LOsing weight?

Hey guys. Instead of gaining weight I'm losing it?
Could this be from morning sickness or is something wrong?
Should I be concerned??

Im 13 weeks. I was just really worried. I didnt know what to think! My mom said it could be because of vomiting and my appetite. I just needed to make sure.

I lost about 5lbs in the first trimester. But, I have gained 13lbs in the last 13 weeks. I wouldn't worry about it  unless your doctor/midwife mentions it at your next appointment. Eat well!
Best wishes.

It's completley normal to lose or not gain in your first trimester.  I didn't gain any weight until I was about 16 weeks even then it was only a few pounds.  Your baby is so tiny at this point you will start packing on the pounds when you are a little farther along when your baby starts needing more.  I think by 20 weeks I had only gained about 5lbs.... then by the time I delivered I had gained 36 lbs (normal weight prior to pregnancy) most of it was the last couple of months.  =)

loosing weight can be normal.  Your appitite changes.  
I think it could also depend on how much you weighed before. ...

Not at all loosing weight is totally normal in the first stages of pregnancy, I mean you loose your appetite and are being sick, im15 weeks and still loosing it, I'm not expecting to gain anything until the very end so I wouldn't worry, how far are u?

Ive lost weight during my pregnancy, but mine is from an eating disorder... Your OB/Midwife/Doc will montior this.. and you can bring it upp at your next apt if you're truely worried. They might just say its fine as long as you're not losing tooo much, and give you target to try and reach by a certain time in your pregnancy!
