As some of y'all know I've had issues with getting into a doctor and insurance ect. Finally have everything straightened out but it could be 8 weeks till everything goes through. Anyways...



The past few days I've had problems eating. I take a few bites feel overfill and nauseous. So I stop eating an hour later I am starving. So I eat a few more bites and repeat. Well I just weighed myself and I've lost 10 lbs in a week. I just feel lightheaded and blah lately. Any idea what this could be or if its worth an er trip?

I think if you cant keep any water down, you need to go in. I mean the baby doesnt really eat what you eat, it gets wht it needs from your blood. Maybe try to find anything you can keep down?

That's how I was for awhile. I'd take a few bites every half hour. It sucked. I and to carry snacks everywhere.

That's what I've been doing. How much weight loss is okay though?

i had the same issues...Insurance and getting into a dr and the issues with food too!! Im not 36 weeks and everything is fine :) Just keep drinking and eating what you can! even if you can only eat a few bites here and there...you can also try Simalc for moms...its like a boot shake kind of thing...helps with the nausea and gives you nutrients you need :) Hang in there Mama

Yea I eat 3 bits orange sandwich and feel like I've ate 4 plates of Thanksgiving dinner. Lol. I'm still eating a ton of food though. Which is why I am worried about the weight loss. I'm too far along for all this crap.

Well if you're not vomiting it's probably fine. Just try I eat healthy and take your prenatals. Your scale could be wrong too. Mine goes haywire some days.

i lost 4o pounds from hyperemesis... but it was vomiting food and water wouldnt stay down. if your losing 10 pounds a week w o vomiting you should def go to the er... thats worse than losing weight via vomiting!!!

if youre not throwing it up i wouldnt worry too much about it...with eating little bits of food more often your metabolism is changing and that could be a big reason youre losing weight...it all depends on how much you weighed pre pregnancy as well...im not a little woman so me losing weight was expected...ive gained 8lbs over all
