Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight after giving birth


Avatar n tn ll lose a pretty significant amount of weight at birth what with losing the weight of the baby, placenta, some blood and lots of water but you won't be prepregnancy skinny right away.
710170 tn?1229237415 i started walking alot more and limited the amount of sweets and junk food and cut out regular soda. the only way pcos will get better is by losing weight. you should talk to your doctor about going on metformin, its the medicine that is typically given to women who have pcos. but in order not to feel really sick while taking it, you must follow a healthy diet. i made that mistake last year and got sick everytime i took it because i wasn't following a diet.
Avatar f tn Good golly honestly I lost about 7 pounds right after baby was born... If you have an iv you will be pumped with lots of fluid during labor so you retain all that weight. But shortly after you will start losing it all. I think I'd I remember correctly I lost about 15 probably in the first week.
Avatar f tn With my first I gained 16 lbs total and lost it all just giving birth and losing the water weight. Was prepregnancy weight 4 days after my daughter was born.
Avatar f tn Most of the mums actually lost yes LOST weight during the pregnany, a few maintained and others gained only a few pounds. One new mum actually weighed 5lb less after giving birth than her initial check in weight. With my 3 children I gained 3-4 stone with each ( 42lb) and have never fully lost it. Am tcc baby 4 now and I intend to lose weight initially as I am exercising regularly and eating healthily now and stay active throughout the pregnancy.
4528412 tn?1357069833 It took me awhile to lose my weight. got the depo shot 6 weeks after birth. BIG mistake! Went 3 rounds after i quit that and lost about 10 lbs without trying. Then after dieting, watching what i eat/ drink, i finally lost all but 10 lbs. i was 120 prepregnancy so i wond up being 130. Grapefruit works wonders and so does gaterade. After gaining some weight back, i started walking everyday. got up to two hours a day. Then i was also drinking atleast one energy drink a day.
Avatar f tn My husband and I were trying to wait longer, but I got pregnant 8 months after giving birth. There are a few women on here who have given birth and got pregnant not long after and their pregnancies are going great. I'm sure it's a lot on your body to get pregnant right away, but it can and has been done. Wait another week to test again and see. But your body is still trying to get back to normal, so that's probably why you are experiencing cramps still.

266539 tn?1281402152 My fiance had asked me how much weight is lost after birth? Like of course how ever much your baby weights but how much does everything else weigh?
Avatar n tn Exercise during pregnancy is geared more toward keeping you flexible and getting you prepared for childbirth, rather than losing weight. Breastfeeding will help you lose weight a lot faster than exercising while pregnant or post-partum. I gained 50 lbs with my first pregnancy (YIKES). I dropped about 20 lbs after giving birth. But got pregnant again and still carrying 50 extra lbs. I'm working my butt off.
Avatar f tn After giving birth, how fast did you loose weight? Once the baby is born, you still have a belly right? Do you still fit into your maternity clothes or will it be too big and loose? And how soon will I need to buy smaller clothes? (I plan on breastfeeding and I hear that helps loose weight also) OH and, what do you recommend to wear after delivery and going home?
Avatar f tn Anyone have any good tips and or experiences for losing the pregnancy weight after giving birth?
Avatar f tn This is the heaviest that I have weighed in all my life. I gained about 100 pounds in the last 5 years, after the birth of my second child. my doctors are telling me that I NEED to lose weight. They recommended the Lap Band, but I cannot afford this so i am going to try and do this on my own. I was wanting to know how many calories, fat, carbs, ect... I should eat to lose weight.
Avatar n tn D. I weighted less right before giving birth during my first pregnancy, than I did before I got pregnant. XD. I'm seeing the same thing happening this time.
