  • I have read in many books that it is normal to not gain or to eveb lose weight since you are sick in the beginning. If you are uncomfortable with the way your doctor was towards you I would search or another doctor.

  • Sometimes you lose then gain weight.

  • It can go either way. Usually you gain, but if you are sick/vomiting a lot, you more than likely lose.

  • With my son I lost even though I ate like a pig and with my daughter I gained even though I wasn't very hungry.

  • I gained a lot of weight at first, that was the first sign I was pregnant. Now I'm barely gaining anything and I am 25 weeks pregnant. I think it is different from woman to woman. Just try to eat healthy. Good luck!
