    Hi all,

    Not sure how many of you feel the same way as me but i haven't eaten very well for about 6 weeks now and i seem to snack on bits and bobs all day.

    Jam on toast, toasties, crackers, crisps, some fruit, soup, cereal etc

    We are going to a golf club down the road on xmas day for a 3 course dinner and i really want to want this dinner on friday but unless my appetite picks up quicktime i might be offending the chef...............

    HELP!!

    (Anyone else not looking forward to xmas dinner?)

    I'm exactly the same. I'm just picking on food, for instance today I have had mushroom soup, 2 crumpets, an apple, a yoghurt a cup of tea and loads of water! I know it's not enough but it's all I can manage. The thought of a big meal or seeing food on tv gives me the heave! Going to mums for Christmas dinner and there's a fat chance I will be able to sit with them let alone eat it! x

    I'm the same, Rebecca_B! Not only do I not have an appetite at all, but when I do eat I pick and can't manage even half a meal in one sitting. I'm worried about my family guessing about my (secret, for now!) pregnancy at christmas, as i'd usually be gulping the food. I think i'll fake a tummy bug... but if they already know you're pregnant, i'm sure the chef will understand!!!

    I have been in the Christmas spirit for quite some time now. To keep the tradition alive, I have been preparing all of the traditional Holidays meals that my family enjoys year after year.

    Every time a dish is done, I have a little bit of it and then I just can't think about eating more. The idea of it makes me sick to my stomach. I love all of those dishes... :-( Now Christmas days is almost here and I can't even think about eating a big turkey dinner. More than likely I will have a small plate...similar to my 3 y/o boy and stop there.

    All I seem able to eat is light and fresh foods and beverage. I am always craving orange juice (which is weird cause I don't normally drink much of it) and yogurt, fruits and veggies, salads, etc. Big meals are not my favorite right now. Even my steak that I normally love is not doing anything for me.

    And to say, when I was pregnant with my son, all I wanted was junk food (go figure!). I could eat caramel cakes by the box and I was drinking pepsi like there was no tomorrow! Now the tought of it makes me sick! They do say all pregnancies are different....Now I know it's true!

    I'm having a no food joy time too - i'm picking at bits and pieces, but not feeling hungry at all. I am actually cooking Christmas Dinner and normally by now and am stuffing half the ingredients in my face running upto the actual meal and yet this time - it's all here and nothing appeals. I had one fruit pie today and felt full - and that is strange.

    Like Magoo - in my previous pregnancies, coca cola was the love of my life - now I have a sip and dont want any more!
