  • If you have morning sickness, then I would say it is normal. Generally you only need to be concerned if you started out your pregnancy skinny! I have the opposite problem and am overweight. I have lost weight with each of my kids! (I joke that pregnancy is my weight loss program!)

  • I think I have lost 5 pounds this time (so far). My goal is to keep the weight I started my pregnancy at. I know I will gain some later in the pregnancy! If I maintain my weight I should be 20 pounds later after the baby is born.

  • your metabolism kicks into high gear when you get pregnant in the first trimester so it's normal you will gain more later on..im 24wks and i have lost 8lbs and havent gained any so far but im 2 weeks ahead of schedual so im doing something right. but i wouldnt be worried you will be fine and so will the baby :) congrats!

  • Don't let it worry you! Your doctor will let you know IF there is a problem, but there probably isn't.

  • I lost 15 lbs in the 1st trimester. You're probably not eating as much due to being sick. I never really got the actual throwing up part, but I could barely eat. If you are concerned though, it doesn't hurt to just ask your doctor. It will ease your mind

  • i'm overweight and i lost weight with both of my pregnancies.
    with my daughter i was sick every day, multiple times a day and i lost about 28lbs. with my son i wasn't as sick but i started eating a high protein, low carb diet when i found out i was pregnant with him and i ended up losing just over 30lbs. during the course of his pregnancy.
