overweight and want to lose it while pregnant

Ive been losing weight for the last 8 weeks. Im down 8kg and wondering if its ok to continue to do this as I just found out im 5 weeks 5 days pregnant. I still need to lose 40kg. I haven't been dieting just been eating healthy. Not having fizzy drink or fast food. Just fruits veggies and water. Is it ok to continue to lose weight?

Your doc will let you know if you're losing too much.
No harm in eating healthy!

As long as you're eating healthy, I don't see a problem with it. I'm 31 weeks losing weight just by walking and my doc isn't concerned.
