Weight loss???

Has anyone lost weight in their first trimester? I'm now almost 8 weeks with twins and have lost a few pounds. I lost my appetite just after my IVF treatment cos I was sooo bloated n in so much pain from enlarged ovaries. But I felt better 2 weeks ago and I'm eating normally now (I think) despite feeling nauseous throughout the day. However I can't seem to put back the weight I lost and even seem to be losing a little more. Is this normal? I was already underweight to begin with and usually I find it very difficult to put on weight. I'm so worried that it may affect my pregnancy or my health. I would appreciate any input. Thanks...

if you are worried you can talk to your ob about it. s/he may be able to prescribe a multi vitamin or something to help you gain weight.

I lost about 15lbs in my first trimester.  I did IVF as well and was extremely sick for the whole trimester.  It got so bad I couldn't even keep sips of water down.  One night I was puking so much and so hard that I tore my esophogus and started throwing up blood.  I ended up even having to be put under for an endoscopic procedure.  Both my babies are wonderful and healthy.  I know it's hard not to worry but please know they are very well protected in your "baby hotel"
keep your doctor informed of your concerns!
Lots of love
