Hi some of you know Im under alot of stress with my current pregnancy.  Im close to going into my 4th month and ive been losing weight fast.  I went down 10 poounds in a week.  Im wondering has this happened to anyone else and was the baby ok?  i just cant keep food down given i dont eat much because when i do it just comes up and im sick for a good few hours.  I cant keep water down lately.

With everyone of my pregnancies ive lost and only gained a couple (2-12) pounds in the last month all my babies have been healthy. They weighed 6/13, 8/9, 8/8. No need to worry if the doctor isnt. Good luck hun

It hasn't happened to me, but a good friend lost 20lbs during her pregnancy. She delivered a healthy baby girl in Jan.

Thats what I thought also but some women lose. Im currently 13 weeks and have lost 15 pounds already. I guess the good thing is your under your pre pregnancy weight after you have the baby lol

 I'm 26 weeks and down 4 total. I was overweight to start and my Dr is ok with the weight loss vs gain.

Droping 10lbs in a week in concerning. I'd call your Dr. With all the vomiting, you may have hyper emesis.

Please call your OB and discuss what is going on. S/he can help you evaluate your situation and decided if you should continue as you've been doing or change things. Losing that much weight might be good, but it might not be. Call first thing Monday morning.

Have you looked into meditation or prenatal yoga? That may help with the stress on you and the little one
