Vomiting while pregnant
I am 16 weeks pregnant, and have been bulimic for over 10 years. I am finding it very difficult to stop purging completely and presently do it about twice a day. What harm could this do to my baby? I need to be scared into stopping completely!

It could cause the baby to be inadequately nourished and not grow properly. It is important to stop.
