losing weight?

Okay so I have posted about my weight before and I am 26 weeks and I have been complaining about gaining 19 lbs. Only I have lost a few pounds, im now down to 150-151 which means I have gained 17 lbs. I haven't stopped eating or anything but I do force myself to drink lots of water and am back to eating tons of fruit. Is this safe that I am losing weight? This is my second pregnancy and I know during the last few weeks you can lose a few but I am still a ways away from that. Any thoughts?

Be glad. As long as they say your baby is growing fine I wouldnt worry at least your eating healthy. I crave salad and oranges like CRAZY! im 34 weeks and I am just now as heavy as I was before I got pregnant. I look at it as a good thing. My baby is huge and healthy. So why put the weight on if u dont need it?

Thank you that is a very good point. And the doc said my baby is measuring just a little bit bigger so she is growing just fine. And congrats you're pretty close to meeting your little one.

As long as baby is gaining weight ans you're eating its fine. Both pregnancies I've lost weight which surprised doctors as I'm gestational diabetic
