Its normal. I'm at 9 months now - I gained close to a pound a week from the beginning - now I am losing a pound a week. Nothing wrong with it as long as everything else is ok and normal!!

I lost weight towards the end, too. A lot of women do. Your provider will monitor the baby closely to make sure he or she is still growing at a good rate, but they almost always do ok. Do try to reverse the trend for yourself, though. Your baby will continue to grow even if you loose weight, but your body is robbing you of the nutrition you need to keep the baby growing. Labor is really hard work and it helps to be going into in as good of shape as you can manage instead of exhausted from an exhausted metabolism.
