  • I did in the beginning. I was so sick and all I did was sleep. Also, I stopped drinking beer (obviously). Not that I drank everyday but dh & I would go out on the weekends and then eat at like 3am. God, that was so long ago, I can't beleive I actually used to stay up that late!!

  • I haven't lost weight, but I am 24 weeks and have only gained about 5 pounds. During the first trimester, I was losing about a pound, then gaining a pound every other week.

  • With both of my pregnancies I lost weight the entire time. My first one I delivered weighing 4/10 of a pound heavier. I am 36 weeks now and weigh about ten pounds less than pre pregnancy. My first son weighed 6 pounds and this baby is a good size.

  • your metabolism speeds up and the baby begins taking portions of the food you eat so if you just continue eating normally ya you will lose weight.
    I lost 25lbs before I reached 20weeks. I have slowly gained it back but am 9 months now and have still not gained all of it back yet.
    Dont worry, it happens. I never experienced morning sickness! I lost my appetite from 20 weeks to 23 weeks but it passed.
    My baby is a good size and I have had no complications at all. Not even swelling.
    Everyone is different. just eat healthy and plenty and exercise. GL
