Is this ok?? Worried.

Im 18 years old and i am 9 weeks pregnant. I recently found out that i have been losing weight since the pregnancy and usually i never lose weight. Im not sure if its because i stopped drinking sodas or if this is just a bad way to start off my pregnancy. Ive lost about 3 pounds in a week

Believe it or not, cutting out soda does a LOT for weight loss, especially if you drank it a lot before. I didn't gain anything in the first trimester and I wasn't eating any differently, just not drinking any soda, I wouldn't stress over it! Also lack of appetite, which I had bad in the first trimester, can cause weight loss.

I have had 2 children ages 11 and 7. With my first child I did the same thing you are doing. I lost weight like crazy and stayed worried thinking something was wrong with the baby or with me... my doctor told me that some woman loose weight during the pregnacy to just maintain taking the vitamins needed, eat right, do some exersicing, that everything was fine. Throughout the entire pregnancy I ended up gaining only 12 pounds and had a healthy baby girl... My second pregnancy was the complete opposite!!! I did nothing but gain weight... over 20 pounds... some womans bodies handle the pregnacy different than others. I wish you the best and congrats!!!

I lost weight in the first trimester, but thats because of morning sickness. Right now I haven't gained any weight. I will be 13 wks tomorrow. I think losing weight happens to many women in the first trimester.

Talk to your doctor about it and they will tell you if it's something to be watched. You are in your first trimester which is common to lose weight. You are probably okay. Stopping drinking soda will cause thou to lose weight and so will healthy eating.
