Hi,

Losing weight in first trimester pregnancy is actually pretty normal, especially if you've got a bad case of morning sickness. As many as 80 percent of moms-to-be experience some form of pregnancy nausea, which is resulting weight loose. Be assured that losing a few pounds at this stage has no impact on your baby's development.
