    Default Late pregnancy weight loss

    Hi

    Just wondering if anyone else has experienced weight loss in the last weeks of pregnancy? I was weighed just over 2 weeks ago and have lost 1.75kg. I've been eating the same and doing nothing different - just wondering if i should be concerned? I'm 40wks.

    Thanks

    Yes I lost 2kg at 38 weeks and it wasn't food related.I delivered a healthy baby girl at 40 weeks

    I lost 1.5kg the last week before having DS. I was told this was normal and many women lose a little weight before delivery. I was told because of changes in hormone levels you lose some fluid and it is an impending sign of labour. Goodluck!

    Ive just lost 3kg in a couple of weeks too, I put this down to different scales, but thought 3kgs was a big difference! Yay to it meaning labour is close, Im ready to go NOW, but im only 38 weeks!

    I always lose a bit of weight in the third trimester because I just don't feel as hungry as the second trimester and I have little room for food in my squished up stomach.

    All 3 of my pregnancies I lost weight right at the end- I put it down to not eating much because of the heartburn. In the 3rd trimester I would fluctuate up and down, but all 3 times I was exactly 2kgs heavier when I delivered than I was at 28 weeks.

    I lost 6 kgs in the last week of pregnancy. Apparently its really common to lose up to 1-2 kgs in the last fortnight but 6kgs freaked everyone out! I was already 9 days overdue so ob said they would induce in the morning, bub must have heard as I went into labour that night and bub was born at 9am the next day. Perfectly healthy 3.4 kgs, no complications, straight forward vag birth.
    He was born exactly the minute I was booked to turn up at the hospital.
    Funniest thing is I got a narky call on my mob from the admissions clerk asking why I wasnt there to be induced!!

    Good luck
