  • I lost weight when I was pregnant with my daughter.
    I decided to eat super healthy(which I should have been doing from the start but those cravings are so powerful) and I had GD so I cut out refined sugar and a lot of carbs and such. I lost weight as a result.
    She was still a healthy 7lb9oz baby.

    You could be retaining less water.

  • It depends on you, your body, your baby, your health......

    my son weighed 7 pounds 12oz and at the end when the preg was over I had lost 30ish pounds

    my daughter weighed 6 pounds 12oz and I lost a TON.... even though she measured normal on the ultrasounds they gave me tpn (tube feeding) to calorie bulk up weeks 29-39 of my pregnancy. even w/ the 4000 calories a day feedings in the end I lost nearly 60 pounds
