I am feeling fat as hell and literally nothing fits not my rings nothing. I've gained everywhere but my family on both sides aren't overweight and never kept pounds after their pregs. And they had babies up till their forties... Don't be concerned.
438165 tn?1205232076 While the risks are increased, I have seen many woman go on to have healthy babies in their forties. Look at Hale Barry, Jennifer Lopez is near 40, the list goes on not to mention women I have personally known. If you're truly nervous about it, the decision is up to you. It has been done and will continue to be done. Besides, think of all the medical advances we have now. Did you have any trouble with your previous pregnancies?
Avatar f tn I'm in my mid-forties and have an active sex life with my husband of 16 years. I've always been able to reach orgasm through sex - never a problem. Until about 3 months ago. Nothing of significance in my life has changed - in fact, it's all pretty good, except for in this one area. My husband is concerned and so am I. This has NEVER happened to me before! I'm in good health, work out, eat well but know how to indulge. Is this hormonal? Will it pass?
Avatar f tn I'm a man in my mid forties, have had a bulged L4/L5 disc for a year. It flares up once in a while. Last Dec, I was also diagnosed with gastritis and am taking lansoprazole . At the beginning of March I had a full blood count which showed low WBC (2.8) and low neutrophil count (1.3). Another FBC at the of Mar showed WBC 2.7 and netrophils 1.2. My Dr sought opinion from  Haematologist and was told that its normal for me. I guessed that is because I'm of African origin.
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 My average healthy weight is 60kg and I'm 161cm tall, now I'm 75kg which is overweight. I just finished the 3rd month yesterday. Is there a way to lose weight without hurting the baby? Cuz it's not healthy for me to stay in this weight while I'll gain 12kg more while pregnancy. Nothing hard or hurtful, walking is hard here since I'm in saudi Arabia and the heat reach 40c. I'm looking for healthy diet that won't hurt the baby if I do it.
Avatar n tn Safe weight loss is considered to be 1 to 2 lbs/week (1 lb = 0.453 kg), so the most you should lose in one month would be about 10 lbs or 4.53 kg... You'd need about 7 weeks to lose 15 kg or 33 lbs, safely, if you work at it diligently.
Avatar m tn I was wondering if any of the prescriptions I take, may be making it harder for me to lose weight? In fact i've gained about 45lbs since last year. This year some of my prescriptions have changed. I am now taking 60 mg of Paxil last year it was 40 mg. I am taking lisinopril and diclofenac and 50 more mg of atenolol. I believe I am getting about the same amount of exersise as I was last year if not more. Thank you.

Avatar f tn I cannot exercise a whole lot do to a medical condition where I suffer from daily headaches and pressure in my head. Losing weight will actually help this condition. Besides my overall health, this is why it is so important that I lose weight. I have lost weight in the past, but always seem to gain it back. I think that I was not eating enough calories. i was staying at about 1000 a day. I lost 70 pounds, but gained it all back plus a lot more.
Avatar f tn Hello there, It would be really dangerous to you to lose that much weight, ie 15 lbs in 2 weeks. A good amount of weight is about 2 lbs per week. The middle of August is about 4 weeks away. Even in 4 weeks, unless you go on what I would call a drastic diet or a starvation diet which would probably put your body in shock, you can't lose 15 lbs in a healthy way. Some people might think that if you drastically reduce your calorie intake, the weight will just fall off you. This is not true.
Avatar f tn Its good you've set a goal and are looking to find out how to achieve it! However losing 15 pounds in a month is unrealistic and unhealthy. Did you know it takes about a year for your body to adjust to losing 10 pounds? It's important to remember weight loss is a marathon and not a sprint. In order to lose weight and keep it off, you shouldn't look at it as weight loss but a way to become healthier!

676912 tn?1332812551 Does anyone have any tips for losing baby weight? It's been 19 months since I had Elijah and I've got 30 lbs left. I gained about 40 and only lost 10 after I had him. Most of it I gained in the last two months and I thought it was from water weight because I swelled up so much.

Avatar f tn I'm a little confused. Is anyone else losing weight? I'm 11weeks 5days. My weight before pregnancy was 180. 6weeks prego my weight was 168, 8weeks was 161, today i'm at 155. I thought in the beginning it was from morning sickness and being actually sick, but for 3 weeks i haven't had a lot of morning sickness since i started drinking sprite and i haven't been sick. I thought for sure by mid 11 weeks i would have gained at least a pound or two. Am I the only one losing?
Avatar n tn As the first comment correctly stated, losing weight fast doesn't last and leaves you weaker, which you don't want to be if you're getting ready for basic training. Why not wait to join the military until you're ready?
