my baby is growing just fine according to the doctor but im wondering: is my constant weight loss going to cause problems later in the pregnancy? i was quite overweight before i got pregnant (almost 250 pounds) but im still a bit worried. the past two weeks combined ive lost about 8 or 9 pounds.

I would say that if you don't feel comfertable with your ob's advice, I would have to say go get a second opinion. If the next doctor says it's normal you should be fine. Although for your own peice of mind I would also suggest seeing a nutritionist and get some blood work done.

no i dont really have any of those problems. he doesnt seem worried but i still am freaking out because before i got pregnant i tried so hard to lose weight and couldnt even drop a couple pounds and now i cant stop. and i cant really exercise cuz i have a high risk pregnancy. with my first baby i gained 65 pounds so im not sure whats happening this time

Do you have hyperemisis? (Continuous vomiting) Are you exercising more? Are you stressed? All of these could cause you to lose weight during pregnancy. I would mention it to your doctor, and see what he/ she has to say.
