Sequences of polynomials that occur as denominators in the two point Pade table for two series expansions are considered in the special case when the series coefficients are solutions of a strong symmetric Stieltjes moment problem. The continued fractions whose convergents generate these polynomials as denominators are presented, together with determinant representations for the polynomials and the continued fraction coefficients. The log-normal distribution is used as an example.
