Is this ok? I feel like I'm finally probably eating what normal people eat every day, but it's less (and much healthier) than what I previously ate. Is it safe to assume that the baby is getting what it needs? I'm hoping to gain only 10-15 pounds during this pregnancy because of my starting weight.

The key point is you can't starve yourself, you *have* to eat an adequate amount of calories and a variety of foods to be safe. You also don't wanna push yourself too hard to fast working out. If it just so happens that by doing those two things you lose weight then you are ok.

I'm not overweight non-pregnant. And I know that those lbs will come back, and bring friends! lol
They don't call me Big momma for nothin!
I plan on bringing up the weightloss when I see my midwife next week, but I don't think she'll be concerned. I was overweight in the first place, I have it to spare!
