    Default Curious...."Long term morning sickness = lower birth weight babes?

    What are your thoughts? Is this a logical conclusion?

    If you suffer morning sickness for the majority of your pregnancy (past 20 weeks) will you have a lower birth weight baby?

    Pretty logical to me. Dd was 5pd12 after me having morning sickness pretty much the whole time.

    This time the midwife booked me in ASAP with an ob, after having a baby with slow growth, coupled with loosing 10kg so far this time (and I was already consdidered slightly underweight) as they are worried about the effects on this babies size.



    Eta- I'm 15 weeks so far.

    Im not sure if this is how it works. I am 18 weeks, still sick most days, some days it goes all day and I can't keep anything down.
    My last scan at 12 wks bub was measuring 13 weeks in size. I have a scam tomorrow and ob next week, will ask then and get back to you!
    It does mean i have a little baby belly and have not put on any weight yet

    Interesting, I had ms for the majority of DD's pregnancy and she was 7lb7oz, normal amount of ms with DS1 and DS2 and they were 8lb3oz and 9lb6oz. My placenta function was fine on 2 occasions it was looked and it was 'big beautiful and perfect' according to the head of midwifery at the hospital.

    I think that it can be possible. I lost a lot of weight in pregnancy and I remember the doctor saying it was a concern. I had terrible morning sickness in both pregnancies. In my first pregnancy
    I was already very thin and I had a smaller and pre term baby.. they suggested it was due to how unwell I was. In my second pregnancy I luckily had some extra fat on me so I think the baby survived off that and was bigger.

    I couldn't eat pretty much my entire pregnancy, right up till DS was born at 36 weeks. I lived on chocolate milk. In the last couple of weeks it was a bit better but not significantly so. He was 6pd7 at 36 weeks, placenta and cord were functioning very well! My ob said he would have been 9pd if I went full term!

    I was sick every single day i was pregnant with DS and he was born 9 pounds 1 ounce. I was 10kg lighter than pre pregnancy weight when DS was born.
    He sucked every bit of goodness out of me!!

    Hmm interesting. I threw up at least 10 times everyday for the first 20 weeks of this pregnancy & then every morning for another 5 weeks, i lost 6kgs in the first trimester but bubs has measured 3 weeks ahead constantly since our 12w scan. We have been told to expect it to be 10 pounds so will be very interesting to see the birth weight.

    I threw up for 35 weeks and DD was 8'2. From about 25 weeks on my OB kept telling me how "massive" she was going to be. Thankfully not massive

    It wasn't the case for me. I was sick and vomiting until the day she was born and DD was 7lb5 and born at 38 weeks.
