It's normal especially (no offense) because you're over weight to begin with. My friend was 235 and by the time she was done being pregnant, she weighed 175 and had so far, kept the weight off. I lost weight in the beginning of all my pregnancies.

You lost 22lbs in about 20 days? I would definitely aam your doctor about it being that you are 26 weeks and not someone who say is in their first trimester vomitting all the time.

I've lost 18 pounds so far and I'm 28 weeks. My doctor has no concerns thus far. Express your concerns to your doctor if you're worried at all.

It isn't bad to lose excess weight,  you just have to do it appropriately through diet and exercise.  Nothing drastic and no over working yourself. I've heard it's safe to lose up to two pounds a week.  However,  check with your doc and see what they recommend for you.
