I'm figuring one of the scales has to be off, but even so, I don't see how I managed to lose weight, since my scale was reading 146.8 on the morning of my appt... right around what the one at the OB office was. So... I'm up anywhere from 12 to 15 lbs.
My midwife's scale was evil - it was consistently 6 pounds heavier than my scale at home...then I realized that I weighed myself at home first thing in the morning my birthday suit, lol. Whereas at the midwife's office I was weighed fully clothed (including boots) and in the I go by my morning weigh in just for a) consistency, and b) my peace of mind

Same here - my midwife measured my belly and said I was right on track and she wasn't concerned since all my weight appears to be for the most part in my belly area (and boobs!)...but I agree with trying to eat healthier, I should probably start being a little more restrained in my cookie and icecream consumption.
