MW mentioned something about medication they can prescribe me to help with weight or something in pregnancy. Anyone know what she was on about?

She was throwing so much info at me that I didn't ask questions and am kicking myself now. Sorry, I can't explain more, that's all I took in but does anyone know what she might have been referring to? I have a high BMI btw.

Might be metformin - there was a bit in the news about it recently.

orlistat is one of the only ones on the maket atm but no idea if it is safe in preg but I found it useful pre preg.

I wondered if it was metformin as it came up when I googled. Not too keen on the sound of that. Don't actually want to take anything tbh. I didn't put on very much last time and dd wasn't massively big.

Thanks both. I guess I'll find out in due course.
