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 I put on 37lbs with my son last year. I lost a lot of it during delivery and the weeks following. Then I did next to notjing and went back to my normal diet and was back to my prepregnancy within 8mths. I just wanted to focus on my baby so didn't worry that much about it. This time ive been more careful tho and have only gained 12lbs so far at 32wks so I'm hoping its mostly baby.
Avatar f tn Its normal for your baby to loss weight with in the first week, i was told the first poo a baby does the black tar, weighs a couple of oz its self.
Avatar f tn sometimes they can pump too much fluids into you and your baby. after birth, the baby loses the excess water weight, which is probably what happened with your baby. ask your doctor about it.
Avatar n tn I was 126 when i fell pregnant the first time. Got up to 155. After the first week post partum i was back to prepregnancy weight (after having a 10pounf baby which helped ;) ). With breastfeeding and good genetics i got down to 110 which im at now with my 2nd pregnancy. My belly was never taut again and still have a bazillion stretchmarks but i grew my son and im proud of them. Hard work, movong and eating healthy, breastfeeding and genetics were what did it for me. Everyone is different.
Avatar f tn Yes it's normal especially if ur on ur last month.. baby is swollowing the amniotic fluid. That's where the lost in weight comes from. We don't produce as much to replace it after a while cuz baby is getting ready for delivery.
Avatar f tn Before i was pregnant i could lose weight extremely fast, but now im worried if weight loss well be an issue after baby is here. How did you guys lose weight ?
Avatar f tn I had the same issue. Reason I was losing weight was very specific to me and not likely the same reason as you. But my doctor recommend supplementing my diet with an ensure/boost to ensure I was getting any missing nutrients.
193609 tn?1292180293 it was my 3rd c-section and they say its harder to loose weight after that but the workout i did was really effective as well as addicting. i am a stay at home mom and i would do it when dd was napping and my other 2 dd's would do it w/ me... its called turbo jam! i ordered it from beachbody.com and i'm telling you its FUN!!!!!!!
Avatar f tn I heard breastfeeding helps you lose weight after you have your baby.. Has this helped anyone?
7136384 tn?1390142888 Oh wow im not the only one the doctors look at me so weird when i tell them im 4 and a half months hate it as long as everyones healthy :)
Avatar f tn So my dr told me that I am losing weight today at my appointment. I know its natural in the first trimester but my dr is concerned and says I need to start gaining. Problem is I am never hungry. I eat a small meal at lunch time and feel completely stuffed the rest of the day/night. Anyone have any suggestions?? I'm already high risk, I don't want anything else to happen too!
1293887 tn?1332702847 Maybe we could encourage each other to exercise, share meal recipes and our weight loss. I have lost about 6 kilos in the last few months but am struggling with the last 7 or 8. I would love to get down to maybe 60-62 kilos. I don't know what that is in pounds.
Avatar f tn Hey ladies I'm 21weeks and keep losing weight. Im always been a petite woman but I was pushing 140 at 6 weeks now I'm down to 127. My doctor a first had no concern and suggest as long as I gain the 25+pounds by the end ill be fine. But now it has become an concern. I feel like I eat pretty good foods and smaller but more meals daily. But I'm not packing on the pounds. This is my second baby after an 8year gap I was 170 having my first at delivery.
Avatar f tn I am a little bit chubby and i want to lose 9 kg in fastest amount of time to still be healthy. So i don't support starving and belive in moderation. I want to lose this weight till the end of 2014 anybody have any ideas?
Avatar f tn I lost 10 pounds In less than a month but i had problem getting food into my system because of all the queasiness but weight loss during the first trimester is normal as long as you make sure to drink your prenatal vitamins, that will help you a lot with all the nutrients you and your baby need during weight loss.
1182418 tn?1292437001 im almost 37 weeks and I am still -9lbs from prepregnancy weight... the dr isnt worried about it bc the baby is growing fine but no matter how much I eat or what I eat ill gain a few lbs and then somehow manage to loose them..
Avatar f tn It is normal to lose around 5 pounds after the first trimester. This is mainly because your body becomes familar with the new hormones and fluids that started grpwng rapidly at first. But overtime it begins to learn how to elevate them out. As soon as you reach your 36th week, which is when baby starts packing on fat, those lost pounds will come back fast and rapidly.
