I don't know how normal it is to lose weight early in pregnancy, but it certainly is not unusual or uncommon.

I lost several pounds during my first pregnancy. And I ended up having a very healthy 10 pound baby boy who is now a healthy and energetic 5'7" 12-year-old. He's a gifted student with above average intelligence; happy and outgoing with many friends; musically talented, technically inclined.

Obviously, my losing a few pounds in my first trimester didn't hurt him a bit.

Have a little faith in your doctor.

Congratulations and Good Luck!

I have to agree, listen to your doctor. With my first child I lost ten pounds and with my second I lost almost 20. Both from being sick so much in the first trimester. But had an end result of two very healthy baby's.

I'm in the 14th week now and still having nausea and morning sickness. I have lost 9 pounds+. The frequency of vomitting has reduced and it's like 1-2 days a week but when I throw up, I throw up the whole day. Can I hope to get better in next 2-3 weeks ?

With my first child I was sick the first five months, as well as having a bout with E-Coli, lost 19 lbs. Gradually gained it back so at the end of the pregnancy I had gained a net 1(one)lb. An 8 lb boy with the brain of Einstein, and as cute as Ashton.

I lost over 15 pounds in the first 12 weeks, and am currently 18 weeks, and not gaining it back quickly at all. My doctor says I am doing great, so that is what I go by! I would talk to your doctor to be sure.

I was super sick the first 12 weeks, and currently have about 1/3 of the appetite I did before I ever got preg. I still throw up every now and then, and have horrible indigestion! I have wrote it off as I am just going to be one of those "unlucky" ones! :) Just think of it this helps not to OVER eat!

pregnancy weightI'm in the first 12 weeks of my pregnancy and i am starting to lose weight I'm already a thin person weighing only 56kg at 184cm in height, but in the last 3 days I've gone from 56 to 53 and now I'm 52.... I'm going to buy another set of scales even though the ones i have are only a few weeks old, i cant help but think this inst healthy.... i eat a lot more than i used to and i get nausea but don't throw up... its weird.. i just don't know how I'm losing weight..

A lot of women lose weight during the first trimester. I lost about 5 pounds. I was told it has to do with your body adjusting to the extra hormones. I didn't get morning sicknes at all. Now I'm 36 weeks and the worst thing I experience is very bad heartburn. I have started to get lightheaded though. Throughout the day though I get very sharp pains in my groin muscles, and around the vagina (where the groin muscles come together. I have gained a healthy 20 pounds so far, and am all baby. Though they say she's only going to be maybe 7 pounds, very nice....

with my first baby i was 2 stone lighter when i gave birth than when i concieved i now have a healthy 2 year old 92cm boy who weighs in at around 36lb with my second i was 1 and half stone lighter when i gave birth than at conception he is a healthy 1 yer old boy at 79 cm and weighs in at around 25LB so i dont think it does cause harm well not in my case anyway
