    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I'm 5 weeks pregnant and have lost 8 lbs in two weeks. I'm not nausious or vomiting. I feel really full when I eat and can not eat but a little food at one time. Is this normal?

    Yep, normal. Even though you don't feel nauseous and are not vomiting, your hormones are affecting your appetite. Don't worry, your baby will take what nutrients it needs from you and will be fine.

    While I agree that the growing fetus will utilize nutrients as the pregnancy progresses - I would keep a careful watch on your weight gain/weight loss. If you see a continuing trend towards significant loss or gain - wit would be prudent to check in with your OB/Midwife to be sure that all is on track.

    My very best,
