Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight while conceiving

Avatar f tn I have read about that. Being too skinny or too heavy can affect conception. Honestly though, these are just theories. When trying to have a baby, you feel like the moon and starts have to line up perfectly, don't you? If you feel your weight may hinder pregnancy, I'd try to lose some of it. Add exercise into your daily life and begin cutting calories and eat healthy.

Avatar f tn It depends what your doctor says and how much you weight previous to being pregnant. I lost 15 lbs between conceiving and and 12 weeks pregnant (when I found out) and I am 28 weeks and I have only gained 8lbs back.
Avatar m tn It can also be treated surgically and this procedure is known as drilling. Try losing weight as it helps a lot to normalize menstruation. Try conceiving between 8-21 days of your cycle as it is fertile period. You may also try a pelvic laparoscopy to treat anovualtion if you don`t ovulate. I hope it helps. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar f tn Losing even 10lb can be enough to regulate your cycle and improve your chances of conception. Additionally, losing weight is important for good pregnancy outcomes and also for the baby--traits like obesity and type 2 diabetes can be transmitted to a child from the mother. Sorry to say so, but diet and exercise is your best answer!
Avatar f tn As far as losing weight, I have pcos as well. I've been eating high protein meals and they're four smaller meals per day. It'll keep you fuller longer, will give you more energy, and help you lose weight. As far as conceiving, I don't have any answers for that. I hope this helps!
Avatar f tn I'm really not sure what to do, what to try, who to talk to, what to say... I was diagnosed with PCOS about a year ago, and none of my nurses told me until I looked on the paper and saw for myself.... The stuff they tell you and the stuff you read is more than discouraging about Conceiving and losing weight and being normal. I'm close to giving up.
Avatar f tn u really shouldn't try to lose weight while pregnant. but if u get bad morning sickness u may not have a choice. try to keep ur weight the same or if it bugs u talk to ur doc. good luck dear!
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 f tn I was wondering if any of you have successfully lost weight or stayed the same while pregnant. They only thing I plan on doing as far as losing weight is to eat healthy foods and not to overeat like I tend to do and to also excercise. I know if Im prego I shouldnt overdo myself on exercise but light exercise and walking wont hurt! :) I just would like to minimize the chance of getting gestational diabetes or preclampsia while prego! :) Thoughts, opinions, concerns, etc are all welcome!!!
Avatar f tn Idk your not supposed to lose weight in pregnancy. I mean sOme ppl get really sick and help it but you really shouldn't lose just to lose. You should talk to your doctor about it.
Avatar f tn Diet aids such as Releana are not the best way to lose weight. While you might lose a considerable amount of weight on it, which might be nice, the chances of gaining it all back, once you go off the med are extremely high. I can't think of anyone I've ever known, who would stick to such a "diet" for any length of time.

Avatar f tn s common for woman who are overweight to lose weight while pregnant..
Avatar f tn Hello there, It is good that you have adopted lifestyle changes like weight reduction being one of them. Weight reduction and avoiding stress all are helpful in conceiving in PCOD. Ovulation pain is usually one-sided, sharp, severe which may occur just before, during, or after ovulation. A bit of cramping about eight to ten days after ovulation can actually be a sign that you are pregnant. These pains are called implantation cramps.

Avatar f tn I don't think you have PCOS, if its only one cyst on each ovary thats not PCOS... even tho the pain, the 30 Lbs lost & low insulin are symptoms from it. I have PCOS, I Don't get pain from my cysts only when one of them ruptured & I had to get a Laparoscopy, instead of losing weight I gained weight & I don't have any insulin problems or hair loss, everybody reacts different, but if I was you I would look for a second opinion... Good Luck!
