  • I weighed 115 pounds and at 2 months prego I was down to 106. The doctor wasnt worried. Like you I had to make myself eat. What I did was bought carnation instant breakfast. You add a packet to milk its loaded with vitamins.

  • until you hit your second trimester the docs usually arent worried. make sure you're taking your prenatal and trying to eat when you have the urge. I've lost 20lbs and I'm 20weeks with number two. my socs arent worried because the baby is growing just fine and Im taking my prenatals. Your body will regulate itself!

  • I went to mexico when I was 8 weeks pregnant and got sick and couldnt eat anything I ended up losing 25lbs and the doctor wasn't concerned because she knew I'd gain it back in the months to come
