  • Without knowing your bmi to begin with it is hard to say. People who are overweight when they get pregnant it is not uncommon for them to loose weight or not gain when they are pregnant. If you were underweight then it might be reason to be concerned. Really only a doctor can tell you. 3 lbs probably isn't a big deal especially in the course of a month. but better to check and be safe.

  • I lost weight with my pregnancy, doctor said it was normal...his heart beat was strong and he was growing according to ultrasounds and measuring, it was just me loosing weight (but not on purpose).

  • I am overweight to start with and when I was pregnant with DD I had her at 20 lbs less than when I got pregnant. She was healthy, so was I, and everything was fine. I'm 13 weeks now with number two.. and have lost 10 lbs so far.. dr. doesn't seem to be concerned.

  • I lost about 7 lbs when I was pregnant. Doctor wasn't worried because baby was healthy and growing on "schedule".

  • It happens. Just make sure you are eating the best you can and dont worry so much about weight gain/loss.

  • I have lost 12 pounds and I will be 12 weeks tomorrow. The doctor said everything was ok, but still worry. Alot of people have told me they have lost weight too during pregnancy.
