4715985 tn?1371582997 I havent actually puke so far during the pregnancy and ive gained my normal 5 lbs during my first three months. But in between week 12 and week 13 i lost 4lbs? Im pretty sure im eating as much as i did during the last couple of weeks. During my bad days of nausea i cant fit much but its getting better. Im just wondering if there would be a reason why i would lose weight in only a week? Im so scared that something bad will happen, is this normal?
Avatar f tn I'm almost 19 weeks. I've lost quite a bit of weight during the pregnancy. Around 23 pounds actually. I'm starting to worry the baby will be malnourished. I'm trying to eat more but I get sick. Still haven't felt movement either.
Avatar f tn As long as the doctor says it's okay then it should be fine. I'm also in the same position, with losing weight during pregnancy. I was 260 a year ago and I got down to 200 about 2 days before my positive pregnancy test. But I'm still considered obese at 5'5 so I'm planning on gaining 15 pounds during this pregnancy which my doctor has also approved.
9397704 tn?1403544160 My doctor's guidelines is 25 to 35 max weight gain throughout whole pregnancy. I gained a bit more than that but my lovely doctor's said nothing. The real issue becomes losing weight on the other end of the pregnancy. It was easy after my first but harder after the second. ugh.

Avatar n tn You don't really need to gain if you were over weight when the pregnancy started. Eat healthy meals, normal portions, exercise moderately. You may lose weight naturally as baby takes up some of the excess calories you were consuming. I'd consider yourself weight neutral right now and just eat healthy with proper portion control and not worry about the end result of your weight.
Avatar f tn I lost weight during my first pregnancy so I would say its normal :) dont worry.
Avatar n tn I havent heard of any diet plan really. But generally while your pregnant u tend to gain weight. Some women lose weight at first but usually doesn't last long before long they gain weight to because the baby is bigger.what I would suggest is just getting on a really healthy eating plan and light workouts that way u can manage ur weight.
Avatar f tn I never threw up during my pregnancy and lost about 7 pounds. I didn't start gaining weight back until my 3rd trimester. Completely normal.

Avatar f tn I talked to my midwife about weight loss during pregnancy or just not at an average weight.
Avatar f tn Is anyone else losing weight? I am 38, 23 weeks along and overweight. My first 12 weeks I was very nauseous, but tried eating small amounts often so baby got adequate nutrition. Well I am not sick anymore and I am still losing. 14 pounds so far. The baby is very active, I just want to know if anyone else is experiencing this.
Avatar f tn I know it is advised that during a pregnancy is not the time to diet or lose weight. I'm not necessarily interested in losing weight but this is my forth pregnancy and my last three ive gained 100+ pounds no matter how hard I tried not to. Ive lost it each time and right now I weigh 135 lbs. I'd like to take one oxy elite pro per day to keep my weight gain within the normal range for someone my size.
