    Yes its completely normal especially if she is sick! I lost 10 pounds before I finally gained my weight! And my baby ended up 9 lbs and healthy as a horse! No worries!

  2. ~C~ said :

    yes because she is vomiting a lot.

    If she is sick all the time it is only natural that she is losing a bit of weight. She should talk to her doctor and make sure she’s not losing too much. Slight weight lose in early pregnancy is normal.

    so far i have lost 22pounds and im 15weeks. the doctors and midwives aren’t concerned and said that its just something that happened to some women. as long as she is eating healthy and is still a healthy weight then its nothing to worry about she will more than likely put the weight back on later on in the pregnancy.

    If she is suffering with severe sickness and isn’t able to keep much food down, yes, it is very possible. If it comes to the point where she is dehydrated and can’t function in normal every day life, she may need to be put on something along the lines of zofran. If she is worried, she should see her doctor.

    If your wife was 102 lbs when she got pregnant and she is losing 2-3 lbs a week she needs to see the doctor for medicine to help her keep food down. If your wife was 150+ when she got pregnant its just fine. In a normal low risk pregnancy the doctors generally don’t care if you lose weight the first trimester if you had extra weight on you to start with. The underweight women are a different story.

    Yes it is normal. I lost a few pounds in the beginning as well.

    yes, its common during the first trimester when she’s always sick. if you suspect anything could be wrong, call her doctor, she may have something that requires medicine (i forgot what it was called).

    Um ya I lost 16 pound because I stopped eating sweets and couldn’t keep down food.

    With my three year old, I lost 15 pounds in about a week. But that was because I got gall stones and my doc put me on a special diet. Losing weight this early in pregnancy is not only normal but expected. As long as she’s communicating all of this with her doc and her doc says she’s healthy, she’ll be just fine.
