Really could use some ideas
Fri, 10-09-2009 - 10:18pm
I'm 14 wks and still having trouble eating because my appetite has not returned. Nothing sounds appealing to me, even when I'm hungry! I'd rather just not eat when I'm feeling like this, but I know that's not good for the babies. Anyone have any suggestions? Suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I've been sick lately and because of that nothing sounds good to me either. I've just been forcing myself to eat healthy, since nothig sounds good I might as well go with good stuff. I went through it during my first pregnancy, I just had to force myself to eat. I wish I had a better idea for you.

Oh sweetie, been there done that!!! My morning sickness lasted until 17 weeks, so hopefully you will soon be done, my appetite took forever to come back! One thing I enjoyed was apple slices with a little peanut butter on them, that really kept my blood sugar up and made me feel good. Also, not really healthy but take out and fast food appealed to me much more than anything home cooked. I think it was the act of cooking that turned me off. I wish I had more suggestions, I remember how hard it was to find something that I liked.

Hang in there, it DOES get better!
