About this symptom

Increased Appetite

Throughout pregnancy a woman’s appetite may fluctuate dramatically, and while it is typical to experience nausea and a decreased appetite in the early stages, increased appetite can also be normal. Women typically experience an increase in appetite in the second trimester, but women who do not have nausea or morning sickness often have an increase in appetite earlier on as more nutrients are needed not only for the growing baby but also to support the mother’s increased blood volume and body processes that occur during pregnancy.
