    So, is anyone else feeling the same as me? My body has no problem in telling me it's hungry, but there's nothing I want to eat! Even food I usually love doesn't tempt me anymore. Any other girls out there with the same? :hug:

    Aye, I'm really hungry all the time now but I don't actually fancy anything.. I spend ages looking in the fridge and cupboards going 'nope, don't want that, don't fancy that, eurgh don't want that' etc etc

    It started for me a couple of days ago.
    I feel sick all day - not enough to make me worry about actually being sick, just enough to make me feel miserable and put me off food. On the one hand I get a feeling of knawing hunger but there is nothing at all I want to eat. I'm forcing fruit and cereal down me for vits and fibre and today I managed a couple of tiny melba toast with a bit of cheese on top but don't want anything else. We're going out for dinner tonight for 'date night' and I'm dreading it although maybe I can manage some plainish pasta.

    I've resorted to Slimfast shakes cos at least they have some nutrients in them. Only one a day though because they contain 35% of recommended vitamin A which worries me a bit. Even then I can only drink the coffee flavour because it's not too sweet and it has to be so cold it's practically frozen.

    I'm also headachy and shivery, particularly at the end of a day at work.

    Jeez, I hope this goes at 12 weeks like it's supposed to!!

    Good luck everyone.

    Hx

    I have been suffering with the feeling so sick all day but not actually being sick, i have to force myself to eat little meals through the day coz if i dont then i feel so much worse!! At the time it is hard to eat though. Also if i dont eat i get such bad pains in my belly through it being empty its horrible!!!!

    Who could have known you could feel SOOOOOOOOOOO sick yet SOOOOOOOOO hungry at the same time!!!!

    Ive been eating lots of jelly pots with fruit set in the bottom at the moment, seems to go down easy hehe

    Me too, also have that queasy not quite nauseous, and not feeling "good" feeling. Though I had a particularly bad moment in the grocery store the other day and wasn't sure if I would have to bolt for the restroom or not :dohh:. but I seem to not really have an appetite either, before I was pg I ate very well, and was always hungry.

    I'm ok if I'm eating little amounts of food, like some toast, bowl of cereal, crackers and cheese but I really struggle with a meal.

    Going to try making lasagne tonight, just hoping that I'm hungry enough to eat it once it's made :dohh:

    Yes Tink, I've got that exactly!!!
    Feel very hungry,like others said but don't really fancy anything. My DP was amazed that I was turning down chocolate and ice cream when we were in the supermarket earlier! I think this may be the prelude to actually vomiting?!!

    Oh yes, I'm the same! I can be starving, but searching through the cupboards and fridge two or three times, hoping that something I actually want to eat will appear! :rofl:

    Then if I do find something I want, I can only have a small amount before I'm feeling overfull. :(

    Actually since my morning sickness kicked in, I don't think I have actually ever been hungry. I could easily go the day without eating but I have to because if I dont I just feel worse.

    I don't feel hungry at all, even if my tummy is rumbling, I just don't have the urge to eat.

    I've been picking at things (this morning I had a toffee crisp and a packet of fruit pastils tut tut lol), but the last time I sat and ate a proper meal was about 4 weeks ago!

    I've gone off everything that I used to love before I was pregnant, junk food mainly lol, but that can only be a good thing! ;)
