My midwife and doctor both told me that I shouldn't worry about weight loss and whether or not the baby was getting enough nutrients because my body would prioritize nutrients to the baby, unless it was really deprived. They said if the weight loss coincided with brittle nails, losing large amounts of hair or if my bowel movements were suddenly spaced out by more than a few days with no other known cause (like zofran-induced constipation), then I should talk to them again. If you're worried about it you could call and talk to a nurse.
