weight loss

Im 21 weeks pregnant and ive read that by this time im suppose to have gained atleast 10lbs. My last doctors appt was a weeks ago and i lost 13 lbs instead of gaining weight. I was told that    i am 11lbs under weight. I know sometimes you lose before you start to gain but i would assume i should have been gaining by now. Any other mommys been through this ?

Yes, I lost 15 pounds with my first and 10 with this one, it sucked ):
You'll start gaining in a few weeks probably, but everyone's body is different. You might not gain much. As long as the baby is healthy, right?

I lost 16 pounds. I'm now 25 weeks and under 3 pounds of my pre pregnancy weight. It's normal. I was just very sick my first trimester.
