Re: minimal weight gain
I lose weight pregnant too, and I have never had morning sickness. I have started each of my pregnancies with extra fluff, and usually lose until about halfway through, then gain steadily. I have an average gain of 15 pounds, all of which is lost at or shortly after delivery. Right now I am 24 weeks and still down 3 pounds from my conception weight. As long as baby is growing fine and you are measuring on track, the weight is not an issue. I don't agree with the idea that women need to gain weight while pregnant - they need to eat WELL, nourish their body and their baby, and their body will do the rest. It is not uncommon for larger women to lose abnormal body fat during pregnancy. Have you ever heard of the HCG diet? Men do it too!
