Seem to be losing weight

I'm 21 weeks pregnant and I don't seem to be gaining weight if anything I'm losing it.

I didn't have any appetite in the first trimester and did loose a bit. In this trimester we've moved house and I'm in the middle of a health scare. I've put on 1/2 a stone in the whole pregnancy. I am eating but nowhere near as much as I did with DS and I'm having to make a conscious effort to eat.

Should I be concerned/call midwife?

Half a stone is bang on normal for 21 weeks (unless you were overweight to begin with in which case it's actually a bit high!). Don't worry, you're fine! Totally normal to lose weight in 1st trimester.

I lost 8lbs in my first trimester and gained it in my second then plateaued until I was 28 weeks when I started gaining.
