Too Much Weight Gain Now Loss

Lindsay - December 27

Hi I started out before pregnancy at 115, shot up to 140 fast as lightning because eating is all I could do to get away from first tri nausea. I gained from that point steadily like youre supposed to the second tri, up to the aforementioned 140. The last probably 3 weeks Ive lost weight, but my stomach is getting bigger. I have no appet_te now, its so hard to eat, but Im still eating enough, so why am I losing weight? Im at 135 now.

Hi Lindsay...I am not sure why you are losing weight but the same thing happened to me...I am 7 months and at my last doctors appointment I got on the scale and realized I had lost 7 pounds in 2 weeks...I was like wow I was expecting to have gained at least a few pounds.....so so far I have only gained 5 pounds total....although now my doc wants me to gain a pound a week the rest of the pregnancy....as long as the doctor tells you everything is fine with the baby I wouldn't worry too much....

Have you been tested for gestational diabetes yet? Sometimes weight loss is a symptom. Other than that, if you are losing weight I am sure it is fine as long as you are eating healthy food. You really should force yourself to eat good foods because this is the time in the pregnancy when baby is putting on all his/her weight. In the 3rd tri, all you gain pretty much goes to the baby.

I thought weight gain was a symptom of gestational diabetes? I could be wrong though...
