Weight loss during pregnancy

I haven't ventured to a new board yet, a bit partial to this group still.  I'm 7 weeks pregnant and having a really rough pregnancy so far.  I had been back and forth with GI specialist prior to getting pregnant, and they believe I am having bile duct issues associated with previously having my gallbladder removed.  I am pain constantly and having a hard time eating.  Not much much can be done, but I'm really concerned about the weight loss. I'm down to 114, which I'm 5'1 so not horrible yet, but I feel so guilty to lose annoying right now.  I lost about 10lb In a week.  Just wondering if anyone had similar issues on your prior pregnancy?  I am taking prenatal vitamins, and trying to eat small meals frequently, but nothing seems to help.  The GI doctor said they may end up having to place a no feeding tube as worse case, but really hope it gets better.  I am really having a hard time, and I know the stress and guilt just makes it worse.  I feel horrible that I am pregnant, it took us so long last time, so this was a surprise.  I so wish I could have had surgery before being pregnant.  Anyway, guess this became a vent, but any advice appreciated.

Re: Weight loss during pregnancy

  • Thank you so much for this reply.  It is so encouraging in terms of knowing that your son is healthy.  I know we are blessed in so many ways, I just want to be a good incubator until our LO arrives.
