  • Nope not all are the perfect little basketball. You will gain weight. It's common to loose weight in the first trimester especially if you've been sick. Keep eating and see what happens next appt.

  • 16 weeks...I wasn't even aware I was pregnant. I didn't have a "bump" until 22+weeks.

    Yes, some folks loose weight for whatever reason. Just do as he says and it will be fine. Eat a lot, but, eat healthy.

  • Well, if you are eating healthier you may be taking in fewer calories. In any case, growing a baby takes a lot of your body's energey.

    calorie dense healthy foods

  • I am 16 weeks and lost 10 pounds. Doctor wasn't too concerned although I was and am. Wish I could be put on an early bedtime schedule, lol! My baby belly tends to sit on one side as well. I can feel baby and that is where baby likes to sit the most. Makes me look lopsided :)

  • its ok to loose some weight esp when u have been sick and since your doc is fully aware of your weight loss dont worry so much cuz that could b a small factor in it as well..just eat when your hungry and follow ur doc instructions and ull be just fine!!! Congrats on ur new baby
