I have lost close to 10kg during this pregnancy

Hello,
Im 31 weeks pregnant and since the begining i have been losing weight all up now i have lost close to 10kg. I have not had the best pregnancy i have had morning sickness the entire way and now have gestational diabetes. My obsterician does not seemed concerned at all, but im worried its not normal. Im generally able to keep lunch and dinner down just vomiting in the mornings and feeling horrible all day.
Should i be concerned?
Thanks
Ally

Answer: Hi Ally, If you were a little overweight before you fell pregnant then this can sometimes happen and the baby still has enough stores for itself during pregnancy. Your carer will be able to check if the baby is growing as expected. Best wishes, Alex
