I didnt gain anything till 20 weeks. People lose weight. It's ok. No worries. You'll get your weight up, and it will keep going up, then you'll feel like you're a whale.

I am 16 weeks pregnant and I have only gained two pounds. With my first pregnancy I did not gain until I was around 7 months pregnant. Everyone is different. I am sure that everything is fine. The doctor will tell you if you need to worry. That is why they do so many urine tests and blood tests.

your doctor will tell you if its a problem, but you'll catch up don't worry. i lost about 10 lbs by week 15 and was concerned.  but now im full term and i have put on 40 lbs.  it just happens that way sometimes.

dont worry the dr would tell you if he was concerned.  i lost 19 pounds in the first 16 weeks and i still vomit all day every day (27wks today) and my baby is doing good.  besides you dont really start to gain weight until mid to end of pregnancy. good luck!

With my first pregnancy I only gained a total of 10 lbs....and of course my doctor kept yelling at me to gain more (like I could have controlled it..I was already eating 6 meals a day! lol)

But my daughter was born perfectly healthy at 6 lbs. 9 oz.  So don't you worry about your weight!  Your baby will be fine!!! =)
