I'm 13 weeks today, and I've lost 7lbs in since I've found out I was pregnant. I'm not vomiting, and I eat... I just don't know why not gaining. Anyone go thru this?

As my doc put it, the baby is acting like a parasite and taking everything it can from you. Make sure you're getting the nutrients that you not need. As for me, I was overweight to begin with so he said that he wouldn't be surprised if my final pregnancy weight was lower than my pre-pregnancy weight.

I lost 11lbs the first month or two of pregnancy and like some others mentioned my doctor said it was fine. My son has even been measuring above weight throughout this pregnancy and am now 36weeks and have definitely caught up lol

HCG helps maintain a healthy pregnancy weight it uses fat from fat stores as energy. So its usually why women find they lose weight throughout the first trimester/pregnancy. Its pretty awesome :)
