Is it normal to lose weight during pregnancy

Weight loss during pregnancy is only considered normal if the mother is overweight or obese before conception.

In some cases, pregnancy can temporarily boost metabolism

Women with higher muscle mass tend to burn more calories, which could contribute to pregnancy weight loss

 Severe morning sickness (hyperemesis gravidarum) can cause significant weight loss

High-stress levels might influence weight changes during pregnancy

In certain cases, excessive weight loss during pregnancy can affect the baby's growth and development negatively

Remember, every pregnancy is different, and maintaining proper nutrition and a healthy lifestyle is crucial for both the mother and the baby's well-being.
