In brief: Yes
Weight gain early in pregnancy is not and should not be the issue so many people want to make it into.
As long as you are eating regularly, taking in good quality food in reasonable quantities and taking a multivitamin (prenatal), i would not worry about weight gain. On the other hand, if you are not eating for whatever reason, that needs to change. If it's nausea, seek your obgyn's help.
