  • yeah that doesnt sound good at all hun. thats 32 pounds you've lost and that can hurt the babies growth. go to the doc asap.

  • were you overweight to begin with, and have you changed your eating habits once you found out you were pregnant? are you having a lot of morning sickness?
    you can call you doc, rather than going in, they can decide weather or not an earlier appointment is needed.
    Congrats on your pregnancy!
