  • In the first trimester it is really normal to lose weight due to you body getting used to everything. If you are overweight you may not gain at all and that has been proven safe if not better for the mother. DOn't worry it is a ok.

  • That doesn't sound right to me. I'd talk to your doctor.

  • Talk to your doc, but I wouldn't worry about it. I lost about 10 lbs in the first 10 weeks. Doc wasn't worried about it all. He told me he was monitoring but that since baby was growing fine he wasn't worried. Now I'm 25 weeks and have gained only 15 lbs total. As long as your baby's ok and you're eating healthfully I wouldn't worry.

  • most women lose in the start from throwing up other times it's just your body working in over drive that will cause it by the end of your first you will start to gain a lb or two most of the weight on baby is put on in the last 10 wks just dont forget to eat and eat healthy
