Losing weight at 37 weeks pregnant

I went to the doctor's today and I have lost 5 lbs in the last two weeks. I am measuring accurate but he wants to do a Ultrasound. Is this normal? or should I be concerned?

  • I started losing weight at the end of my pregnancy. (Although, I was puking my guts out regularly.) A friend of mine also lost weight during her pregnancy. With mine, I was losing weight and the baby was measuring big.........figure that one out! LOL! I wouldn't worry too much about it.

  • I lost weight too. I did not have any appetite to speak of. I weighed less at delivery than at conception.

  • I lost weight through both of my pregnancies, always weighed less at delivery than at conception. However I do believe it is very common for women to lose weight at the end of pregnancy.
