27 weekspreg - lost weight during sick period

Hi gynaedoc,

I got food poisoning about 3 weeks ago, and it took a long time for my digestive system to recover - still have a little bit of a runny tummy but its slowly coming right now with medication...my question is - I was about 52kg before I got pregnant, and at 24-25 weeks was about 60kg, after being sick I am now sitting at 58kg at 27 weeks - will this wieght drop threaten my baby? What should I be weighing? Should I be concerned?

Many Thanks
Mommytobe
