not gaining weight

Hello everyone!  I am 15 weeks pregnant and my doctor tells me I need to watch my weight because I am actually losing a couple pounds every time I go to weigh in. Is anyone else experiencing that?  I think I'm eating normal,  even more than usual.  I am drinking more water than ever tho so maybe that's why? ?

When i was around 15weeks i only gained 3lbs and my prepregnancy weight was underweight..i thought it was unhealthy n to stay away from fast food n ice cream..but she told me to drink losts of shakes n ear ice cream n burgers..i did so and around 19wks visit i had gained 13lbs..still underweight but its progress..now i dnt just eat fastfood i cook real food n eat ice cream at night n eventually ya appetite will pick up cuz i think it also had something to do with 1st trimester sickness

Same here. My weight before pregnancy was 155 I've been stuck at 161 for months. I'm 5mths now. By the end of a day scale says 163 and by morning it's 161 sometimes 160.5. Baby looks fine so I don't worry. As long as your baby is looking fine your all good.
