    Hi All, I am really starting to stress about this. My nausea and vomiting has been gone for about three weeks, but I still have no appetite.

    I am hungry but there is absolutely nothing I want to eat. I am worried I am not eating enough for the baby, but there is nothing I feel like eating.

    Do you think this is serious? Anyone else in the same boat?

    I am 14+5 weeks. I am seeign my OB next week and will mention it then, but wanted to know what you ladies think.

    Thanks!

    Hi, don;t worry about it.
    I got rid of MS at 14 weeks ish but did not get my appetite back until about 20 weeks. Now I can;t stop eating.
    You body wil tell you what it does and doesn't need.
    Try some soup, I found that I could eat quite a lot of soup, so ended up making my own veggie soups and lasted on them for three meals a day for about three weeks.

    exactly what jaybee says - your body will tell you. There are times when I am not hungry at all and just can't eat - it's kind of hard to eat with all kicking, breathing problems and heartburn at this point but then there are days when I can't stop eating. I gained 24 pounds at this point which is crazy but I started a little too thin. When the bubs goes through growth spurts, you'll eat tons and will have a killer appetite, you'll see - you're almost at that point when they suddenly grow crazy fast until about 24 weeks.

    I am exactly the same way! Sometimes I am so hungry it wakes me up but there is absolutely nothing I want to eat. Hopefully it will work itself out :)
