Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight in first trimester of pregnancy


621803 tn?1302888341 Hi Ladies, I was wondering how many of you experienced weight loss in your first trimester. I know it can be fairly common if you have bad morning sickness, but I haven't thrown up once, and very rarely feel nauseus at all, so I know its not that. I'm actually hungry ALL of the time! I feel like I'm always eating! I'm not trying to lose weight, although I have been eating a little healthier than I used to, but I wouldn't say there's been a big difference in my diet.
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 f tn with all four of my pregnancies I list weight in the first trimester. My doctore said that if I gained no weight at all but the baby was healthy was all that mattered.
Avatar f tn It depends on what your starting weight is and the way you are losing it. If you have a higher starting weight and you are losing weight because you are eating healthier and exercising than your okay. If your doctor says its okay, you should be fine. Plus you have more than half your pregnancy ahead of you to gain some of that weight back. Don't stress, i am sure you'll be fine.
1415818 tn?1291134343 Not at all loosing weight is totally normal in the first stages of pregnancy, I mean you loose your appetite and are being sick, im15 weeks and still loosing it, I'm not expecting to gain anything until the very end so I wouldn't worry, how far are u?
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 t worry to much just try to eat what you can and drink lots of water. I was the same way in my first trimester lost 17lbs.
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 I only threw up 3 times in my first trimester but consistently lost weight. About 10 lbs, and I've only gained 4 back at my last visit. I'm 26 weeks now and my dr was not at all concerned about the weight loss.
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 In the beginning of my pregnancy I lost weight instead of gaining it then when I got to my second trimester I started gaining it
Avatar f tn I lost 12 pounds in my first trimester then gained 8 pounds and just found out i lost 5 pounds in just 2 weeks doctor says is normal because baby shifts position and he/she takes your weight/nutrition from you if he/she needs it. But 100% normal :) good luck!
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 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 Yes, I suffered back pain in first trimester with my first child.
Avatar f tn m 25 and this is my first pregnancy. I usually hear of people losing or not gaining anything in the first trimester, because I have felt Great my whole pregnancy, (no morning sickness) I have continued to eat normal which btw is really healthy!!! The app said "excessive" under my weight gain chart lol. How did you all fair in the first trimester??
Avatar f tn With my 1st pregnancy I lost 15 pounds in the first trimester due to morning sickness. My Obgyn told me not to worry. Baby is pulling in all the nutrients it needs and that is partly why you feel so miserable and lose weight sometimes. My daughter was born 7 pounds and healthy. I ended up gaining what I lost plus 20 by the end of my pregnancy. You and baby should be just fine! Hope you feel better though, morning sickness is so miserable.
Avatar f tn ( I was 78kg and now im 107 and im 37 weeks pregnant but I put on all of my weight in the first and second trimester hardly anything at the third which is when they say yoy gain the most.
Avatar f tn ve weighed about 159 and have been maintaining that, which is a 29 pound difference from my pre pregnancy weight. I went to the doctor the other day and had lost 5 pounds. Is this okay for my third? I eat but I honestly am just not as hungry this last trimester like I was the others, probably mostly because I feel I hardly have any room for food. Anyone else lost weight in their third tri?
Avatar f tn Hi m 29 weeks pregnant mashallah and last mnth my weight was 66 and this month my weight is 64 i lost 2 kg .. Has anyone experience this? should i worry ?becoz its my first pregnancy ..plx help is dat normal?
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.
Avatar f tn I understand the morning sickness is no joke. My first pregnancy my morning sickness was so bad I had it for 4 months straight.l'm small as well n honestly every women carry pregnancy different. I didn't gain a lot of weight in my first trimester but eat what u can just to put something in your stomach and drink water stay hydrated as much as u can. Until the morning sickness passes. I didn't really start picking up weight until my second trimester...
Avatar f tn It is common in the first trimester because nausea, vomiy ting and sometimes lack of appitite
Avatar f tn This is my first pregnancy and I've been losing weight instead of gaining with a lot of vomiting and sometimes stomach cramps persisting headaches is that normal?
Avatar f tn Normally weight loss would be a bonus for me but in pregnancy its scary. Ive been suffering from hyperemesis 9wks now and ive lost 20lb since being pregnant! From being overweight Im now at the other end of the normal bmi range and worried about my baby. Seeing the midwife this morning and have a strong feeling im going to end up in hospital again as im struggling to keep anything down despite trying medication.
Avatar f tn for the sake of making this question less complicated, I will admit my weight. I started at 146 pounds before getting pregnant. I'm now in my 13th week. During the first trimester I packed on 13 pounds, so I quickly went up to 159. Over the past week or two I noticed the number on the scale dropping and itS now at 155. so I'm basically losing weight, or I might just regulating Myself?? my instincts are telling me it's no big dealbut should I pass this on to my OB?
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
