losing weight???

So im 24 weeks 2 days. Went to get my W.I.C started today, stepped on the scale and im weighing in at 188lbs. But had a OB appt just 2 weeks ago and I was at 195lbs. I thought pregnancy was ALL about gaining not losing weight...anywho this is my third pregnancy and its never happened before.

I was 215 when i found out i was pregnant andi lost over 20 lbs within my first 5 months ... At 36 weeks i still haven't got back up to 200 (not that i wanted to) but i think it depends on your starting weight ... Just as long as you continue to eat right the weight loss shouldn't b a big deal ... My baby is bigger than any I've ever had but i can't gain weight

The scales could be off! It's best to only keep up with your weight on one scale!
