    Call your doctor! Some weight loss isn't bad, but if you've lost 15 lbs you better talk to your doctor.

    did and they have known about my weight loss and did nothing about it till wic got involved and since wic is concerned they are going to look into it... i already have an appointment on thurs i have an ultrasound tomorrow an im a lil freaked.. but thank you so much for your input im nervous and its good to get others out look on it
    beckie_33 replied to s2bmama's response:
    I'm surprised that your doctor wasn't concerned about 15 lbs of weight loss.

    I'm glad WIC got involved so you can find out what is going on. You might want to change to a doctor that will take you more seriously.
