yesterday (hurt, but so worth it)
I get like that the longer I don't eat. For example if I eat a little something right when I wake up and then little bits all day, I'm fine. But if I wait to eat in the morning, I don't want to eat and instead of feeling hungry at lunch I just feel worse. The trick is to force yourself to eat one tiny thing first thing in the morning and then keep it up. Things I have found easy to eat are: apple sauce, half a scone with butter, half a banana, a little bit of yogurt, a baby cookie or sometimes rice pudding.
