sudden weight loss during last month Lock Rss


this questions sounds really stupid but ive been stressing abit so i thought id ask.

throughout my pregnancy i went from a starting weight of 68kgs and then in the first few months i dropped to 62kgs. i then gradually went up to 75kgs. i was sitting on 75kgs for afew weeks then at 35 weeks i became really sick with the flu and have since lost 8kgs. i am now 37 weeks and have gotten over the flu but i am still losing weight not gaining. i am worried if this sudden weight loss would have affected my baby. i am eating healthy (and lots!) but i still cant stop losing weight.

thanks Tam
Hi Tam,
It is common to lose weight later in pregnancy and if you have been sick this could make it more pronounced. You need to be checked regularly by your carers and to maintain a healthy diet.
