With my first i lost more weight then i gained and didn't even start gaining till around 25 wks.  She was a very healthy baby and weighed 8.7 lbs at birth.   This pregnancy i lost 20 in the first trimester and now gain about 5 lbs a month.  I know my weight just likes to shift when i am pregnant.   Now that you are getting your appetite back you should start gaining.  My dr has said that it is normal to loose weight at first especially if you have been really sick.
