I was gaining well all throughout and now I am losing weight. I have no idea why!! Has this happened to anyone else? I am worried because I don't want a small baby.

It's fairly common to lose a little bit in the first and third trimesters.

Really? The OB acted pretty concerned. She just told me to eat more and to not exercise which I don't actively do anyways. I am high risk with 2 previous babies. This one everything has been great, I am just super paranoid because it seems to good to be true.

Well with THAT being said, it might not be a common issue, if your OB seems concerned. I don't honestly know what's going on, sorry. Good luck though.

Thanks. Well I go back in 2 weeks so for now I will just try and be more mindful of what I am eating. Maybe get a bit of ice cream :D It does help put my mind to ease knowing that it can be common. Everything else looked great so hopefully it's nothing.

With my first I gained most of my weight in the second trimester and it slowed down to almost nothing in the 3rd, I think I gained 5 to 7lbs during my 3rd trimester and one appointment I even lost 2lbs. I lost my appetite for a few weeks during that time but my doctor was ever concerned. I gained a total of 32lbs with her. I am 26 weeks with baby 2 and I've gained 15lbs so far so I'll see what the 3rd trimester has in store for me this time around!
