Weight loss and bad bruising in the 1st trimester.

This is my 2nd pregnancy and i was wondering if anyone else experienced weight loss and VERY bad bruising in the beginning of pregnancy. Its happened both times...nausea having nothing to do with the weight loss because i wasnt nauseous at first...NOW i am! lol. But was eating really well at the time and losing...not to mention the disgusting bruises for the slightest tap. Just wondering if anyone else has seen or heard of this? Thanx

  • Ask if they checked your thyroid. That can effect weight and bruising sometimes.
