Ideal weight in pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Ideal weight in pregnancy


Avatar f tn I'm 4'9 and my pre pregnancy weight do vary between 100-115. I was 115lbs pre pregnancy with this baby. Is my weight okay? Should I be looking at taking in more calories? Do I need to be gaining more? And does this mean that Kora isn't growing normally? Just need a little advice. I know the normal weight gain is 25-30 pounds for a woman who is at their ideal weight before pregnancy.
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 I am currently 26 weeks and have lost about 5 pounds. I have been staying within 6 pounds of my weight from before pregnancy. My Dr is not too worried about it since the baby is still growing and is healthy.

155461 tn?1207868371 com/play/WRHhX8hs - This presents two doctors talking about the importance of cleansing. We live in a toxic environment! It's around us and in us! We can't avoid it! These toxins are foreign in our bodies. Our bodies protect themselves by using fat cells and extracellular water to enrobe/wrap around the toxins. Cutting calories or 'dieting' doesn't work! As long as toxins continue to be in your system, fat and water will continue to 'hang on' to these toxins.
Avatar n tn i may be able to help you. my friend lost her pregnancy weight in 3 weeks. i have recently gone from a size 10-12 to a size 6. if interested go to or call me for questions 2103808555.
1355431 tn?1369978906 I am really worried because I am already the unhealthy weight of 196 before pregnancy. I am 8 wekks now. My doctor said I should gain around 20lbs. To be that seems like alot since Im already so over weight. What do you think?
15480 tn?1302533402 To a point, I agree with the posters who say that their bodies need to gain some weight. But gaining in excess of 25-30 pounds for the entire pregnancy can put you at risk for several serious pregnancy complications. Good luck to all. The original post is several years old, so if anyone wants to bring up weight or other issues, its always best to make a new post.
367974 tn?1286554758 I am on the straight and narrow though now I have this little angel in me! apparently my ideal weight is 52kg's but I dont want to be that thin id look like a wafer biscuit! i have pcos and i am insulin resistance. i am a relatively strong and fit person though and I eat well. I have had laprascopic gastric banding and I have had some success. I havent been as succesful as some people whove had it but it at least it keeps me in check.
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 n tn I have tried doing all the things that I did to lose the weight in 2002 but the weight is not going anywhere. Could it be that my body is tired of the yo-yo effect and it is impossible for me to get back to that point. For me my ideal weight is 145, but my family have commented on the fact that I do not look healthy at that weight because of my broad shoulders. Could you help me. My stomach looks like a 5 month pregnancy and my boobs are just too much.
349463 tn?1333575176 Yes the last pregnancy I did a little bit better afterwards with losing the weight. I would take my baby and baby carrier and go for walks.
Avatar f tn I've gained 46 I'm 34&4 I don't get it either I'm not going over bored eating I'm eating like I always have but I'm gaining like crazy & cried today when I realized I've gained almost 50 pounds..
7876352 tn?1403096059 Second pregnancy you tend to look pregnant sooner.
4963258 tn?1395605672 How much weight did everyone gain in their first trimester? I'm a FTM and I've already gained 8lbs, just entered my second trimester (14wks) today. It's hard to go for walks as well, whenever I walk just up the road and back at least one side of my hip will start hurting and then I have to lay with my feet up. Any one else have that problem?
281219 tn?1219118514 3) Anyone else out there actually kept pregnancy weight gain HEALTHFULLY under 20 pounds? I'm not interested in any pregnancy dieters...totally not going there, but if you've eaten healthfully for two, kept your vitamins and nutrients intake at appropriate levels and STILL kept weight gain down, please give me advice!!!
7058746 tn?1393439020 So I was losing weight up until a month or so ago. I'm 27&4 today. Pre pregnancy weight was 154. Beginning of May I weighed 158. I was at the regular doctors today for my cold which turned out to be a sinus/ear infection. I was weighed and I am 166.. Am i gaining to much and to fast?
Avatar f tn I gained 38 my pregnancy. You are almost done! You're doing good! That's a very healthy weight gain!
Avatar f tn I gained way more than you at that point and kept bringing it up to drs because i ate normal like pre-pregnancy and still do and never overate, never had cravings and worked out since day 1 and they never seemed to take an interest in my weight concern at 2 different dr offices (i moved mid pregnancy). I am 38 weeks and dont have gest. diabetes, but baby is measuring big and i am retaining a lot of water apparently so i guess that's part of it.
Avatar f tn I know a lot of women don't like to talk about this, but I'm curious how much weight was gained in your pregnancy? I'm 29 weeks and have gained a LOT! With all the cravings and such it's gotten a bit outta control. But, even when I was eating a lot better, I was still gaining quickly. I go to the Dr in a couple days and I know I'm up almost another 10lbs so she's going to say something...again.
Avatar f tn I think 30 pounds is probably the ideal weight gain for most pregnant women.I lost ten pounds, then gained 20 back with my daughter. With my son I gained ten pounds total. Overall, my daughter was my healthier newborn. My son was a month early and was in the NICU. Don't get discouraged or upset over your weight.
Avatar f tn I noticed if its not there Ideal pregnancy, we are in the wrong. At least that's how mine are. Im 32 weeks and gained 25lbs. Of course I lost like 30 from morning sickness.
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.
Avatar f tn 7 so if this boy is like his brother's then he could be big too.
94902 tn?1330483267 i was in really good shape before i got pregnant, so i feel every friggin pound!! ugh. I'm totally jealous of you, Tasia!! I am not huge, but I feel soft everywhere and i feel like i'm bulging out of my clothes. I'm very self-conscious about it (which isn't helping our sex life, lol). We had just been on vacation (that's where we knocked me up) and when we came back from eating all the decadent food, I weighed 142 (I'm 5' 7.
151154 tn?1208134182 ) I was suprised at the end of my last pregnancy, I was putting on weight like crazy, and I am a petite, normally thin, 5 foot 2. I put on like 10 lbs. in the last 2 was like 35 lbs. all together or close to. I felt like a beast, especially since everyone said I would only gain 20 lbs. Just keep eating healthy and you will be fine! I had a very healthy little girl and my stomach basicly deflated after the birth, It was a lot of fluid weight..
