Losing weight

I'm only 6w1d, but over the past 7 days I have lost 3 lbs and it is NOT from morning sickness (I've only thrown up once so far).  I'm not trying to lose weight, at all, and as much as I hate to admit it, I have fully embraced the eating habit of "eating for 2" already. I'm overweight, so it's not like I'm getting unhealthy thin or anything, but is it normal to lose weight like this without trying?  My last pregnancy (ended in miscarriage at 13 weeks) I was sick ALL THE TIME and lost 6 lbs during the first trimester, but when you are throwing up twice a day, it's easy to see how you could lose weight in THAT case.

Yes it's normal to lose weight while pregnant. I lost weight the first trimester and my doctor didn't worry as long as baby is growing.  Just eat healthy and stay active! ! Good luck

I lost 10 pounds first trimester but I'm overweight and had no appetite. I'm 20 weeks now and I have gained 2 pounds back and my doctor is not worried

I am over weight and lost 23 lbs in the first trimester without morning sickness. Don't worry about it, as long as baby is growing, all is well.
