I've lost 6lb since I've been pg - I'm 11 weeks now.

I've not been dieting or exercising. My appetite has waned a bit but not to the extent that I would normally lose any weight.

I'm not really worried but just thought I'd ask in case anyone said 'ooh no, it might be ........' and I should get it checked out.

hi pink

i lost a stone in first 12weeks preg with DS 1 - mainly due to morning sickness. I was worried and went to see GP and she said just to make sure I was getting enough vit C (she suggersted ribena [shack]) and not to worry.

not much help really - but a bump nonetheless!

Hi PSW - I am 37 weeks pregnant and am just under 2 stone lighter than I was before I fell pregnant. Just remember that bubs now takes preference in the food department so even if you have reduced eating by just a little bubs will now take what it needs and you get the leftovers grin I was told to increase the fruit and veg and cereals to keep up my vitamin content.

Thanks guys! I eat pretty well usually (veg etc) although have been getting lazy. Might need to do bootcamp on 10/10 thread!

If I could have put it down to being sick or hardly eating at all then I wouldn't think anything of it! I wish it was this easy normally to shed the lbs! I'll just be pleased and hope it carries on. I might be a size 8 by the time I pop this one out!

By BMI was about 25 so not worried that I'm going to waste away hana!

you seem really healthy to me - if there was nothin else going on I would not worry especially and just mention it at next appointment.

I lost weight in the first three months as well, and don't seem to have gained that much throughout the rest. I'm sure it's because I've not been drinking!

I lost a stone betweek week 8 and week 16 of this pregnancy. I didn't have much morning sickness and I eat reasonably well. The midwife wasn't bothered and I have since gained just about the recommended amount. You could mention it to your midwife but most likely there's nothing wrong. The baby will take what it needs from you.

i've lost 4lbs too - 11w now - I'm sure it's being off the red wine that's making all the difference!

I've lost a stone and a half since being pregnant (now 20 weeks) but tbh i'm still a good 5 stone over weight so I'm praying it continues! Baby is growing normally tho. But if you were very slim prior to getting PG then it's worth chatting to your GP or midwife.

I lost at least a stone in the first 15 weeks in both of my pregnancies. I was eating well but with quite a bit of chocolateblush

With DS2 I had only put on 6lb by 30 weeks but my midwife said that as long as I was measuring ok then there was nothing to worry about.
