I have lost roughly 11kgs since the start of my pregnancy

I am 19wks pregnant and my weight was 94kgs when I was 2 wks pregnant. When I went for my 12wk checkup it was 92kgs. I weighed myself at 15 wks and I was down to 88kgs. I weighed myself yesterday and am now 83kgs. So I have lost roughly 11kgs since the start. Is this normal?? I can feel the baby moving ok and I am only throwing up once every two or three days. I am still eating as well.

Answer: Hi, It is not uncommon to lose weight in early pregnancy and even more so if you were overweight when you fell pregnant. Don’t worry the baby is getting everything it needs. Try eating a healthy diet and getting some regular exercise during pregnancy and this will help keep you and the baby happy. Best wishes, Alex
