Hi Shreeya,
Thanks for posting your query.
Weight can be constant in early 3-4 months of gestation & it increases maximum in last trimester.
Glycomet can control weight, but basically these are for control of blood sugar level.
So don't worry, continue your medication & consult your gynaecologist for regular check up & get ultrasound scan done at 11 weeks.
I hope your query has been answered.
Take care.
