I lost 28 lbs with last and he was 9 lbs 6 oz and was born 2 weeks early.  I have only lost this pregnancy but weight bounces back and forth.  No gain yet, belly is big and baby is measuring right on.  everyone is different.

Oh my goodness that's a big baby!!! CONGRATS I lost a little weight with my daughter who was born at 8lbs 2oz... I just hate getting lectures from my doctor and I feel like if I'm not gaining, my baby might miss out on nutrients :(

Literally your baby takes everything from your body that it needs, you could gain 50 lbs and still have a 3-4 lb baby.  THey harassed us at the OB last time every appt, made me see a nutritionist everything.  This time they are very relaxed and even though I am seeing someone locally for the diabetic nutrition they do not harass me this time. THANK FULLY!!! My first son was over 10 lbs, then ollie over 9... hopefully this baby not so large.

Yeah! As long as babies are healthy and developing properly I don't see a reason for doctors to hassle anyone!

Peanut butter, cottage cheese, almonds, healthy carbs- stuff like that! If baby is growing properly I wouldn't be concerned at all! Less you have to lose after baby comes :)
