Ideal weight pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Ideal weight 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 16 weeks and still under my pre-pregnancy weight (only by 2lbs). My midwife assures me I will pack on some pounds soon. I'm sure you will round off those numbers later on.
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.
1161604 tn?1388879198 the scales fluctuate from 15 1/2 stone to 17 1/2depending which scales i use(its wiered i know) and my ideal weight is 11 stone!however i only look like i weigh about 13 stone so im not huge!my breasts are huge(36H-36J depending on the make of the bra) and i stopped breast feeding about 3 weeks ago but am still lactating!cld the size of my breasts be making my weight higher than it actually is and is the milk making my weight fluctuate as my breasts fill up and empty slightly!
Avatar n tn If you plan on breastfeeding that is also suppose to help with post-pregnancy weight loss. Just try to take it easy and enjoy the rest of your pregnancy.
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 I've gained almost 25 pounds and I'm only 27 weeks. It really sucks because with this pregnancy I have been careful about what I eat and the weight is still piling on like in my first pregnancy (I gained 65 pounds) Sometimes your body decides to get fat and you don't have complete control over it.
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 f tn If you were my patient, I would advise you to try to get fit and be at least close to your ideal body weight. Also, quit any bad habits such as smoking or drinking alcohol if you have any bad habits. Make sure you don't have any sexually transmitted infections too.
1343283 tn?1300901864 right now i am like 8 pounds over my initial first appointment weight....but baby is like 7 lbs.......typically for me it was/is ideal not to really gain any weight...cause i am really big..... Hope your appointment goes well...Ask these concerning questions when you go and inquire about foods to try and avoid....For example. My aunt, healthy guru freak that she was gained like 10 pound sin first 2 months......
Avatar n tn 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. I gets to be a bit embarassing at times and I believe it is preventing me from moving ahead in my job. Although people do not talk about it , I believe that physical appearance hampers people's career. P.S. the more I try to diet , the more I crave sweets.
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.
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.
7876352 tn?1403096059 Second pregnancy you tend to look pregnant sooner.
Avatar f tn By the last 2 months or so you'll be gaining a pound per week. Just be careful I don't think its too much personally. If your pre pregnancy weight is normal you'll gain more weight than an over weight person who will gain very little to nothing.
Avatar f tn I would say that's a lot to gain at what you are. Ideal weight is 25 to 30 pounds. But you were very thin to begin with so I think you are just fine! Your body needs fat for energy for your growing baby with my last son I started at 118 and when I finally had him I was 142.
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..
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?
4963258 tn?1395605672 I'm 13 weeks, and I am still at my pre pregnancy weight. 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 f tn I gained 38 my pregnancy. You are almost done! You're doing good! That's a very healthy weight gain!
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!!!
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 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 was pretty heavy a few years ago then lost quite a bit of weight but I've gained it all back + with this pregnancy. I hope I can get it all off quickly after the baby's born. Not looking forward to the appointment today because I know she's going to give me some grief for my weight being up...again. (sigh...
