It's Ok mummy, don't worry. I've lost 11kg from being pregnant so far. I'm currently going to 27 weeks (Third trimester is coming!) Lost a lot in first tri (although no morning sickness or vomiting), weight loss slowed down in second tri but still lost weight. My gynae says baby seems to be growing well and of normal weight so I shouldn't be worried. Reason I'm losing weight is I've eaten healthier as compared to pre-pregnancy, and I'm more active now (swims and walks regularly. Before pregnancy I rarely exercise lol). As long as you are getting enough nutrients in your body and eating healthily, and baby is growing well, don't worry about it!!! Good thing about not gaining weight during pregnancy is I don't have aches, lethargy, or breathlessness, so do look on the bright side about not gaining weight!
