Ideal weight gain during pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Ideal weight gain during pregnancy


Avatar n tn Ideal pregnancy weight gain is all based off your starting weight/height ratio. If you feel you are gaining to fast maybe try healthier smaller meals and adding some excessive (light eversizs) you can't do a whole lot about weight gain during pregnancy besides earrings right and trying to avoid binging on cravings and instead eat just enough to knock the craving out. Unless your dr is concerened (and they will tell you) just enjoy the pregnancy!
Avatar f tn I'm 26 weeks tomorrow and I've only gained 13 pounds thus far. My doctor always said for me 20-30 pounds was ideal during pregnancy. Anything after can cause complications and/or be tougher to loose after baby. Also a lot of my mommy friends said they gained most of their weight their last month of pregnancy when baby goes faster.
4963258 tn?1395605672 I didn't have any morning sickness but I am on my feet a lot during the day. I can tell my body is changing and growing, just no actual weight gain yet!
Avatar n tn My doctor thinks it's normal. I started off at 114 pounds, my ideal weight. I was told normally I would gain about 15-20 pounds, the most 35 pounds. This is my second pregnancy, and I gained 52 pounds with my son, and Weighed out at 162 pounds. And I was at 21 weeks, 149 pounds. Does anybody think that's normal, because I sure don't.
Avatar f tn This time around im trying not to gain anything. Its normal and healthy to gain like 25-30lbs during pregnancy. So dont let the comments about only gaining 6, 7, 8 lbs bum you out. As long as you feel good and baby is healthy your fine. But you better hope the weight falls off after you deliver or you deliver a 10 lbs baby cuz you will be upset when you leave the hospital and your only like 7 lbs lighter.
Avatar f tn I try to eat healthy with occasional cravings but the weight just sticks to me. So sometimes I feel during pregnancy is inevitable to not gain weight.
Avatar f tn 25lbs sounds like nothing to me, I would be starving. I do plan on getting back to my ideal weight of 110 after this pregnancy but I won't focus on that until after nursing. It does get hard carrying the weight around but I would be throwing up if I didnt eat every 3 hrs.
94902 tn?1330483267 Of course 1) I'm overweight to begin with, so I can afford to not gain weight and 2) I didn't gain much with my last two kids. I gained a total of 12 pounds with my daughter, and 4 pounds with my son. I still have a ways to go, but I don't expect to gain more than 10 pounds or so with this baby.
151154 tn?1208134182 Okay, so I gotta tell you I'm a little upset about my weight gain. I am 31 weeks, possibley 33. My dates may be off. I went for an emerg apt on Tuesday and that doctor told me to cut the calories because I've gained way too much weight. I have gained exactly 30 lbs. I just don't know what to do. I eat 3 meals a day and don't snack at all. I don't eat chips or candy. I do like ice cream alot and have it once in awhile but not really any more that I did before I got pregnant.
Avatar n tn It's the March of Dimes chart on how much weight gain is desirable during pregnancy. I don't see where the doctor got the snide remark, myself. I'm at 30 weeks and have gained 21 lbs. and that hasn't bothered my doctor at all.
Avatar f tn Your midwife or doctor will let you know how much weight is ideal for you to put on during your pregnancy. If you have a normal BMI they say between 11 - 16kg weight gain is fine.. I at 29w and I think I have gained around 10kg so far, but in the beginning weight gain was very slow! At this stage I think your fine :) But remember weight gain is not all you putting on weight.. bub, fluid, placenta all add to it.
Avatar f tn Hi ladies, I am concerned about my weight gain during the pregancy. FTM...I am 15 weeks and have only gained 4 lbs. My belly hasnt grown much. The last sono I had baby was ok and was measuring the size of what baby should be. I am just concerned. Is this normal? Anyone with similar situation as me?
281219 tn?1219118514 Swimming (although not good in winter) 2) Anyone else out there in the reduced-weight-gain-during-pregnancy category? What have you been doing food-wise that's helped? I'm trying to manage the eating-healthy thing, in lots of small portions, but from a nausea perspective all my stomach really wants is loads of comfort carb food. 3) Anyone else out there actually kept pregnancy weight gain HEALTHFULLY under 20 pounds? I'm not interested in any pregnancy dieters...
Avatar f tn His being able to lose weight so easily, eating the same food as I am, eating MORE than I am, really demonstrates that something is seriously wrong with me, and causing me to gain weight, not allowing me to lose weight. As he's lost weight, I've become more depressed. He's so happy, and I'm so miserable. I end up crying whenever we talk about dieting, etc. I HATE being fat! I hate it with a passion. I am the only person in my family that is more than just a little overweight.
Avatar n tn I had a hyster in 05. Same situation as all of you. I have gained 23lbs after working at Weight Watchers and losing 52lbs in 03. I have started researching weight gain and hysterectomies just yesterday. I am a Christian, believer in JC.
Avatar f tn I lost 6 pounds during 6 through 10 Weeks. now I can't gain any weight lol.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure I'm understanding. . So u were over weight pre pregnancy. U gained 30 lbs during pregnancy n is now a total of 70 lbs over ur ideal weight?
Avatar n tn so i took my last dose of depo in march i wonder will i gain any weight back because i look like a child.
Avatar n tn You sound determinded so keep up the determination and you will get the weight gain off in no time.
358971 tn?1330892575 A healthy weight gain all depends on your height and pre pregnancy weight. If you were heavier before you got pregnant then you should gain less weight than if you were thinner. My starting weight with each pregnancy was 128 and I am 5'4. With my first I didn't exercise and lived on egos and top ramen... and gained 80 lbs. I lost it all and then some after 8 months. With my second I exercised and ate healthy and gained 25 lbs. I am now 2 weeks post partum and have lost almost all the weight.
443968 tn?1288616289 I guess that age matter too and also when I became pregnant I was already over my ideal body weight, I was weighting 145 when I my ideal body weight is 125-130. To become pregnant I had to have series of infertility treatment for about 4 and half years, so I was taking a lot of hormones and having to inject them too for a long time, so this made me gain weight too, that is why I was already over when I became preggo, and the first 4 months of my pregnancy I was kept on hormone injections too.
Avatar f tn Its silly to get by an app but its hard not too when it tells you you've gained too much weight. It will continue to say so for bc I always gain a lot during pregnancy but my doctors have never been concerned by my weight gain and that's what really matters.
182767 tn?1317495837 I will be 16 weeks on Saturday, and as of today I have only gained 3 lbs for the past week when I weigh myself some days I gain a pound and the next day I lose it. My pre-pregnancy weight was 118, which makes me think I should have gained more at this point. ( I did not get morning sickness, and my appetite has been healthy. Should I worry??? On a daily basis I do feels twitching and pulling in my lower abdomen, so I am hoping that is a good sign.
Avatar n tn I just went for my 24 week check yesterday from 20 weeks 2 days and i havent gained any weight my stomach is bigger but no weight gain spose i shouldnt complain and i eat a pretty healthy diet with the occasional junk cant help myself.
167 tn?1374177417 LOL Anyway, you should only gain 25-35 lbs the entire pregnancy to go back to pre-pregnancy weight, but of course Breastfeeding will help you loose weight faster too at postpartum. I am 33w3d and have gained 12 lbs thus far, but I am a bigger girl to begin with sooo....each person is different. I would not worry about it to much, as long as you feel ok, your sugar is ok and the little one is growing right on track, keep doing what you are doing. Best of luck to you!
Avatar n tn Even during my most monthly gain during my pregnancy and during THAT I had a total gain of 60 pounds in 10 months!!! I am at a loss. So depressed. So overwhelmed. So beaten down. I just cry at the drop of a hat now........ Is it a side effect of Chantix even though I completed it a month ago??? Is it thyroid issues??? Something else??? I haven't felt so miserable and out of control of my body EVER!!!!!!!! I have been so depressed and can think of nothing else.
