36 Weeks & Losing Weight?

I'm 36 weeks pregnant & I just went in for my biweekly check-up today. I was 176lbs 2 weeks ago, now I am 174lbs. The normal doctor wasn't there today & all the fill in told me was that it was probably water weight.
I'm 16 years old & normal weight to begin with. During the whole pregnancy (which I didn't find out until 5 1/2 months), my appetite has been normal. I take prenatals everyday. I also have pregnancy induced anemia & take Iron once a day from it.
Should there be anything to worry about? Any advice to give me? When should I really start being concerned?

I wouldn't be concerned at all, and you shouldn't be unless your doctor is. I never gained weight with my pregnancy, and only lost. My daughter is a very healthy 10 month old.  Depending on the weight you were at previously as well will influence what you should be gaining now.

Some women lose weight during the last few weeks or do not gain at all, which was in my case. Your doctor is right, it may simply be due to water. I wouldn't worry about it, not unless it is a drastic weight loss. If your doctor isn't worried about it, then everything must be OK. You have a few weeks to go, good luck!
