Anybody else losing weight?

Ill be 7 weeks tomorrow and I've already lost 10 (yes TEN) pounds!!! What the heck?! I lost weight with my first but that's because I was hyperemesis This pregnancy has been MUCH easier (only threwup 3 times so far!). So why am I dropping weight?! Also, I'm thinking protien shakes might be a good idea at this point. I'm currently 103 so losing any more at this point cant be healthy... Anybody else having/had this problem? If so what did you do? Waiting on a referral from military insurance (takes forever) so I currently have no doc to call and since this isn't an emergency...

I have lost about 6lbs but I am technically obese so no issues. I was losing weight prior to conception on purpose. I have lost about 22lbs altogether since Christmas.

You can go see Family Practice for early prental care until your referral comes thru. We just left the military in July.

I would definitely talk to your doctor. What about those high calorie drinks like ensure?

Yeah, you need to see a Dr. 10lbs is a LOT of weight in such a short amount of time... and unless you are like 3ft tall, at 103 you really shouldn't be losing that much.

What does your ob/gyn or your PCM say? I think they should be able to help you out, at least do bloodwork to see if there is anything wrong. I know referrals take forever, we have Tricare too. Military moves SLOW!

I would definitely get in to see someone asap, even your PCM can help you. I'm losing weight but I'm technically obese like the previous poster. I lost weight the first 22 weeks with dd, so I think it's my normal. But I've only lost like 2% of my weight where as you've lost over 10%.

Re: Anybody else losing weight?

I lost 13lbs with my first, 8 with my second and 5 so far this time. My doctor never seemed concerned but it was over my entire first trimester and I was a little overweight to begin with. I think 10 lbs in such a short amount of time is alot and I would be concerned esp since your so tiny to begin with. The ensure drinks sound like a good idea if your having a hard time eating. Actually I think I'm gonna get me some...don't know why I didn't think of that sooner!
