Very Very Very Worried, or should I be?

So i JUST got back from the OBGYN and they said I had lost weight, i lost about 4pounds in 2 weeks...Also i had to get a papsmear done and the OB had to check my blood cells because i had a "Mild change" in my blood cells.

I get my ultra sound November 19th for the Gender, should I be worried that my baby could possibly be harmed by me losing weight ... 4pounds in 2 weeks?

  • no i woulnt be worried.... I have lost 20 pounds in 6 weeks and we have had an ultrasound and the baby looks great.. ask for some anti nausea medicine to help get an appitite. the babys needs are small right now and he or she will pull nutrients from you. important thing is to stay hydrated....good luck

  • no, a lot of people lose weight in the beginning or pregnancy, as long as you and the baby are healthy, its okay. Your doctor will let you know if it was not good, and would probably have you see a nutritionist. I'm sure you are okay.

  • Babies are basically lovable little parasites. They will feed off you to get what they need. You rbody will sacrifice itself for the health of your child. So really yourbaby should be fine. Like the first reply said, it is pretty common for women to lose some weight in the first trimester, what with morning sickness and all.

  • I lost around 12 pounds by the time I was 6 weeks. I wish I could lost that now! I wouldn't worry.

  • I lost ten pounds with my first don't worry! My doctor just told me to make sure that I was eating enough! (which I was) I think it was because I couldn't eat a big meal I ate a lot of smaller ones!
