About this symptom

Decreased Appetite

The dramatic increase in hormone levels will cause all sorts of gastrointestinal symptoms including gas, bloating, constipation and nausea. All of these can cause a decrease in your desire to eat. Adequate intake of nutrients is key during pregnancy, try eating smaller meals more often during the day. This will allow your body to deal with smaller amounts of food and hopefully relieve some of your discomforts. Be sure to drink plenty of water as well.
