Hi, i found out 5 weeks ago that i was pregnant. Due to morning sickness and a stressful home life in the week after finding out i lost 7lbs very quickly. I put 5lbs back on whilst on a holiday but i am now 10 weeks pregnant, eating healthily, 3 meals a day with healthy snacks in between (the odd bag of crisps or chocolate bar) and i am now 8lbs lighter than when i found out i was pregnant.
Could this be healthy weight loss due to healthy eating as i am a bit overweight anyways, or is it unhealthy for the baby as i know in pregnancy your meant to gain weight?!
I lost 14 lbs overall during my third pregnancy. It was due to horrendous morning sickness initially, but I was also very overweight to begin with. So long as your doctors are keeping an eye on you, and the baby is growing well, I don't think you should be too concerned. I ended up with a very healthy 8 pound baby boy after 40 weeks of a fairly routine pregnancy. Oh, and yeah, I pretty much gained all of the 14 lbs back. So, now I'm here on MedHelp looking for advice on how to lose weight for good! :)
