It could be like when you start to work out... you can be losing fat and gaining muscle, so that the weight doesn't change, but the mass does, because muscle is leaner and takes up less volume pound for pound than fat does.

I got sick of not knowing my weight so bought a scale. 8lb to go 'til pre-preg. Back in my stretchy jeans, but not the rigid ones yet.
