Re: Exessive Weight Loss Post Pregnancy
this same thing occured after the birth of my first son,it was over a longer period of time tho, but i hit a point where that extra wieght just started to come off all by itself. it really was shocking since i always was the heavier one in my family. my OB,after doing many different types of tests simply told me that my metabolism had sped up. all the big hormonal changes that take place during pregnancy along with the trauma of just giving birth can create some really strange reactions post birth. i too thought i was really sick just becasue i had never ever been that skinny in my life,but i was just fine. if you are also taking inalot of caffiene that you were not before,it also can have an effect on metabolism too. you are probably also not doing a whole lot of just sitting down these days either?
unless you start showing some level of actual symptoms and have had testing done that would explain this,it could just be that change in your metabolism(along with the caffeine intake and being a 'mom") too. i would just go with everything is okay til proven otherwise,as long as you have had the right testing done,ya know? if something else pops up or other symptoms develop,then i would get back to the doc,but as long as things appear okay in every other way,i would simply enjoy that new baby. just some thoughts. **
