Losing weight

So my dr told me that I am losing weight today at my appointment. I know its natural in the first trimester but my dr is concerned and says I need to start gaining. Problem is I am never hungry. I eat a small meal at lunch time and feel completely stuffed the rest of the day/night. Anyone have any suggestions?? I'm already high risk, I don't want anything else to happen too!

Maybe try sipping on a proteine shake or two between meals? Some of them are pretty tasty!

i would definetly eat. Your baby needs the nourishment. even if your not hungry id eat fruit, nuts and good nutritous snacks that wont make you feel so bloated. Almonds are a good source of fat but a healthy fat and calories. I hope your taking a prenatal vitamin because eating once a day will not nourish that baby. your want to eat 3 times a day and two snacks mini meals throughout the day. speaking you are getting full id eat mini meals.

I'm taking my prenatals nightly... The meals I eat are small and I do try to make them nutritious. I tried eating tonight even though I wasn't hungry and ended up throwing it all up after only a few bites. I will try the protein shakes.

I had the same problem. I drank carnation instant breakfast shakes blended with ice cream in between meals. Eventually my appetite came back and my baby girl was as healthy as could be!
