Re: losing weight
My SIL had severe morning sickness with her 2nd PG and didn't start gaining weight until 23 weeks. She actually lost 20 lbs in the beginning, and she is a tiny little Korean girl! She was down to 95 lbs before she started gaining again. She delivered a 7 lb 11 oz perfectly healthy baby girl.
My friend is now 30 weeks pregnant and has JUST gained weight. She is now +4 for the pregnancy, but she was 30 lbs overweight to begin with, and the baby is measuring fine on u/s and fundal height, so the docs aren't concerned at all. I think it happens quite often, because people start paying more attention to what they eat and eating healthier foods when PG. And it's good. The less overweight you are, the lower your risk of gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, and other complications.
