I was overweight at the beginning of the pregnancy (thanks to Depo Provera messing up my body in many ways years ago...). I am now 30 weeks pregnant at at my OB appointment last week had lost 5 lb over the past month. Total weight gain right now is about 5-10 lb. I am high risk so I have been monitored pretty well and get sonos every month at the specialist. All the growth is happening the way it should. I can tell I've lost weight overall and feel pretty healthy - I think my fluctuations in energy are pretty normal with pregnancy. I eat healthy but I don't eat alot - between the heat (I live in TX where it was 100 degrees plus heat index for a month straight last month) and stress (not sleeping, anxiety, for which I recently received meds as it got really bad) I just haven't had much of an appetite. I figure as long as the doctors don't seem concerned I shouldn't worry... but still...Answer Question

With my last one, I lost over 20 pounds to begin with. I kept fluctuating and by the end of the pregnancy, I was only 1 lb over my pre pregnancy weight. The doctor said as long as the baby was healthy and there wasn't a huge weight loss, everything would be fine. She was right. Everything turned out great. Good luck!!
