Question by Loren: Lost 5lbs after my “false alarm”….?
Wrong Section, kind of, just want to see if any new moms had this experience?
I am 36+1. On Monday we had a “false alarm”. I woke up with contractions, after about an hour of reassuring that they were contractions I started timing them. They were 10 minutes apart and not too uncomfortable. Hour and half later, they were 7 minutes apart and pretty uncomfortable, then an hour later they were 5 minutes apart and becoming unbearable. So we went into L&D, I was on the machine for 30 minutes and they stopped, sort of. I was still feeling them, but they were not registering. They sent me home. Now, I have lost 5lbs. Any correlation? Is this normal for the last trimester? I have gained 34lbs so far, but now I guess 29lbs? I have an appointment on Friday, just wanted to see what you ladies think! I am not contracting regularly like I was, but still having BH all day. This is my second child, but first “run” in with BH.

I can’t say if it has anything to do with your contractions, but my coworker and friend is currently 36 weeks pregnant and at her last appointment she had lost 4 lbs. Her doctor told her this is nothing to be concerned about. She is very active and health conscious…she eats very well and exercises every single day. (She actually makes me feel ashamed of how lazy and gluttonous I was when I was pregnant! lol)
