  • has your doctor been conserned at all? Some women have lost weight their entire pregnancy and still had a healthy baby. It's normal to lose some weight and gain weight and all the inbetween...

  • are you skinny to begin with? I know I've always been OVER weight and they weren't majorly concerned when I lost 40lbs over the course of my whole pregnancy.....
    I think you should be ok.....

  • as long as your doctor hasnt said anything about your weight you should be fine but if you are worried about it bring it up to your doctor. i lost a lot of weight in the beginning of my pregnancy but i didnt really start showing until i was 8 months. good luck
