Hi, I'm pregnant for the first time and now I'm in my 14th week. elders and relatives advised me to have healthy food, however I never feel like having food nor I feel hungry. completing a plate of meal looks like a huge task. is this common? by not having adequate food, am I troubling the little. one inside? please advise

Hi, you might be either having a lot of nausea which is causing your hunger to die down. I was in the same situation a year back. You are not harming the lil one inside because the baby will extract whatever nutrients and minerals they require from the mother (smart ones), but you will become very weak and lethargic. You have to weigh the kind of food you are eating. It doesn't have to fill your tummy (never stuff your tummy) but some dry fruits, fruits, veggies, curd, milk, protein has to reach your body in proportions every day. Please remember, pregnancy is still better... the actual fight will start once the baby is out! So please have enough to handle your baby and yourself post-pregnancy:) All the Best

Hii, yes this is very common during pregnancy. But now u have to take care of yourself and the little one. It is advised to have wholesome meals during this time. In your case if u don't like to have one whole meal at time. Then have small portion of meals. Incorporate fruits, milk, dry fruits more. And lastly a very common lines u will Hear now is "jo Maan kare woh Khao". So just follow your heart.

Hi Sandy, yes it is true you need to take care of your diet but in 1st trimester many dont feel like eating so do not worry eat whatever you can avoid junk and outside food include plenty of fluids like coconut water and fruits in your diet. Take care.
