15 weeks and not gaining weight?

I am 15 weeks with my second child. I am still a pound less than my prepregnancy weight. With my first I had no problem gaining weight it was always the right amount. I noticed this pregnancy I haven't been eating unhealthy because most foods make sick which I think that's why I am not gaining weight. It just makes me nervous like the baby isn't getting enough. The doctor said at least I am not losing too much weight...does any one else have this problem?

I lost 17 pounds in the first trimester im now 2 days shy of 30 weeks and baby was 2 lbs 3 oz last Tuesday, it's ok to not gain or loose weight in the first trimester. Take your vitamins and drink ensure (what I did)  don't worry!  Everything will be fine!  :)

I'm 33 week. I lost 9lbs my first trimester and have only gained back 8lbs. As long as the baby is growing and the doctors are ok don't worry. You and baby will be fine.
