Weight loss during pregnancy...
Thu, 09-13-2012 - 1:54pm

Since week 4 of my pregnancy I have been EXTREMELY sick. I even had to spend 48 hours in the hospital for extreme dehydration (I couldn't even produce tears I was so dehydrated). I have been keeping track of my weight once a week, and since finding out I was expecting, I have lost a total of 33 lbs. If I wasn't pregnant, I would be extremely thrilled, because I can certainly afford to lose the weight (I'm a big woman, and tried basically everything previously to lose weight and lost nothing) but now that I'm pregnant I'm rather concerned.

Has anyone else experienced any type of extreme weight loss?

Hi there. 

Yes I know exactly what you mean. I'm not sure what i lost in pounds. But I lost 8 kgs. I think that is about 18 pounds. And I am only a medium sized girl...I really don't have much to loose. I usually loose 8-10 kgs with my pregnancies as i suffer from HG each time. It's not fun, but as long as it's medically managed, you and more impostantly, bub will be fine. 

Hope it eases for you soon.
