  • A person's weight can fluctuate within three pounds (more or less) in a day - so yes, it's normal to weight a pound less today than you did yesterday. And you're only 7 weeks along. You won't be packing on the pounds yet.

  • Relax you are 7 weeeekss!!!!! You are over reacting. If you were 5 months pregnant and losing weight maybe a bit concerning
    . Think of all the woman who puke their brains out for monthsssss when pregnant and they hardly eat and they lose weight they have no control. I would take it easy and not worry so much

  • one pound could be a glass of water and you may be urinating more frequently now? Keep your fluids up. :)
