loosing weight while pregnant.

I am about 12 weeks pregnant. I weighed at 186 on my first visit. I told my doctor that I am constantly throwing up and with diarrhea. They did not prescribe me nothing. I am still throwing up like 10-12 times a day. I weighed myself yesterday and I lost 7 lbs. Should I be concerned or maybe the baby will fill in the fat. I am overweight for my height. But I will find out from my doc next week. Any suggestions. I've tried Emetrol, mints, sea bands. Nothing!

  • The stuff you put on your wrist? What is that? I have the sea bands? It doesn't work for me.

  • It's normal.. ALOT of women lose weight in the beginning, it's nothing to worry about until you start losing a pound a day or something like that. Your baby isn't being deprived or nutrients right now, because you are not keeping alot of things down.

  • If you are overweight you don't ant to gain more than 15 pounds during your pregnancy- loosing weight is okay- BUT your DR can prescribe something for the thowing up- DO NOT pepto though.

  • I literally had pains in my stomach today from being so hungry. I was able to eat 2 blueberry pastry strudels, the frozen ones but my stomach hurts a little.

  • I also always lose weight in the first trimester. My doctor told me just to be careful and it is fine as long as you don't lose 10% of your body weight. So that would be about 18-19 lbs for you. Since you're out of the first trimester you'll *hopefully* be feeling better soon and be able to put back on the weight. If you are just too sick to handle life (that's a lot to throw up in one day) call him and ask if you can be put on anti-nausea medication. GL!

  • This isn't all that unusual. I'm sure you doctor will keep a close watch on it. I hope you start feeling better soon.
