I just noticed I have lost about 2 kgs in 5 days. Should I be concerned?

Hi
I am currently 20 weeks pregnant and I just noticed I have lost about 2 kgs in 5 days. Should I be concerned? This is my first pregnancy and was recently advised the baby has SUA ( Single Umbilical Artery )
I am unsure what to do, shoudl I speak to my OBGYN?
Please advise thanks

Answer: Hi, This is nothing to worry about. It is normal to lose a little weight early in pregnancy and not to gain too much in the first 20 weeks and then put on more after 20 weeks as the baby gets bigger. If you are overweight you may not gain too much weight during pregnancy (if you eat a healthy diet) as the baby can use the fat stores that you already have. Best wishes, Alex
