Anybody ewlsew having this problem? I startewd out at 118lbs, and now 10 weeks pg I weighewd in at 116lbs! I did thew samwe thing with DD1. I'm ewating morwe and ewating healthy. I started showing at about 2 wewweks(at lweast I noticwed), and now havwe a littlew bwelly and my lwegs arew too fat to pull most of my pants up or do thwem up. Thew last pg I suspewctewd my poor lifestyle and diet to be the problem but this time around I'm taking very good care of myself. Are there any other already petite or underweight moms out there losing wieght?

This time around, I was in maternity pants about a week after getting a very early BFP, though again I lost weight in the beginning. Less, though, I think only about 6 pounds. I think I'll end up gaining about the same amount this time as with DD. I'm 8 months along.
Both have been rather 'easy' and uneventful pregnancies. Neither my OBGYN the first time around nor my MW this time were ever concerned about it.

I'm not sure why people lose weight at the beginning...I know with my last pg it was partly due to loss of appetite, partly due to getting kidney stones. This time I've been much more healthy and active, plus I'm chasing a toddler who is also breastfeeding. I'm chalking it up to those things.
Don't worry - just take care of yourself and listen to your body. Congratulations!
First baby I gained 3-4 pounds in the first trimester. Second baby I lost 10. This baby I lost 13 in the first 12 weeks, and still haven't quite gotten back to my prepregnancy weight at 28w2d. Everything is measuring correctly and progressing well, so my midwife isn't worried.
