Scared

I'm currently 17 weeks pregnant and I'm afraid my baby might not be growing properly. I eat like I'm suppose to but I've been sick everyday and vomiting. I haven't gained weight yet instead I'm losing weight (by the way I'm a plus size woman). Does anyone else have this problem?

I was so sick the first trimester. I threw up every day and I lost weight. I think I lost 10-15lbs. I am also a plus size women. I just had my baby 2 weeks ago and he was very healthy. I also lost weight in the last month of pregnancy.

With my last pregnancy I steady lost weight the entire time, didn't gain a thing. I too am plus size so it was a bit refreshing. My daughter  was born over 7# and just as healthy as could be!

I do! 24 weeks and have lost 20 lbs. I'm sick throughout my pregnancies though. Both boys. Maybe if I ever have a girl I won't be sick! Hopeful. But as long as your doctor isn't worried don't worry. My husband is worried for the both of us. Lol. My doctor said I'm losing the baby is gaining it's all good.

Yeah I've lost weight too. Since we are over weight they say it's alright if we lose weight. Not hurting the baby at all and is good for us.

I lost weight too- no sickness at all... But started to gain finally after 20 weeks. Don't think to eat bad to gain. Keep eating healthy and walking :) because all the weight really starts coming third tri

with my first pregnancy I lost 15 pounds and only gained 16 back by the time I delivered. I had a perfectly healthy baby girl. This time I lost 9 lbs in the first trimester and have only gained 10 so far and I'm 32 weeks. As long as when you go in for your ultrasound the baby is growing properly they are usually fine with it. Don't stress too much! And good luck!!!
