Weight loss

I'm now almost 16 weeks pregnant, and i havent gained any weight. Should i be worried?? My last appointment at 12 weeks was all ok. I'm concerned about the baby. Any of you experiance the same?

I'm 14 weeks and I lost 3, gained 2. I'm roughly the same as I was before I got pregnant but I haven't really changed my eating. I'm assuming everything is good since my doctor didn't talk to me . First trimester you can lose weight of you have morning sickness or loss of appetite. As long as the baby is growing that's all that matters.

I will know tomorrow if everything is ok. I lost 6 in the first trimester but gained nothing yet. And i eat the whole day. I have been trying for over two years but now its finally a reality I'm worried faster

That's pretty normal I'm pregnant with my fourth an lost a lot of weight with all my kids an didn't start gaining weight til about 25wks an still only gained 11 lbs.  my dr says ya perfectly normal you don't want to gain a lot of weight anyways an the baby doesn't start putting on weight til towards the end!   I think your baby is perfectly healthy even though you haven't gained anything

I lost 15lbs In the first 5 months of this pregnancy. Doctor said as long as baby is still growing and healthy all is good. I'm 25 weeks now and barely gained 5lbs
