I'm currently about 14 weeks pregnant with number five. In the past I typically drop about 10 pounds between weeks 6-12, due to morning sickness. After that I have never continued to lose weight.
I have had horrible morning sickness with this pregnancy and I am beginning to question my doctor. Since week six I have not been able to eat or drink much at all. I have now last over 30 pounds in about 7 weeks. He said the weight loss wasn't a huge deal in the 1st trimester because the baby didn't require much and I have a few things that I can keep down.
My diet is literally an Activia yogurt in the morning, 70 calories.
Lunch is a small cup of dry Cheerios, about 140 calories.
Dinner is the worst time of day for me. Sometimes I can keep a small portion of something I made down, but no meat. Usually it is a baked potato for dinner.
Liquids are hit and miss. I can at times keep sparkling water, 7 up, Gnger ale, or sprite down. But I never know for sure. I keep pushing water thinking something has to make it through.
I stay dehydrated and I am now getting extremely fatigued and cranky. I even have blurred vision and feel like I am going to pass out from time to time.
I don't think my doc is taking me seriously because I'm very good at pushing myself and staying positive. But I am at the end of my rope and my willpower is wearing off.
I have tried researching this on my own but I can't find definite answers. How much weight is safe to lose? Is it safe to still be losing weight in the beginning of the 2nd trimester?
