I don't feel hungry anymore since having my son last Friday... I will get a thought that something sounds good but it quickly passes... I pump so I feel lil i'm not getting enough for my supply to be healthy... I eat once a day if force myself... I do crave junk like chips and cookies... but I dont want a meal... is this normal?

Yeah, I haven't had an appetite since having my daughter 3 weeks ago, either. I have to force myself to eat, especially because I'm EBF and I don't want to lose my supply. It might have something to do with hormones.

Yeah. It started immediately after birth for me. I didn't eat anything at all in the hospital for the three days I was there except for a couple of granola bars. 3 weeks later, I'm still having issues. Hoping it comes back soon... I love food and hate having to force feed myself!

I was hungry after having him... actually I went in for my induction hungry because the night before I was a nervous wreck and my stomach was a flop...all I had eaten was a meat ball lol.. and a salad... so I was starving while in labor... we got anything we wanted off the menu as long as they were open.. I ate while in there, but as soon as I got home.. I haven't been able to eat much... I crave dorito chips... and snack cakes... and cookies... nothing more... it's all I can eat without forcing myself...

I thought maybe my stomach was out of line... or something... like my intestines moving or something.... I had stomach cramps a few times.. mild ones, so I took my ibs meds for that... finally had the runs... but it didn't help much..with eating.
