2 Bumps

Anyone have this happen?

I went to the doctor today and they want to do an ultrasound at my next appointment because I've only gained like 5-6 lbs and I've lost 2-3 lbs since my last appointment 2 weeks ago. I'm almost 35 weeks pregnant and I'm a little worried. Anyone else have this happen to them? Do some women just lose some weight before they go into labor? I didnt have this problem when I was pregnant with my daughter, I gained like 40 lbs with her.

  • Yes and No when I was pregnant with my twin I lost a lot of water weight during the summer. Just driving to the store. But those numbers are no big surprise. I have had all of 8 kids since 1997. You will be alright. Love

  • yes some women do loose before labor, however always best to rule out reason of something causing it other than labor.
