With my last baby I did the same thing. At first it was because I couldn't eat because I was so sick. Then by the time I could I just didn't want to so I didn't. When she was born she only weighed 5lbs 2oz. I felt so bad because she had alot of trouble and stayed in the ICU for 4 days. I'm not saying it was because I didn't eat that she had health problems but her low birth weight was definitely from not eating. I would try to eat more often and less at a time. Like trying 4 meals throughout the day with half what you usually eat. Maybe once your body is used to eating more often then you can increase the amount at each meal.
You deff should eat as much as you can, your baby needs to grow and be healthy. If you dont feel well they say to eat 6 small meals a day , dont stuff youself but make sure you eat enought for you and the baby.
try ensure that way u have the calorie intake and then u dont have to eat more than u already
