I am 6 weeks pregnant and i really don't have an appet_te. I can eat an apple in the morning and then some snack towads the evening but thats about it. I am also taking my prenatal vitamins. Do you think that's enough? i was told that not eating that much during the first trimester is pretty common and that during the second one i will be eating much more. Is that true? This is my first pregnany and i don't know much. Any information will be appreciated. Thanks.

dont be scared. your baby is getting everything it needs from your body right now. that whole myth about eating for two is just a myth...thats why when they say take folic acid you need to start taking it 6 months before conception in order for the baby to get the benefit...taking it while pregnant does little for the infant. even if you have to live on m&ms and pickles for 9 months, as long as you take your vitamins to help maintain YOU, baby will be fine...that is directly from my dr.

You will be ok. This is my third pregnancy . I'm 6 weeks 3 days and have no appet_te at all. I'm lucky if I can keep down crackers right now. As long as youre taking your vitamin and keeping hydrated you'll be ok. Eat what makes YOU comfortable. Youre baby is getting what it needs.
