Best Answer

Particularly during the first trimester when you are nauseous it is quite common to lose a couple of pounds. I had evening sickness rather than morning sickness, so dinner would be put on the table and I couldn't eat it. My husband gained 5 pounds and I lost 5 pounds in the first 3 months. In the second and third trimester most women put on weight. If you are losing weight for no apparent reason do speak to your doctor as this is NOT normal.
