losing weight

I am 20 and 5 weeks pregnant with my first baby. I was trying to lose weight before I found out I was pregnant and my weight just wouldn't move off 11st 6lb, I have weighed myself a few times and have been recording it on here and I now weigh 11st 1lb I only found out I was pregnant a week ago today. Is this normal?

Your weight can fluctuate in the beginning. I wouldn't worry about it babies are very resilient. They get nourished first and then you so they take what they need from your body that's why its important to take a prenatal vitamin not so much for the baby but for your body to cope with any nutritional deficiency. And gaining weight in the beginning isn't crucial. I lost 20lbs with my first pregnancy due to morning sickness and shes a perfectly happy 4 year old
