Losing weight at 35 wks...

I asked this yesterday, but bc of the holidays I didn't get any answers.

I'm 8 1/2 months, and have been steadily losing weight over the past few days. Between Thanksgiving morning (before I ate anything) and when I went to bed (having been eating ALL day) I actually lost one pound. By last night, I had lost another 5 pounds. This morning I had lost another 2 lbs. That's a total of 8 lbs over 3 days. I'm thrilled of course, but not sure if this should be happening...

I know you'll ask: No, I haven't been sick at all. I've been eating normally. Also, yes I'm very very swollen, but it hasn't gone down any, so this can't be it. I have a Dr appt on Wednesday, so I just want to know what you all think.

  • Maybe it was water...weight leveling off is a sign your pregnancy is comming to an end. I lost a few lbs towards the end, not 8 in 3 days. whens your next app.?

  • That is a TON of weight loss for only 3 days' time! Even if you were not pregnant and were dieting, it would be considered unhealthy. I think you should call your doc.

  • A LOT OF WOMEN START DROPPING WEIGHT RIGHT BEFORE THEY GO INTO LABOR. YOUR BDY STARTS GETTING RID OF EXCESS FLUIDS.

  • You are probably very overweight and it's no big deal.
