  • I lost 25lbs in one of my pregnancies and delivered a healthy over 6lb baby.

  • It really depends at what weight you are starting out at.

  • Not sure how much you weighed to begin with, but I would think if the baby is developing the way it should it would be ok. I would def bring it up at the next appointment though.

  • I think that you should speak to your dr about it to make sure that is ok for your body and the baby.

  • If your Dr says you are fine. Then don't worry about it. I had a friend that losses 40lb with her pregnancy's. There was never anything wrong with the baby's. Every one is different. If you are worried about it. Then talk to your Dr/OB/Midwife about it.
