At the doctor's today, I was weighed in.
"Huh," I said out loud. "I've lost weight since I was in here last time."
The physician's assistant kind of laughed and said, "Yeah, you sure did. Just a couple of pounds, though." She fills out the form and is cheerfully talking to me, clearly not worried.
"Um... is it normal to lose weight this far along? I'm supposed to start gaining like crazy right now, I thought."
"Oh, it's normal," She replied. "It happens sometimes. You've probably been trying to eat super healthy, right?"
I debated how to answer that question.
Finally, I just said "Yesterday, I ate three doughnuts and then in the afternoon like a pound of chili cheese fries. That was it."
There was a long, long moment of silence.
"...Chili cheese fries?" She asks, her voice a little plaintive.
"They were delicious."
One more long beat of silence.
Then she shrugged and said, "Fair enough."
