    Hey,

    I just wondered if anybody else has lost weight since :bfp: ?

    I'm not too worried. Especially because I know the baby will take everything s/he needs and leave me by the wayside if needs be ;) I've told my MW and she was helpful, but not overly concerned... told me I could eat as many sweets as I liked if that's what worked at getting the calories in ;)

    I lost about 3lbs when I thought to try the scales seeing as my trousers were getting 'snug' ;)

    I'm not a fan of weighing, I think it's a big headache most people don't need. But I was surprised my belly was popping out early and the scales were saying -3lb from 'normal'

    I got a nasty temperature and cold etc which put me in bed all last week, and could hardly eat a thing. I've been eating the last couple of days, but I'm still -7lb or 1/2stone

    A friend of mine lost a bit with sickness, and I wondered if it was common or not?

    Sure there's plenty enough time and scoffing to put that and more back on ;D

    I lost a lot in the 1st trimester last time, just because I just couldn't eat and I was sick A Lot!
    My appetite did come back with vengeance later on tho!:dohh:

    i've lost 7.5lbs so far without trying but i've also just started treatment for a thyroid condition which was previously undiagnosed so that is also having an effect on me.

    Luckily i haven't had sickness yet (theres still time :rofl:) but my midwife isn't concerned.

    I lost some weight when I got my :bfp: I was like you cos I weighed myself to see how much I'd put on cos my trousers felt a bit snug lol!
    I spoke to the MW about this when she weighed me at my appointment and she said it's common to lose a few pounds at the beginning and it's nothing to worry about :)
