My LMP was 2/25 so I guess I'm about 4 or 5 weeks pregnant. I don't have too many symptoms, just slightly sore nipples and very mild occasional nausea.
I'm a little concerned that I've lost a few pounds. Is that harmful to the baby this early on?
I take prenatal and folic acid supplemnts. I also try to eat healthy food like orange juice, string cheese and watermellon, and nuts. The problem is that prior to this pregnancy, I had a bad diet with a lot of junk food and I've never liked healthy food. I'm finding that I don't really like healthy foods so much so I don't overeat ever (probably under eat). Now that I've cut out most the candy and junk, I seem to be losing weight.
Is it better to eat junk (in addition to healthy foods) to maintain or gain weight, or to only eat healthy foods and lose a small amount of weight?
This probably seems like a silly question, but I just can't seem to eat enough healthy food to maintain or gain weight. (I've probably lost 3 to 5 pounds in the last couple of weeks).
I wouldn't worry about a few pounds as long as you are eating. I changed the way I was eating when I became pregnant and didn't gain any weight in the first tri. I am 34wks and have gained somewhere around 10lbs I think. I was over weight to begin with though.
i havent gained any weight yet and am just starting to eat better and im in my 16th wk i believe, im due nov 27.. i did loose weight between checkups and then go back up and then back down. but they dont seem to be too concerned...
