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.

Avatar f tn Any tips on losing weight and tightening up loose skin after child birth?
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 re not, exercise might just do the trick. Walking for 30 minutes a day can be great for feeling better and losing weight.
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 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 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?
Avatar f tn t have to stress too much postpartum for losing the baby weight!
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?
Avatar f tn Hi, so I'm 4 1/2 months postpartum. I have had two normal periods but now I'm 2 Weeks late. I'm having menstrual like cramping but no period. I have lost 45 lbs since I gave birth but for the last month my weight has platoed. I'm not under weight so I know that's not the reason for no period. Is this normal for postpartum periods?
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.
Avatar f tn Have you stepped on the scale to see if you lost more weight during/after birth than you thought you might have? I weighed almost the same after the birth of both of my children as I had prior to getting pregnant - possibly a few pounds less, but not much. If I did, it was water weight... A healthy diet is always the best. That would be one centered around veggies, lean protein, healthy fats, dairy, fresh fruit (but no more than 1-2 servings/day), nuts, seeds, etc.
Avatar f tn After my miscarriage in November I started losing hair like crazy which I assume is the equivalent of postpartum hair loss. But I am pregnant again and I'm still losing so much hair. Could this still just be hair loss from my miscarriage or is there another reason for this amount of shedding?
Avatar f tn hi. oh, losing the baby weight can be tough, but don't feel discouraged. just tell yourself to take it nice and slow, do a little bit at a time and eventually you'll get there. every little effort helps, even if it's cutting out a few calories here, a few there or adding in a 5-10 minute walk here or there.. or doing a set of weights or jumping jacks. just remember that everyone's body is different.
Avatar f tn I weigh about 151 lbs (lost baby weight..down to 142..then put it back on). My 2 month postpartum check up went fine and I had virtually no symptoms. However, at about 3/12 months postpartum, I began experiencing joint pain, sudden fatigue, sluggishness. When I went for another check up, the GP said my thyroid felt slightly enlarged. After blood work was done, the doctor said although my THS was normal, my T3 was low. He said cholesterol was 268.as well. So, he prescribed .
Avatar n tn Is it possible to have postpartum depression before the baby is even here? I feel like I'm losing my mind.
Avatar f tn (Symptoms leading to this conclusion = excessive hair shedding, fatigue and trouble losing weight....uncertain whether this is just a postpartum "norm") All of my labs came back normal, but the doc said my thyroid is enlarged so I was sent for an ultrasound. The ultrasound discovered 3 solid nodules (the largest being 13 mm), one "mildly complex colloid cyst" and "multiple small colloid cysts.
2075737 tn?1379447682 I was wondering if anyone could share some post partum weight loss secrets... (easy exercises, dieting, etc.) That would be easy to maintain with a 2 month old? Its not really that I'm unhappy with my body, I just don't feel as "healthy". Thanks so much!
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 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.
