Weight loss!!!

So I have had morning sickness since I was about 5 weeks pregnant so now its over 5 weeks of it with no end in sight…some days are worse than others but I get it everyday…I barely eat one meal a day because I will puke it up if I get too full or I smell something horrid..I weighed myself about 2 weeks ago and since then I have lost 10lbs…I was already on the heavier side so I needed to lose the weight anyway but losing weight while pregnant is unnerving…I know the baby is getting all the nutrients it needs but I just wish I could eat normally…I hope that by the time I get into the 2nd trimester it gets better but who knows…someone said it could be up until 16 weeks or the entire pregnancy which I hope is not the case…
