Weight loss in early pregnancy

Hey everyone! I am 5 weeks pregnant! I am feeling great, a little tired in the afternoon, but other than doing awesome! I have one small concern though...I feel as If I am losing weight, not gaining it like I am supposed to. I eat 3 small meals a day and 6-7 snacks in between. Just curious if this is normal. I don't have a scale at home, but if you know your body, than you know that you are losing some lbs! Let me know!

Do you work? If you do work in a factory or anything they might has a scale there where you can keep track. Everyone's body is differnet so I would ask your doctor.If you live close to family see if they have a scale you can use until you find out what is going on. Not many people really use the scale that often so I don't think you using it would cause a problem. Do you eat until you are full or do you stop yourself? Remeber you are eatting for 2 people now but don't over due it. That is all I can tell you sense I haven't been pg yet.

No I work in a hair salon and I sit most of the day. I have been walking about a mile every morning, so maybe I am just toning up and not losing weight. oh well, I go to see my doctor on monday and I will see my weight then. Thanks for the advice! Baby dust to you.

my mom said that she lost weight during the 1st trimester with all 5 of her pregnancies and had healthy normal babies. im not a doctor but i dont think its anything to lose sleep over. u might want 2 ask ur doctor just in case. :)

Congrats, you must be so excited!I lost weight first 3-4 months,The first two months I just lost a few pounds because wasn't trowing up yet, but the 3rd and 4th month was horrible. I wasn't eating much, and anything I ate came right back out. So I think it might be normal to loose weight the first trimester. Through my whole pregnancy I gained 20 pounds. Good Luck!

During my first pregnancy, I lost weight because I was so sick I couldn't stand the thought of eating anything!  The doctor told me this was fine, just to be sure I was still taking my prenatal vitamins, and to eat when I could and make sure what I did get was good in nutritional value.  Hope this helps!

weight loss in the first trimaster is perfectly normal. after that you will naturally start gaining.

I lost weight with both of my pg's--and I was never sick--I think when you find out  you start to cut out some of the bad things you eat and watch everythign you do--so as long as th baby grows fine there is nothing to worry about--I ended up only gaining 17lbs with each pgcy due to eating a low carb diet and cutting out a lot of my favorite things--but I was much better for it and had two helathy boys over 8 1/2lbs.
