So after months and months of trying everything in my power to lose weight, apparently getting my bfp was the answer!!
I've not really had ms, just more a feeling of not wanting to eat/being unable to actually finish a meal when I do try to eat. I've been feeling queasy in the afternoons and evenings but had no sickness although I'm also getting quite dizzy and light headed.
I have an appointment with the gp on the 22nd March and I'm just wondering whether I should be worried at all about the weiht loss? I was overweight anyway but in the last 2 weeks I've lost 6lb. I'm just wondering if this is normal or if it's something I should be asking the gp about? I assume if I actually start with proper ms it's going to be more pronounced...
Am I just being a bit silly and paranoid?

I lost weight during my pregnancy (and that was with me scoffing take aways). My MW wasn't worried, as scans showed baby was growing fine.
Mention it though, as it will be helpful to have it noted, especially if you're worried.

I lost over 13% of my body weight during the period from 6-16weeks, and finally got back to my pre-pregnancy weight at 16weeks. I think the rule is, if you lose more than 10% then it's a sign to get things checked, but my MW was always happy. I'd still mention it, but as I say, for me, it was absolutely normal.

I've lost a couple of lbs since my BFP (I'm 19 weeks) but I've not been weighed since my booking in appt so nothings been mentioned
I didnt have ms but did go off food plus I've not been drinking so put the weight loss down to cutting out alcohol. I wouldn't worry, less to lose at the other end!

I lost nearly 2 stone with E due to horrendous morning sickness. I weighed the same the day I had Erin as when I got my BFP so I out on no weight in pregnancy at all! (Or lost a shed load whichever way you look at it). E was and is absolutely fine - it's mum that's suffers :)

I've lost 2lbs since I became pregnant, but the midwife says its fine, I'm now a healthier BMI

Thanks everyone, just me being paranoid I guess. Think I was more worried because I've not actually been sick at all and still losing the weigh but glad it's normal.
I will mention it, as you say it's probably best to speak to them about it. I was weighed there not long ago so they can see that info anyway...
