My doctor would say that it's normal. I've lost 22lbs since becoming pregnant, my doctor is only concerned about how rapid the weight loss is.

That'll happen on a liquid diet!

yeah it will! He even said if I was losing weight at a slower rate he wouldn't think twice about it. He's not all that concerned right now because the baby will take whatever it needs from me.



If I do gain weight this pregnancy I think it'll only be 10lbs max. With my daughter I gained too much weight

Oh my gosh, I have never had so many different cravings in such a short amount of time!!! Odd cravings too, I feel like Im all over the map! Starting last night I suddenly started craving tomato, mayonaise sandwich. Whatever that is. Then suddenly wanted pickles. Today I have went from craving coconut, to chili, to buffalo wings. I haven't eaten any of these things but cravings just jumping from one extreme to the next. Anyone else having crazy cravings?

You may be suprised, once you can start gaining weight again after what is essentially a starvation diet, your body tends to try and get back to even really hard. I had a hemorrhoidectomy back in July and when I initially had it done I was over my usual weight (144) and was sitting at 156. I was only eating soft foods but I was eating. Then a few days later I hemorrhaged really badly (lost 2.5 litres in 20 min) and nearly died, afterward they found out the reason was I wasn't clotting and told me it could happen again. Now that completely freaked me out and in order to avoid having anything at all go through my poop shoot and risk ripping anything open unnecessarily I basically quite eating from big time fear. I would only have juice or broth for 8 days and I ended loosing a lot and got down to 136 in a little over a week. it stayed off for the next two months because I wasn't eating a lot yet, but I did gain 6 lbs back and thought that would be all. But once I returned to a mostly average diet I just started packing on the pounds. I tried exercising, dieting, it didn't matter what I did, once my body started gaining it back it was like it wasn't going to let anything stop it from getting back to square one, I did eventually get right back to where I was despite my best effort to stop around my usual weight of 144. Not that I wish excessive weight loss or gain on anyone but I hope that you do start to get some of that back, I imagine it would make you feel better.

The ladies that are feeling movement: What does it feel like? This is my first pregnancy to make it to the second trimester and I have been feeling movement for about 2 weeks. I feel a brushing feeling pretty often (at least once every two days) but Ive recently started feeling kicks I think. Just soft quick jabs. But the brushing feeling is still more common. Is this how it feels for everyone?

I don't know if I'm feeling movement or not. I don't remember how it was in the beginning with my son. I SWEAR I keep feeling something but it's way too high up (or at least I think so?) It's like straight to the left of my belly button.

I would think that would be a little high but who knows. I can feel it consistantly around my pubic line and the past few days up in my belly about 4 inches below my belly button.
