23 weeks pregnant not hungry and have diarrhea

i am 23 weeks pregnant with almost no appetite. when I'm hungry and try to eat for example a slice of pizza i can eat about half. most of the time when i eat i'm forcing it down, just because i figure i may not be hungry but the baby probably is. eating is not fun, more of a chore. Plus why I hear i should be constipated i have had diarrhea most of my pregnancy.
does this sound like a problem? Or probably just stress and nerves?

Re: 23 weeks pregnant not hungry and have diarrhea

Try adding bananas to your diet which will help reduce diarhea. It is not normal to have diarhea for most of your pregnancy (although we all have our bouts of it). One of the reasons that pregnancy is often associated with constipation is because the vitamin supplements have iron in them which causes constipation but, is also vital to healthy pregnancy. You should speak with your ob and make sure that you are drinking plenty of water and getting the right amount of vitamins. Good Luck.

Re: 23 weeks pregnant not hungry and have diarrhea

are you taking vitamins? if not you should be on a good prenatal vitamin (at your drugstore) and drinking lots since dehydration can cause lots of problems including preterm labour. you should talk to your doctor about what is going on and some possible ways to help it. Also, prenatal vitamins contain iron which can cause constipation...u never know the twomay balance eachother out. Either way see if your doc has any ideas.
