    Hi girls! I'm a bit worried about my lack of weight gain... I weighed myself the other day and I'm only just reaching my pre-pregnancy weight.

    I lost a stone due to hyperemesis and last weighed myself at 13 weeks... So in reality I've gained a stone since then but only to get back up to normal?

    Has anyone been through the same? What is the normal gain for the whole of 2nd tri?

    Please don't say I should be thankful, I'm really worried about this :nope:

    i've lost weight hunny so please dont' worry. however if you are worried talk to midwife ask to have baby checked on monitor. i'm sure you are just fine though. I'm now 7 and a bit weeks from due date and I don't look pregnant really so honestly it's as normal as gaining tons and tons of weight.

    (((hugs)))

    Hi, I am 25weeks and have just reached my pre pregnancy weight. I asked my midwife if it was a concern and she said as long as im eating like normal, not dieting, then there is nothing at all to worry about.xx

    With River i was 10st 6lb pre pregnancy. At 13 weeks i was 9st6lbs. I didnt really pay much attention to my weight after that but weighed myself just before 40 weeks and i was only just 11st. When i left the hospital i was already back down to 9st 11lbs (River was 8lb 14oz)

    Alot of my weight gain was in the last month or so of my pregnancy.

    I still weigh 5lbs less than pre pregnancy at 36 weeks. I think everyone is just different. I was worried too but my OB assures me it's fine so long as I am eating well
