  • it happens, your body is changing, if you are sick at all that could be a cause, how much is a little? I know I lost weight in the beginning from being so sick but packed it right back on lol!! just keep an eye on it and make sure your dr isn't concerned

  • It's fine. At 8 weeks, the baby weighs so little that it shouldn't affect your weight at all and if you are eating healthier, it just makes sense that it would drop a little.
