My appetite seems to fluctuate. Today for example, all I've eaten is a bowl of Coco Pops and a banana, and that's only because I forced myself to eat something. Other days I can't stop eating! x

My body changes everyday. In the first trimester, I didn't eat at all. I lost 12 lbs. The last few weeks, WOW, I can't stop eating, but there will be days where I could go all day without a bite of food. Our bodies sure are messed up being pregnant!

My appetite changes day to day as well. Think it's fairly normal in pregnancy.

Mine did too around then but for the past week at 22 weeks, I have been ravenous again, so I wouldnt worry, just try and eat for eatings sake and if food is a problem make sure you get a good helping of milk.

It probably hasnt helped either that I havnt really had any cravings. When my appetite has gone I think it would be helpful if I felt the need to eat something in particular, but I don't seem to have it.

my appetite has good and bad days and I am sixteen weeks too - does anyone else feel guilty when they don't eat as much ?(as if your denying the baby food it needs)

In the first 13 weeks I would be physically sick if I didn't eat within minutes of waking up - mind you I would be sick if I ate too much too. Now, some days I am ravenous but others I have to force myself to eat.
