Healthy weight range for women

Common Questions and Answers about Healthy weight range for women


Avatar f tn Healthy weight range depends on your frame size. Here's a portion of the height/weight chart for women: Height Small Frame Medium Frame Large Frame 5'6" 120-133 130-144 140-159 If you don't know how to tell your frame size, look at your hands/feet; are they considerably smaller/larger than others your height? Are you shoulders narrower/wider? Your weight also depends on muscle mass.
Avatar n tn However, we have noticed that she is carrying more weight than I would like for her to. What is the ideal weight range for a child of her height? We also would like to know what we could do to help her reach that weight range? Thanks in advance!
Avatar f tn Shorter women will need to aim for a lower weight than taller women, it means shorter women need to exercise and eat less more than taller women do. Commit to regular exercise to help you get in shape and reach your fitness goals. To lose or gain weight, adjust your daily caloric intake according to your ideal body weight. Step 1 Determine what your goal weight should be.
Avatar f tn Hi there Shai13 and thanks for posting this question! Topic: Is total Body Weight a good measure of health? Yes and no. Although you are really close to the lowest recommended weight range you can actually gain few pounds and be healthier in body weight distribution. Normally when there are recommended weight ranges you should stay in the middle as average.

9038886 tn?1402129326 But I have seen many women carry 'small' and have perfectly healthy bubs within a good weight range. Don't stress. As Emlue said, you shouldn't be concerned unless your dr is. Best of luck.
1019167 tn?1315591948 my baby is growing just fine and is exactly where it should be, so i don't worry about gaining weight too much, just try and make sure I'm eatting healthy for the baby. I'm actually hoping even though I want to be gaining slowly for the baby at this point, that i don't gain more than I lost during this pregnancy. Good luck to every one and remember weight gain is different for every pregnant women and everyone carries it differently and we are all gaining for a good reason!
Avatar f tn She said worrying about weight gain is part of her job and just making sure I stay healthy and follow guide for a healthy pregnancy is my only job right now. That made me feel so much better b.c I started worrying I gained too much. I think the weight tracker on here is a bunch of b.s. and makes us worry too much!!
Avatar f tn I was 97 lbs pre-pregnancy. I'm 24 weeks and I gained about 14 lbs so far. Every time my Dr's office weigh me they say I'm right on track... I'm hoping to gain no more than 25-30 lbs by the end, which is considered "standard" for most women. But since I was "underweight" to start with, I think the range jumps to 35lbs.
Avatar n tn But, Oct 2004 despite my levels being within the normal range, my weight began to rocket. In one year I have gained 42lbs all on my abdomen. I have the appearance of being pregnant but I certainly am not. I must state that I am no couch potato and I am extremely aware of what I eat and I exercise regularly. I have plenty of fresh veg, chicken and fish, homemade veg soup and salads, no alcohol, no cakes or cookies. As you can imagine I am not a happy bunny.
865790 tn?1295204953 My doctor reccommended I go to Curves for Women gym to help me start learning how to exercise. He also gave me a diet plan. I need to lose about 70 lbs to get to the top of my healthy weight scale for my height. I also have really bad problems with depression and anxiety. We're hoping that if I improve my physical health that I can improve my mental health with little or no medication.
Avatar m tn I wonder if the same effects are true for women as well???? vivi, The reference range for total T for my wife in Follicular phase was (20-73) your Dr says 70-130 but is that for a particular phase of your cycle, or is that sort of an all encompassing range. In any event what is most interesting is that the BOTTOM of your Dr's recommended range is essentially the very TOP of the range my wife lab was listed at.

Avatar m tn I have searched on line and usually find healthy patients decades older than me with aortic roots at around 2.5-2.8. I know the normal range is from 2.0-3.8 but is 3.0 normal for a 21 year old? Thanks for your time.
299260 tn?1304219705 I'm excited and nervous about telling my work. In Canada we get a full year off for maternity leave. Awesome for me but a pain for boss to have my position filled for a year. Oh well..not my problem! :) Mommyin09 - Your plan sounds awesome! Get those spermies in there and make them work for that b-ball follie of yours!! I think it is great that you are so relaxed and taking time off. I really think it makes a big difference! Just spend some nice time with Carmelo.
Avatar f tn Some women in the obese range can use pregnancy as a way to overall lose weight by just eating normal healthy diet.
Avatar f tn ) I have quite a few questions and quite a few examples and don't realllllly know where to start but i guess the best place is at the beginning... I am a HEALTHY (for all other means) in shape twenty five year old woman. I work out three to five times a week, am six feet tall and range in weight from 135 - 173 (we will talk about the high range in a bit) So what is the issue?
Avatar f tn You will never be able to tell your child's true weight until you have them, this can be an issue for some women as the bigger the baby, the harder labor is. If your doctor starts to feel concerned about your baby's weight/size then they may suggest a c-section as a larger baby in regular delivery can be extremely stressful. they have trouble telling no matter what so it's nothing to stress about.
Avatar n tn Definitely want the case for me but my midwife told me once that some women gain a lot, some gain a little, and some don't gain at all. There are a lot of women on here who are in the 30 week range who've only gained 6-8lbs so you're prob fine. If baby's growing that's all that matters. Definitely mention it to your doc though just to be sure.
Avatar n tn I did RAI for my thyroid weight loss issue and it corrected the weight loss. I was weighting under a 100 lbs. and still losing by the time of my RAI. If you are still losing weight especially at a fast rate you need to do something else before the weight loss makes you sick and your system starts shutting down. Discuss your issue with your doctor and come up with a better health plan. Good Luck!
Avatar n tn I currently live on an island in the pacific, where medical procedures are a joke. I have been in pain for the last 3 weeks. I had an ultrasound last week, where a cyst about the length of my thumb was found on my ovary. I am very concerned but the doctor keeps giving me naprosyn and saying it might go away. The pain and swelling is getting worse daily. I am very concerned about my condition. I would rather have everything out at this point. Especially since this is not the first.
299260 tn?1304219705 we are suppose to have a room done for the child for when the homestudy occurs, but since we are open for a range of 0-2 and it could be either gender, we won't have the room ready, but we do have to show we have made plans and arrangements to have the room ready as soon as the match occurs. Mommyin10: ha ha ha YES! I am sure your hands are full for the moment! I am sure is weird though, after TTC for so long, getting back with BCP.

Avatar f tn Dont know if its just me, but Im freaking out over the weight gain....Ive always been a healthy eater and have always watched my weight and I know I have been eating a lot more, and more bad foods!! I feel awful!!! I gained 4 lbs so far, Im 14 weeks.....I know it doesnt sound bad, but just looking to see if other people are in my range..... I know a lot of women dont start gaining until the 2nd trimester because they are so sick during the first....
Avatar f tn Most women in a healthy weight range gain anywhere from 25-40lbs. However I don't stress over weight gain. As long as you and baby are healthy its all good!! Plus a friend of mine who is 37 weeks didn't start gaining till around 32. Don't stress! Just make sure you keep eating well.
299260 tn?1304219705 ) I am super excited....DH still has to finish the nursery....some sanding and he's going to paint Saturday and we are staying at his mom's that night so the fumes will air out of the house!! I can't wait to start putting everything together. Well I better try to get some sleep before I have to get up again...Have a nice weekend!
299260 tn?1304219705 I am praying they are both together and happy and healthy. I'll be checking in for more updates as I feel up to it. Keyan-Thanks for the note. As for the OPK's... I always seemed to get positives for a couple days too. It was always hard for me to tell if the pink line was "as Pink or pinker than" the test window. I hate those dumb things. So I spent the weekend laying around mostly. Put a little laundry away, cleaned out the fridge for garbage night...
Avatar n tn In the UK they don't even weigh you at prenatal appts because women gain such widely different amounts and it's no reflection on the weight of the baby. As long as you're still a healthy weight for your height I wouldn't worry especially as they'll be monitoring your sugar levels in your urine anyway. However there's no harm in raising it with your dr if you'd like reassurance.
299260 tn?1304219705 Based on betas, we are thinking we may see two sacs, but I'll be happy with whatever God gives me. Just want a healthy family! Thanks for sharing what to expect. I've heard many different things, but am praying I can see a heartbeat. I think that will help to put my mind at ease a bit.
