I'm 24, 38wks pregnant. 285lbs currently. 5'6" tall.. this is my 3rd pregnancy. I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes at 34wks. I haven't changed my diet, haven't had any problems! being weighed this week I was 7lbs less than last. same scale at the doctor. I don't understand!

should I be concerned?
I know its good that I'm losing weight in general but while pregnant isn't that bad...?

if your doc isnt worried, i wouldnt be.  The baby will take what it needs no matter how it may jeopardize your health.  There isnt enough information about being obese and pregnant but I know there was a recent sudy about obese women safely losing weight while pregnant.

I lost 15 lbs during my pregnancy. I never gained. Then I lost more of course after delivery. I'm down 35 lbs total.
