Question About Hunger While Pregnant And Weight Gain

4 Replies
fran - December 14

I am 15 weeks pregnant, and I have yet to really have a appet_te increase. I almost find it hard to eat full meals. It tends to make me feel bad when I eat too much. I usually eat about half of whats on my plate at each meal, and then a small snack in-between meals. Like I said I am 15 weeks and have gained 5 pounds. I did not vomit earlier in pregnancy, so what I eat is getting to me and the baby. Is this what most other women are feeling, or is it just me? how much weight did you end up gaining?

I didn't vomit in my first trimester, but did not feel great. My appet_te decreased and I only gained 2 lbs. Once I got into the second trimester, closer to 18 weeks and beyond, I gained like 6 lbs that 4th month of pregnancy and then my appet_te came on full force. I'd wait a couple of weeks and see.. I only ended up gaining 22 lbs, but I felt as big as a house by the end! By 15 weeks, I was just coming out of the nausea and decreased appet_te phase. I think it will quickly change! My son is now almost 4 mos old. Best of luck to you!

I felt the exact same as you - I even lost 20 pounds (but I am heavier than I should be). Im not 17 weeks and just last week I have been able to eat close to a full meal and I actually feel like eating again. It seems like you almost change overnight from feeling sick to feeling not too bad! Good luck, you will feel better soon!

i'm 12 weeks 6 days and i'm still waiting to gain even a pound. i've only lost weight. it's one of my fears right now. although this week i've had a huge appet_te. i'm hoping to gain a couple pounds by the time i go for my next appt in 2 weeks.

Also having the same problem and I am 14 weeks. I've gained about 3 lbs and I have no desire to eat...alittle worrysome but I figure if I still have symptoms and not bleeding or cramps then I'll have to a__sume everything is fine until someone tells me otherwise.
