Losing weight

Hey yall, I've lost about 10 pounds in 2 days and I'm 5 weeks pregnant. I haven't been eating much because I'm so worried about what's good and bad for the baby. I have awful anxiety and depression so I over think and worry about everything . I haven't been taking my anxiety medicine due to risks of harming the baby and I think that's why I can't eat and am losing weight so fast. Is this dangerous or will it get better with time ? I've also somehow got insomnia within the last few nights and sleep is nearly impossible . Is it from being excited and overwhelmed ? Any advice would be great, thanks (:

I agree ^ that's s lot of weight in a couple of days. I lost weight my first trimester due to depression and nausea but nothing that drastic sooo soon. Eventually you will gain weight without even knowing trust me lol but I'd still talk to your doctor :)

10 lbs in 2 days is a dramatic weight loss and you should consilt with ur doctor about taking a safe medication for ur anxiety. Its okay to lose some weight but its important to still be healthy.
