At first, about 10 pounds is water weight and then baby weight is however much the baby weighs if that makes sense, so basically when you have the baby, you should lose however much they weigh+10 pounds water weight+about 5 pounds placenta weight...the rest is just cushioning I guess!

If you look at any week by week thing on your babys developement it should tell you how much the baby weighs at that time period, like mine says my baby is about 3 ounces right now at 3 months

lol ya I figured the weight of the baby because obviously that differs I just meant placenta and stuff. Im 20 weeks and haven't changed anything about eating and have actually cut down on my workouts a LOT but I still haven't gained weight (not that im complaining lol)... so I was wondering if i lost weight but it evens out with what the baby/other baby stuff so far.
