Post subject: Weight
I was quite heavy before I became pregnant. I was at nearly 14 stone. During the first trimester, I couldn't eat a thing and I was constantly sick. That brought me down to 12 stone.
I've been told by a lot of people that it was normal to lose weight in the first trimester, but I should start packing it back on in the second. I'm now at the end of the 2nd trimester and I'm still at 12 stone!
All the books I read tell me what I should do if I put on too much weight, but never if I put on too little. It's the first time I've ever been worried about NOT putting on weight.
Has anyone else experienced this?

Hi Dev, I lost nearly a stone during the first few months because of morning sickness. To be honest, since then, i've gained nearly 2 stone (i'm 9 months now - was due on wednesday). You'll only start gaining weight as your baby grows, and I dont think i really started gaining weight until about 30 weeks plus. Mention it your midwife if you're worried, but your body has probably gotten itself back to a nice healthy weight xx
