  • It depends. It's normal for some, but it's not normal for others.

  • if you are still eatting healthy, taking your supplements and so on and you're losing weight it is ok.. I actually lost like 20 lbs at the beginning of my pregnancy. I guess it depends on the person, if you're a bigger girl then some doctors tell you to lose weight.. if youre small, talk to your dr

  • I gained with my first two pregnancies and lost with my last. It can be normal. I think after all was said and done, I gained 8 pounds with my son. So I left the hospital weighing less than when I got pregnant. I tried everything to gain, but nothing worked. He was 6 pounds 9 ounces.

  • i lost 16 lbs in the begining this time, and i am 28 weeks and still have 9 to gain back.
    it normal. not everyone has it, just like w morning sickness or any othr symptom. its all relative.

    if your doctor isnt worried, i wouldnt be either. (and mine was not due to sicness)
