Brief Answer:
Thank you for your query.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.

There are no direct medications to increase appetite but you should correct what you have lost in pregnancy.

This includes taking iron and multivitamin tablets as these are the common problems in pregnancy.

Also you should eat what you like at least in small frequent amounts.

Please do not take any appetite increasing drugs as they cause harm over the long term.



Feel free to consult me directly

Brief Answer:
Your baby will not be affected as long as you feed

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXX,

Your baby will not be affected as long as you feed her timely.

I will advice you to get a hemoglobin test repeated as you are sounding like someone with low blood.
