Early Pregnancy Symptoms - Weight Loss

Weight loss, perhaps surprisingly, is something many pregnant women experience throughout the first trimester of pregnancy.

However, considering that most women try to eat more healthily, cut out alcohol, drink more fluids, and eat less due to a decreased appetite, it is completely normal! You may be complimented on how wonderful you are looking often by unsuspecting individuals who are unaware of your pregnancy. Make the most of it while you can!

If you fail to gain weight after the first trimester your doctor may want to investigate why this is the case and may run a few routine tests.
