losing weight

So I had an ultrasound today again, I'm about 11 weeks. In the last month I've lost
about 8 lbs. I was a little bigger before my pregnancy. I haven't been vomiting or anything but I've been losing weight. The baby's heart beat and everything was normal. Have any of you other ladies lost weight during pregnancy without throwing up? I'm kind of worried.

I never threw up during my pregnancy and lost about 7 pounds. I didn't start gaining weight back until my 3rd trimester.  Completely normal. Don't worry

Okay thank you! That's a relief.

I only threw up 3 times in my first trimester but consistently lost weight. About 10 lbs, and I've only gained 4 back at my last visit. I'm 26 weeks now and my dr was not at all concerned about the weight loss. :)

I think a big part of it is the concentrated effort to eat more healthily. I didn't throw up nearly this much last time and I lost a bit.

Yeah I lost 28 lbs between weeks 6 - 22 and now I have finally started gaining I gained back maybe 7 of it so no worries and the doctor says it's normal for bigger girls to lose before they gain.... if they gain at all

Yup. I lost 15 to 20 pounds in my first trimester. I'm 23w4d and was still down about 7 pounds on my last visit, according to my first recorded weight at the OB. My GP has recorded me losing some weight before I knew I was pregnant.
