I just ate a little can of vienna sausages (BARF) and am feeling the same way. I thought it was my body transitioning out of the morning sickness but if you’re feeling it too then maybe not. Could it be the increased pressure of gas? I know I’ve been pretty gurgly and gassy lately.

I have. It started around week 14-15 for me, and has lasted the rest of my pregnancy. I have to eat very small portions all day long. It works, but if you start eating smaller amounts more frequently, make sure you’re still watching your daily calories, etc… White carbs sat best for me, but eating them all day long made me gain weight too quickly, so I had to start tracking what I was eating and switching in whole grains, proteins, fruits and veggies whenever I could stomach them.

I think this is pretty normal!  Just try to find ways to eat smaller meals.

I have, and it made me REALLY sick yesterday.  Like @mrstilly: said, eat smaller and more frequent meals.  I know the meals I was eating were smaller than normal, but I needed to go even smaller.  It became an issue a few weeks ago, but now its a definite problem at 23 weeks.  Just part of a squished stomach 🙂

Yup, this exact same thing started happening to me right around seven weeks.  So I’m trying to eat more frequent, smaller meals.  Or basically, just snacking all day long!

Like everyone else said, eat smaller meals more frequently. Honestly, I don’t really eat meals as much as I have constant healthy snacks. It really helps a lot. Also, I don’t drink a lot of fluids when I eat, but try to drink water constantly throughout the day.

Maybe like other posters said – it’s not how MUCH you’re eating as it is WHAT your eating. Your whole digestive system slows down when you’re pregnant, don’t make it work any harder, stick to things that are easier for your body to digest.
