Losing weight?

Im 13 + 3 weeks and my nausea is practically all gone. I havent actually puke so far during the pregnancy and ive gained my normal 5 lbs during my first three months. But in between week 12 and week 13 i lost 4lbs? Im pretty sure im eating as much as i did during the last couple of weeks. During my bad days of nausea i cant fit much but its getting better. Im just wondering if there would be a reason why i would lose weight in only a week? Im so scared that something bad will happen, is this normal?

There are so many cavities that could play into that. 4 pounds isn't much. I wouldn't worry because your body naturally fluctuates that much anyways

Thank you :) i knew before pregnancy that the body goes up and down but wasnt sure during pregnancy. I thought maybe something was wrong with the baby and i was ready to fly out to the hospital lol ill keep and eye on it :) but its really reassuring!

I dropped 15 pds from my prepregnancy weight. I'm 20wks now and have just started gaining it back...a whole 3pds! Lol. But yea as long as you're hydrated and eating what you can don't worry about the small changes.:)
