  • Yep with most of mine i have had horrible morning sickness (yeah right all day sickness) and lost at least 10 pounds to start. With my 4th one I only gained 12 pounds including the 10 I lost to begin with. My daughter was still 8 lbs. 3oz. So things worked out just fine. Don't worry too much about it. As long as things seem ok the doctor won't question you too much. Also just so no one asks, no I am not overweight to begin with so that isn't why my doctor didn't worry. I am 5-9 and prepregnancy with her was 150lbs.

  • I lost 40 pounds, my son was born three weeks early he was over 8 pounds, I can't figure it out either.

  • The 1st few months is tricky because of the morning sickness. You shouldn't be trying to lose weight but sometimes it happens.

  • I lost a total of close to 50 lbs but I gained alot of that back, I lost some first to morning sickness and the flu at 4 wks and then i had gallstones and tried to make ti through the pregnancy, but ended up having to have my gallbladder removed at 18 wks.

    I gained it all but 20 lbs back in the end. so after I had my son i weighed less then when i conceived..not a bad deal lol
