: Hi Lynn, thanks for your input. Atually I have been to the doctor many times about my stomach, but unfortunatly never got to the bottom of it before becoming pregnant. I was supposed to get a barium enima done, but had to cancel that of course.
: What is going to happen if My appetite doesn't come back? I'm already very concerned about the baby not getting what it needs.
: I feel like there is going to be something wrong because I'm not like most woman. Most people are still able to work and lead normal lives, while I have a hard time doing anything because of my stomach. I was'nt working to begin with, but again, that had to do with the belly trouble. I'm only 8 wks along, I thought that pregnant woman were supposed to feel hungry among other things.
: I do hope your right, i hope it passes.
: I'm going to a GI specialist on tues. but I don't know if he'll be able to do anything for me.I'll keep my fingers crossed.
: Thankyou again so much,
: Trinity.

Augh!! How frustrating and scary. It's so hard during pregnancy because most practitioners want
to wait to deal with "illnesses" until after the baby comes. But you know what? A lot of women
lose their appetite and cannot eat hardly anything for quite a while. I've counseled women who
were nauseaus and vomiting their ENTIRE pregnancy. The most I could do was give them a list
of nutritious high-calorie foods to nibble on throughout the day because they couldn't get down any
big meals and hardly any snacks. You know; peanut butter with crackers, a piece of cheese with
bread, a piece of avacado with a tortilla, small pieces of chicken, dry fruit, a glass of whole milk etc.. Sometimes they didn't
feel very successful but I never remember a case turning out bad. It seems like nature has a strange
way of looking after a fetus.

Good luck with the doctor. I hope he/she can help. Just do the best you can and try not to worry
too much.
