5-6 week pregnant & not hungry :(


Been for an early scan today & I am 5-6 week pregnant & for anyone who's knows the situation ... The babys father has come round & is excited too

Anyway looking at symptoms everyone seems to be so hungry but I'm not :/ I never feel hungry & I'm scared my baby won't be getting everything he/she needs.

I dont feel sick just seem t have gone off food & when I do eat I never finish it all cos I'm stuffed! Is this normal??

Xx

I get that way every 1st trimester I've had. Major food aversions to most things. The only thing that sounds remotely appealing is fruit and even then most things just make me feel icky after. I force myself to eat but I know that I should eat more.

Just be good at taking your prenatals. Unless you are super, super skinny...the baby will take what it needs from you. So if anything, you will just feel even more run down than you already would be in the first trimester (which is a lot) if you aren't fueling your body. Your baby will be fine.

this may sound gross but your baby will take whatever nutrients it needs from your body stores, calcium from your bones etc. Just keep taking your vitamins, and with time your appetite will gradually improve. Try and eat healthy when you can, and most of all....dont worry. Your baby will be fine

I feel exactly the same way. I have felt virtually no appetite since 5 weeks. I have had morning sickness on and off, but even when I don't feel like I am going to throw up, I just don't feel hungry. This is very odd for me because usually I love food and would totally use this pregnancy as an excuse to let myself pig out a little. I have to force myself to eat and sometimes I forget to eat for a few hours and I start to get really tired and even stomach/hunger pains. Just try to eat what to can. I also am trying to drink a lot of my nutrients with smoothies, milk, juice, etc. The only foods I really tolerate are fruits and carbs. Just eat what sounds good, if you ever get a craving and like others said, eventually you should get your appetite back.

I felt that way really early on... and that feeling stuffed feeling? Its because your body has slowed down digestion to get the most out of your food... that and some bloat etc.
Its best to eat small meals/snacks throughout the day.

Incidentally... a week or two later I started getting super hungry... not for huge amounts, but if I don't eat when I'm hungry and eat RIGHT away.. I throw up. So now I'm forced to eat every few hours (even every hour sometimes!!!) That started around 6 weeks I think.

Glad to hear this!! I'm 6w2d and havent had an appetite for a week or so. I always feel like I just ate a huge meal - even if I haven't eaten in 4-6 hours, so I have to make myself. Lunchtime is miserable trying to find something or decide on something. Yesterday I spent an hour making a light bowtie pasta with peas & cheese, and it was so blah & unsatisfying that I got in a bad mood over it. Lol
