  • Well if your doctors aren't concerened then no need for you to be! I know that it can be normal for women to lose weight during their pregnancies.. So as long as everything is fine, then no need to worry! GL!

  • I wouldn't say it's normal ...but if your dr isn't concerned about it I wouldn't be too worried.
