Losing weight postpartum

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight postpartum


Avatar n tn I was 98lbs before I was pregnant and 145 at delivery. Have yet to have my 6 week checkup but I can tell I've been losing weight. I'm only 4'10, so thank the lord above that most of the weight was sent to my butt and boobs. I am currently wearing a waist cincher and I can tell that has helped dramatically get my body back into shape.

1523981 tn?1311318595 I had my 35 week check up yesterday and am very shocked and dissappointed in my weight. I was just wondering for those who have had kids, your tricks in losing the weight I need to lose it pretty fast after baby comes to fit into my clothes since I won't have money to buy any new clothes for myself.
Avatar f tn Any tips on losing weight and tightening up loose skin after child birth?
Avatar f tn How are all of you mommy's doing losing your baby weight? My daughter will be 2 months old the end of this week and I am having trouble losing weight. I lost like 20lbs the first 2/3 weeks after she was born and now I haven't lost anymore since. I gained a total of 46lbs so I still have 26 more to go. I was just given the okay to start working out again but I just need to find the time.
Avatar f tn I don't stress I over losing weight but already lost 25 lbs I'm breastfeeding and that enough helped me lose weight. My son is 2 months now. Never worked out. But I do drink lots of water and watch what I eat. Also I wear a waist cincher from Time to time. I'm sure if you worked out a little ( since recommended anyway ) n wore a cincher on a regular basis then you would be back to your body in no time.
Avatar f tn t have to stress too much postpartum for losing the baby weight!
Avatar f tn It works but not alone you have to eat right drink lots of water and also exercise. I do it once and a while but I really don't néed to because I breastfeed and I'm losing weight like crazy I'm even skinnier then I was before I got pregnant. I just know about it bcus I did it when I was a workout addict lol.. it gave me a really nice shape!! Then I got preggo and lost it hah. But I would do it after your 6 weeks postpartum is up..
Avatar n tn i also have suffered from alopatia (bald spots) since i was 5 months along. and ive been losing weight like crazy. im down to 95 pounds and im 5`2! my mind is so cloudy and i dont feel like i can even construct a proper sentence anymore! i just dont know what to do anymore. can anyone shed some light on this for me?
571042 tn?1271447141 The thing I really liked was that as I was losing weight so quickly (with nursing and working out) it kept me smooth and tight. When I was finally back in my regular size my stomach looked beautiful- or as beautiful it could after a baby. You know how plastic surgeons give women girdles to wear after lipo? I think this is kind of the same concept!
Avatar f tn I got a csection a week ago. So I have some questions for you ladies who have had one. My stomach is all lose now, when or will it go back yo normal? Is it going to take like a year? I'm losing weight really fast because I literally have no appetite. Nothing ever sounds good. I eat like one meal a day and i have to force ot down. I know thats very bad I just cant bring myself to eat. Is this huge lack of appetite normal? How long did you have to take your pain meds when you came home?
417536 tn?1211905712 My doctor is insisting that I have postpartum depression, however, my blood test did come back showing that I have a hypothyroid. I am exhausted, truly fatigued, depressed, I have a foggy feeling in my head, can't think straight, sometimes minor tingling in my hands and feet, constipation and can not lose any weight. He put me on cymbalta and ambien and still I wake up around 1 or 2 and can't go back to sleep, I can't even take naps my mind is racing!
Avatar f tn After baby you can loose weight pretty easy. I've been back to prepregnacy weight w/in 4 months. I've nursed my last 2 babies, nursing helps burn calories. However, if nursing U don't want to diet. Don't take any diet pills. Plus when nursing you really do feel hungry. The best thing to do is eat healthy. Protein, veggies & fruit. Workout, but don't over do it. If U workout too much/hard it will effect Ur milk supply as well as dieting or eating less.
504000 tn?1242500793 ~28 Ibs. Only now am I taking measures to actually aid weight loss though.
Avatar f tn -) The weight you need to worry about is the weight after the pregnancy. You are considered postpartum for 6 months after birth while your hormones go back to normal. This is where I get screwed and pack on the weight. :-) I'd rather stay pregnant.
Avatar f tn For the most part, I am beyond exhausted, extremely sweaty, losing hair, foggy brain, sore muscles (especially quads and back), weight gain, etc. Some days I feel pretty good, but other days I feel horrible-- it seems to go through a cycle of a few weeks feeling ok, then a few weeks feeling horrible. When I feel my body going up or down (it feels like a crash when it goes down) then I have horrible horrible headaches that I've never had before.
1666434 tn?1325262350 I'm going to try the postpartum support band, I used it with my last pregnancy and I liked it. It didn't worked overnight but I do feel like it helped out alot.
Avatar n tn Is it possible to have postpartum depression before the baby is even here? I feel like I'm losing my mind.
419158 tn?1316571604 I feel that all women should be tested around 6 months postpartum. Some hair loss postpartum is normal, like kaprovea said, it is caused by a hormone change. Prolonged, excessive hair loss is less normal and might need to be shared with your doctor. blueeyedtabbycat I hope you don't have a thyroid issue. Good luck. And I second the darned hormones comment!
Avatar f tn Last winter I had some serious brain fog issues for about 2 months, difficulty losing weight (not gaining). Then I went on a high-test cold-filtered Omega supplement (PRN Health) and lost about 10 lbs in 2 months. Had dramatic decrease in brain fog. Then weight loss flatlined, some of the brain fog returned (not nearly as bad). Initially, the CNP only tested TPO and TSH. Results: TPO: 858.9 (0-6.8) TSH: 5.5 (.4-3.
Avatar f tn Take the babies weight, a few gallons of water (atleast in my case) which could be 5 to 10 pounds, the placenta which is about 6 pounds according to my doc. You end up losing a lot of your pregnancy weight at the delivery, but the extra pounds shed fast especially if your breastfeeding.
Avatar f tn t wait to go back, breast feeding helps me lose the weight steadily, planning on losing the last 9lbs plus about another 10 I had left over from my son, and I'll be happy!
Avatar f tn I am concerned about losing my entire thyroid based on nothing more than a need for more investigation, especially since the "hot" nodule can be treated with meds or removed on its own. I am obese and have been my entire life and I don't want my efforts to lose weight to be further stymied unnecessarily.
Avatar f tn Although most women with postpartum thyroiditis are euthyroid (normal thyroid gland function) one year postpartum, long term follow up reveals an increased prevalence of permanent hypothyroidism; 23% and 29% at 3.5 to 8.7 years postpartum.
Avatar f tn Have you since recovered from the illness but are still losing weight? I know a lot of people lose weight while sick, sometimes to a great degree depending upon the type of illness, but usually stop after the illness is gone. The weight loss is probably the cause of your delayed period, but your gyno will hopefully shed some light on what is going on with whatever tests she runs.
