weight up and down

Postby babyluv51 » Thu Jun 27, 2013 11:07 am

At my appt on Monday I had gained 4 pounds from the previous Monday. But the week before that I gained 0 so didn't think much about it. I weighted this morning and was down 3 pounds from Monday. Now I'm over anaylizing if it means true labor is close!!!! Any one have experience with this? I can't remember from my prior two pregnancies

This has by far been my weirdest weight gain/loss experience in a pregnancy. I never know what to expect when I go to the doctor. Today I had gained half a pound, last time I was exactly the same, time before I was down a pound. Is there thought to be a connection between labor and weight loss?

I always see it listed as a sign of impending labor. Something about a fluid or hormone shift? I remember noticing it upon admission with one of my boys

I can't remember with my last pregnancies. But this time i had 3 weeks in a row when i gained 5 lbs per week. Then this last visit i was down 5 pounds. I won't mind if it meant impending labor! But I'm not holdin g my breath!

I have no idea but I do remember due to swelling toward the end I had one month where I gained a whopping 11 lbs. Yikes!

Thanks Kristen! Well today I'm up 4 lbs since yesterday....and I'm more swollen than ever. Go figure. I have no idea what my body is doing.
