Losing weight?

With all my pregnancies, I have lost some weight during the first trimester. I just weighed myself and I have lost 10 lbs already :eek: I knew I would jinx myself by saying "oh, i never get sick" because I have been sick as a dog all day every day for almost a week now. I feel bad Sad I know my baby is getting what s/he needs from me, but I know I am not taking care of myself like I should. How can I MAKE myself eat? Any other time (when I'm NOT pregnant) I'd be stoked about losing the weight, but I just want baby and I to be healthy....

That was me with my first. It is so hard to eat when you really don't want to. Sorry I don't have good advice, I can sympathize though.

Ugh. Im pretty much the same weight i started at, fluxuating by a lb or two. But Ive been very nauseous too, so eating doesnt appeal to me. I'm sure it will get better.

I feel yah! I've already lost 5 lbs in the last 8 days, but thankfully I have no nausea.

Heidi-feel better and just force crackers and veggies down. You got this!!

My o.b. says don't worry about it too much. You can eat to make up for it later. Unless you're losing so much that it's unhealthy for YOU, of course!

:lurk:
I lost weight and had no appetite in my first trimester with my daughter. After loosing a bit of weight the doctor had me start drinking Ensure. It made me feel better about being sure my baby was getting what she needed. You could try that if you could keep it down.

I had to drink ensure when i was pregnant with my twins! Right now, that does not sound good...maybe if it was really, really cold. I may have to! Thanks for the reminder Smile

Me too! Today was the first day I actually threw up...God I am miserable. I am sick all day long and at night. I have lost three pounds, but that could just be water weight...I had to make myself eat lunch today. My husband was dying for some Chinese so I decided noodles might be safe. The smell from the food in the car got to me and then it was just sooo greasy. YUCK. I probably only ate 1/4 of it. According to an old legend, that means we are having a girls....

Also...Have you tried taking half a Unisom before bed? Zofran did nothing for me, but Unisom took me from throwing up 8+ times to very seldom... Might be worth a try?
