So at my 24W appointment last week I had gained 30 pounds on the doctors scale, and 12 pounds since my last appointment. Yikes! The doctor was very upset and wants me to see a nutritionist and start weighing myself everyday. I was really embarrassed about it and cried. She's also going to make me take the 1hr glucose at 24W (took it yesterday) and again in four weeks.
I haven't seen a nutritionist yet, but have been making a concerted effort to cut back on the sweets and on high-calorie 'healthy' things like OJ and granola. Anyway, I"ve noticed the scale has been going down since my last appointment. Not a lot, but maybe a pound or two. I know some of that is water weight and um not being constipated as much anymore (TMI, sorry), but still it concerns me because losing weight seems bad for baby.
Is it normal to lose weight when eating healthier and pregnant? Or should I had an extra healthy snack everyday?
