1222635 tn?1366396286 Our bodies change considerably during pregnancy. Just like with this pregnancy. I started out at the same exact weight that I started my LAST pregnancy, I've actually gained LESS weight thus far but a lot of the maternity clothes I wore with my last one are too tight now. Just be thankful you fit into your pre-preg clothes so fast.
Avatar n tn This is my first pregnancy and i gained 21lbs and im 28weeks but when i started to gain weight i was so small so cant even tell that i gained so much but i know i will gain more and im so short only 5'2 lol so im just wondering is it hard to lose all the baby weight?
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 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.
7136384 tn?1390142888 Has anyone lost weight during pregnancy? Is it normal and why does it happen? Ive lost 6 pounds since ive goten pregnant i am not 4 and a half months and have a flat belly still i had no nausia at all and eat healthy and regularly.
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 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 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.
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 f tn So I had an ultrasound today again, I'm about 11 weeks. In the last month I've lost about 8 lbs. I was a little bigger before my pregnancy. I haven't been vomiting or anything but I've been losing weight. The baby's heart beat and everything was normal. Have any of you other ladies lost weight during pregnancy without throwing up? I'm kind of worried.
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.
11696213 tn?1420470907 Anyone else losing weight? Im not throwing up or anything. I actually feel fantastic dont feel pregnant at all. Im a bigger girl and have been eating healthy (more then usual) and im dropping weight like crazy. Im down 15 pounds. Should I be concerned?
4347786 tn?1357713425 A LOT of women lose weight in their pregnancy from morning sickness, at this stage your baby is getting plenty of nutrients anyway. Try eating a little here and there, fruits, apples especially, ginger ale and water really went down well for me with my first pregnancy. Make sure you're taking prenatal vitamins so your body is well nourished whether you're eating much or not, and try to stay hydrated, that's most important. I hope you feel better!
Avatar f tn I didn't start gaining until my teen weeks, even then it was incredibly slow. I was so eager to put on the weight lol, but now at 25 weeks I'm a few pounds ahead and need to try to maintain. There are some women, especially if they're over weight that will continue to maintain their pre pregnancy weight well into their pregnancy. I don't think JTS until your second trimester that doctors will be concerned if there's no weight gain.
Avatar f tn If you have extra weight on before your pregnant you usually lose weight at the start or stay the same weight which is what happened me, I was losing weight as he.
Avatar f tn I have also lost 3 inches around my bust but gained 2 inches around my baby bump within the last 2 weeks! I am plus size so losing weight is exciting but is it NORMAL!? I feel fantastic no more morning sickness. So where is it going?
