  • I lost 12 lbs and didn't actually "gain" weight till I was well past 6 mos, and only gained 9 lbs total and had a healthy 7lb 9oz baby

  • Probably not. What trimester are you in? Do you have morning sickness? Are you able to eat much? My first trimester I hardly had an appetitie, so I probably lost a few lbs (I know I didn't gain). 3rd trimester is when I really started gaining weight.

  • The first trimester you might be having morning sickness, and you might not want to eat ! The second trimester, if your still not eating, you might need to see a doc. But wait till then and see what happens, you'll be hungry alright. =)

  • it depends on why you lost weight.. I would discuss your situation with your doctor.
