I found out i was pregnant on 3rd May, i weighed 9.4st at the time. Weighed myself today and im 8.11 now.... Ive eaten like normal ect and morning sickness has only kicked in properly this week so its definetly.not that.

Im a bit worried now, ive been pregnant before and this didnt happen. Any experience of this anyone? xx

I lost weight each time and looked much skinnier for the first trimester at least. I was never sick or stopped eating, I think my metabolism just sped up or something. Babies always grew ok and no issues.

I lost 13 kg in this pg within 8 weeks. Not so great but baby seems fine - now at 28 weeks.

Just try to keep taking the vitamins.

I lost weight. I put it down to the sudden lack of wine in my life grin

Try not to worry but do ask your MW or GP if you are concerned.

I lost weight 7lbs to be exact in first trimester, I just got weighed at the midwifes on Friday 2nd time I've been weighed by midwives (first was at booking in and now at 22 weeks) and I've lost 1/2 a kilo. confused

Ok I didn't want to admit it but I did think the same as Pinot, I probably lost weight as I was not consuming pints of lager!

I lost too. Didn't particularly change my diet and wasn't off my food at that point
In fact I ended my pregnancy at around the weight I had been beforehand. Different shape obviously!

I lost over a stone in the first 5 m with DS, and also blamed the lack of wine and ale. Baby was fine throughout, and 9lb born.

Thanks for the quick replies!!

I thought maybe my metabolism too but wasnt sure, but what Pinnotgrigg said could be the vase here lol. Could easily drink 6 bottles of wine over the weekend ( sounds bad wrote down doesnt it I havnt drank since i found out so yes i bet thats what it is!! Thanks, i was really bloody worried for a while then!

My dp said to mention it at my next scan ( friday ) i dont have midwife appointment till 13th june but having early scans due to a bleed plus 3 previous pregnancys that didnt work out.

Ahh thank you ladies i feel so much better smile

I've lost a lb or two but that's due to eating healthier. If I cut out more crap I prob loose more which tbh I wouldn't mind. I think it's quite normal to loose a bit and the stopping drinking definitely helps. It'll all be back on by the end plus a load.

I lost 8kg in 1st trimester and early 2nd. Just couldn't eat much with MS. Midwife was totally unbothered, and I haven't been weighed since booking appt. Gaining slowly and steadily now at 25 weeks!
