Hi Ladies, I was just wondering..aren't you suppose to GAIN weight and not be losing? So far i have lost about five pounds and I am a little over 10 weeks along. I don't recall this happening with my other pregnancies. Anyone else have this happen to them?

I did. With all of mine. I'm a bit heavy to start with. With my first and second I ended up 10 lbs. lighter by my due date than my pre-preg weight!! With my last I lost for most of the pregnancy and only ended up gaining 10 lbs. total (and the baby was 10 lbs. 6 oz.). I don't know why this happens?? I ate like a horse. With the first one my doctor was ready to send me in for a blood test to make sure I was getting proper nutrients and not starving myself, but DH piped up and said, "She ate a whole pizza the other night b/f I even got any and she eats like that all the time!" Any other time, I'd have killed him- lol. Anyways, in order my babies weights were in the 9's, 8's and 10's, so apparently they weren't starving in there!! Hope this helps ease your mind.

Yes thank you does ease my mind ALOT. I guess I shouldn't be too worried, all of my babies were big babies and they too didn't starve!! LOL All five of my girls were over 9 and my boy who is the youngest was 10, so I guess I should have no worries. Thanks again.

Im doing the same thing im almost 9 weeks and I have already lost about 6 pounds. With my last one by this time it seemd like I had already gained 10 pounds. Even though I am losing weight my belly is getting bigger though. How about you?

Most women do lose weight at first and then they gain it back.

Hi dedaa. Yes I have lost about 4 pounds and i am 11 weeks now, but yes, I have noticed my belly is getting bigger too. Well I guess as long as the baby is growing there shoudn't be too much to worry about huh? LOL

Hi wesley123 im now 11weeks along and every time i step on the scales i have lost another pound, i think i have lost about 4 pounds now, but i have heard that you do lose a bit of weight befour you start putting it on, so dont worry its all normall.


wesley123 - July 28

Thanks Natpink, after having 6 kids you'd think I would know that by, but with every pregnancy I worry about the same things, I just feel silly after asking the same question with each pregnancy. Well now I am 13 weeks and I haven't lost anymore than the 5 pounds (so far) so I guess everyone was right about this weight thing. LOL Thanks again ladies!
