Avatar f tn I gained a significant amount of weight with this pregnancy. Right now I am 190 lbs and would like to get to 130. I am nursing and starting to eat right again as well as excercise but don't seem to be losing any weight. I was told it is not good to lose to quickly due to toxins getting into the breast milk. What is a safe amount to lose and how many calories should I be taking in, considering excercise.
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 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.

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 Just as long as being this far along its not more then 10. Every pregnancy and person is different. I had the extra weight to lose. If your worried talk to your doc. Thats the best thing seeing how no one knows your weight. Hope this helps good luck.
Avatar f tn I'm 11 weeks and since I became pregnant I have lost 6 pounds. Keep in mind that I'm not drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes anymore.. but is this normal or okay? With my first pregnancy I was 119 when I got pregnant, and that was 6 years ago. With this pregnancy I was 146 and now I'm weighing 140. I eat constantly but worried this isn't okay. Can anyone help ease my thought process?
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 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 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?
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.
