How Much Weight Loss Is Normal

I am currently 12 weeks pregnant. I haven't gained any weight. Infact, I've lost 11 lbs overall. I'm 5'2" and now about 117lbs. Is this a normal amount of weight to lose? I've only vomitted a couple times overall.

It's definitely not unheard of to have lost weight especially in your first trimester although more women tend to put on a couple of pounds instead of losing weight. Are you taking your prenatal vitamins? So long as you're taking your prenatals, eating as regularly and as well as you can (I didn't throw up once but I was constantly nauseous) and you're under the care of a doctor, I really wouldn't worry about it. Babies are pretty much parasitic at this point -- they take the nutrients they need anyway they have to. From the food you eat is preferred, but they will leach out any reserves you have if you're not getting enough in your diet right now. So they will never go without (unless you were malnourished before you got pregnant!).

It's pretty normal to lose a few pounds in the first trimester. I lost about 10 lbs in the beginning with all 3 of my pregnancies. I never really vomitted much but I was really nauseated all the time and couldn't eat much. I sure made up for it later on though, lol! I gained 50 - 60 lbs with all 3.
