i hate to say this because it sounds bad, but babies are like parasites in the way that they feed off of our bodies to nourish themselves. the baby is probably nourishing itself with your fat cells. are you sure your giving the baby all the proper nutrients it needs, if not they will take them from you whether you can spare them or not thats just the way it goes. Talk to you dr, and see what she or he says

You are probably ok. I have not gained anything during this pregnancy so far... In fact I've LOST 13lbs so far and I'm 23 weeks... My doctor is not worried though. My baby is growing fine

I had the same issue.  Reason I was losing weight was very specific to me and not likely the same reason as you.  But my doctor recommend supplementing my diet with an ensure/boost to ensure I was getting any missing nutrients.
