Does anyone else hate to eat?

I'm 13 weeks right now. I'm nauseous a lot, but no vomiting. I hate eating. Everything tastes like crap and I have no appetite. I feel guilty because I'm not sure the baby is getting all the nutrients it needs.

This morning I ate an omelette, a few pretzels since then to ward of nausea, and nothing else. Now it's pass dinnertime and I have no desire to eat.

I remember being a little like this with my first, but not as bad (I did have a lot of vomiting with her).

I also went through stages where nausea got the best of me and I did not feel like eating, but I forced my self for the sake of my baby. I have read that the baby will take everything that it needs from you whether you have eaten or not. Try and eat small regular meals, rather than large ones.

I hope this helps.

Hi Ament!

Sorry to hear about your nausea. I have it, too. I'm 8 weeks. I've found that my nausea gets BETTER when I eat something. I've read in a couple of places that nausea might be caused (in part) because of low blood sugar. I just have a snack and move on.

I hope you can at least keep your prenatal vitamins down!

Re: Does anyone else hate to eat?

I have not been vommiting--just nausea and horrendous headaches.

I forced down oatmeal for breakfast, a little chicken, and a glass of oj. Still taking the prenatals daily. I'm still breastfeeding the first as well. Kinda scared for the developing baby, but I'm having a horrible time eating anything.

Hope it passes soon.

Thanks everyone.
