Slimming pills and pregnancy

I've been taking slimmings pills for the past few months and only recently discovered that I'm 6 weeks pregnant. I've stop taking the pills. I'm now having stomach cramps and wondering is my baby safe?

Dear Mikaela
As I am the Diet Expert, I would urge you to also ask Gynae Doc on this Website if your baby is safe. Slimming pills can cause a whole host of negative side-effects, but I have not yet read that they can endanger a pregnancy, but this is possible if the pills caused severe diarrhoea. Whatever you do, go and see the dr who is supervising your pregnancy immediately so that he/she can check to see if all is well.

Which slimming tablets did you use M? I saw that on nearly all the over the counter tabs it's said NOT to use them when preggies. Perhaps you should go see your geanie to see if the baby's ok.
