Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight during the first trimester


Avatar f tn That happened to me too my first trimester my dr told me as long as u keepin your food down its ok you will gain it back most women do lose weight in first trimester i did til i was almost 20 weeks and im 33 now and gained my a whole 30lb back
Avatar f tn Yes it's normal to lose weight while pregnant. I lost weight the first trimester and my doctor didn't worry as long as baby is growing. Just eat healthy and stay active! !
Avatar f tn No it's normal at during your 1st trimester for your weight to be down and up.. Keep taking your prenatals and whatever you could keep down make it healthy.. I lost 13 lbs from my 1st and 2nd trimester.. If it gets worse your doctor will help you don't worry.
1415818 tn?1291134343 I lost about 5lbs in the first trimester. But, I have gained 13lbs in the last 13 weeks. I wouldn't worry about it unless your doctor/midwife mentions it at your next appointment. Eat well! Best wishes.
Avatar f tn You probably gained mostly water weight In the beginning and now are starting to lose it....its normal to lose weight during the first trimester and most women lose at least a few pounds, but others will gain more In the beginning and less later on! Just try to remember that the baby needs no more than 300calories a day and that's actually not until the 2nd and 3rd trimester, during the 1st you don't need any extra calories per day!!
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.
Avatar f tn m 23w4d and was still down about 7 pounds on my last visit, according to my first recorded weight at the OB. My GP has recorded me losing some weight before I knew I was pregnant.
Avatar f tn Some gain and some lose during the first trimester. But the 2nd and third trimester you should gain. So worry about that later. Your dr will tell you if you are losing to much or gaining too much and vice versa.
Avatar n tn No Im 32 weeks pregnant I lost weight at the first trimester and gained weight at the middle or my second trymester its normal that happens sometimes you will gain and lose weight during your pregnancy.
7136384 tn?1390142888 i lost sooooo much weight in my first trimester. i was always so super sick! like even seeing any type of food id have to run to a bathroom and puke. now I'm 24 weeks almost 25 and gained one whole pound! lol I gained just what the baby weighs but my belly is noticeable and people believe I'm pregnant now.
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.
Avatar f tn I lost weight in my first trimester during my first pregnancy. His pregnancy I didn't lose any but I didn't gain any until about 20 weeks.
Avatar f tn Um I just turned twelve weeks and it looks like im losing weight instead of gaining but my belly is getting bigger should I be concerned about this
Avatar f tn Its Normal To Lose Weight During The Beginning Of Your Pregnancy , It Happened To Me As Well

Avatar n tn I am 9 weeks pregnant and this is my first pregnancy and instead of gaining weight I am losing weight. I haven't had any nausea or vomiting in the past 2 days but I am still losing weight. I am scared that this could affect my baby. Is there something wrong or is this normal ?
Avatar n tn Yea I lost 23 lbs during my first trimester, try eating carrots n other veggies n fruits if your nasuated it really helped me
Avatar f tn ve lost 5 pounds since finding out I was pregnant. Like clockwork I lose a pound a week, it stays the same weight for the week and then the next Sunday, again, a pound less.
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..
10913038 tn?1424227711 It's not safe to try to lose weight during pregnancy. During the 3rd trimester you're supposed to consume about 400 more calories a day than you normally would and this is the time that the baby is rapidly gaining weight, so most women gain weight too in the 3rd trimester. It's good to be healthy but you shouldn't be trying to lose weight, not saying that you are.
Avatar f tn Has anyone not gained any pounds at all during there whole pregnacy?? Just a bit concerned. I don't vomit I eat little snacks during the day and I feel great. But just not weight gained. So just wondering if it seems ok?
Avatar f tn I lost 11 lbs during the first trimester, and I'm 15w+2 now and I've lost a total of 14 lbs. I had no appetite for the longest, but now that I do, I'm still not gaining either. And I am FULLY embracing "eating for 2" this week... And nothing. I feel you. But as long as your baby is healthy, and you ARE eating sufficiently, you should be fine.
805878 tn?1243615673 ) My blood pressure is fine, the fetal heartbeat is great 142, the baby is moving LOTS and the fundal height is measuring 21 so that is bigger then my weeks. They did do bloodwork to check my iron, glucose and thyroid. We are hanging in there and just waiting for our ultrasound on June 23rd, hoping to see if it is a boy or girl!
Avatar f tn re like me though you may without trying. I lost 20lbs during the first trimester when I was pregnant with my daughter, and 16lbs during the first trimester with this pregnancy. just from nausea and lack of appetite. I gained a little back 2nd trimester with this pregnancy, but only like 7 lbs and I've been steadily losing again so chances are I will be much lighter after pregnancy than I was you never know!
Avatar f tn Depends on how far along you are.. a lot of girls lose weight in the first trimester due to morning sickness. I personally lost 10 in the first 12 weeks.
Avatar f tn I've been the same way - 9 wks. My certified nurse midwife said that just eating what you can keep down is good enough (food, drink, & supplements). And as long as your weight doesn't drop down a lot then it's normal to not gain weight until the 2nd-3rd trimester. But obviously if there's any concerns then check with your doctor first.
Avatar f tn My friend was 235 and by the time she was done being pregnant, she weighed 175 and had so far, kept the weight off. I lost weight in the beginning of all my pregnancies.
