Don't worry Rachael - I know lots of women who have lost weight during their first trimester and had perfectly health and norma pregnancies and babies. I also haven't put on any weight and I am at 11 weeks and puking a lot in the past few weeks. Good luck!

I wouldn't worry, apparently if is very normal not to put any weight at all during the 1st trimester, which you have just finished. Supposedly you put most of the weight on in the middle three months.

There is some info here at the bottom of the page. But really don't worry about it. Your m/w will be able to reassure you that the baby is growing well and thats what matters. If you have started to show, then you know that the little one is growing. When is your next appointment?

Like tinyfeet I puked, actually still am and have lost 15 kilos (33 pounds) since I got pregnant. But I was overweight so there were no concerns. At my 20 week scan last week the estimate weight of the baby was that of a 21/22 week baby.
