  • I'm not quite 17 weeks pregnant, so I know I haven't started the major weight gain part of my pregnancy..BUT there are a few times that i weighed myself where I had lost a few pounds instead of gaining. It kind of worried me but my OB said losing a couple pounds was normal in some pregnancy's, and as long as i am staying healthy by walking daily, eating right, going to all my OB or doctor appointments and taking my prenatals..everything will be ok! Hope this makes things better :)
