Ok ladies, if you have a lack of appetite and perhaps some anxiety, GET YOUR THYROID CHECKED!! I went to the doctor and told her I had no appetite and sure enough, my thyroid is outta wack. To make it worse, if you have a thyroid problem and it doesn't get treated, you can get to the point where you regain your appetite but then you start gaining weight and can't lose it. Go get checked before this happens to you because we all know that after having a baby, the last thing you wanna do is gain more weight.

My daughter is 8 weeks old and since I've had her I've had no appetite either. She's on formula so its not affecting her but I can go all day without eating anything and feel full all day with it not bothering me. When I wake up in the morning I'll be slightly hungry but by 5 minutes its completely gone. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who has a loss of appetite since delivery, but wish I knew when/if it will go away and the reason for it.

Quoting Jacobs Mommy.:" I was that way too, and i asked my doctor about it, and he said it was because i had a c-section and ... [snip!] ... 4 weeks PP and thats when it started to go away... I hope you all start eating soon lol i seriously missed not eating. lol"
I am 3 weeks PP and have been wondering the same. Not much if any appetite. Most times I dish my plate up and throw half if not more away. Im wondering if it's cuz I had a c-section and my insides are still in shock. Im not complaining though. Once the swelling and water retention went away I weighed 13 lbs less than my pre-pregnancy weight. Though I'd like to loose another 70 lbs.

I'm 4 days PP and i'm the same way.... I'm thirsty but not hungry much... and if something sounds good that feeling last a few seconds and then I feel sad because I can't figure out what to make for dinner, because I don't want anything...
