Avatar f tn Thank you for the reply, I've not actually had any morning sickness. But I can't wait to feel my bubba :3 Hopefully i will lose a little weight. If not will strata going swimming once bubba is here.
1931709 tn?1335833095 I am 21w5d and have not gained any weight. I eat and take my prenatals every day, but still no gain. My doc said the baby is growing and she is measuring right on for how far along I am. I was considered obese before I was pregnant (178lbs).... Do you think its bad that I haven't gained anything? This is my 4th pregnancy, and I gained with all the first 3.
Avatar f tn I was 268 beforw i got pregnant im 35 weeks now and weight 281 ive had a very healthy pregnancy no complications no gestational diabetes no high bp everything has went very smoothly everyone is different but dont worry yourself :)
Avatar f tn I'm 6ft and my current weight at 37 weeks is 414...anyone else consider obese while pregnant? If so are you having any complications?
Avatar n tn I lost weight with all my pregnancies and I'm 228lb and I'm 27w1d and I haven't gained any weight yet. This is my 5th baby. But I recommend not trying to lose weight but try not to gain too much weight.
Avatar f tn Prior to pregnancy, I have been trying to lose weight to no avail. Now that I am pregnant, I seem to be losing 1-3 pounds a week! I am not exercising as much as I tire way easier than before, I am drinking the same amount of water as before, and I think I am eating the same amount of food (I don't want to eat more as I can only gain 10-15 pounds during the entire pregnancy), so how is this possible? Please help.
Avatar m tn I would say that it may be harder for her to become pregnant being obese and losing a little weight may increase her odds of conceiving. This is going to need to be a lifestyle change and not just temporary. You should also do the healthy eating with her (even if you are not obese yourself) that way it encourages her to eat that way and also lets her know your behind her 100%. It also, like I said before, needs to be a lifestyle change so that is why you should probably do it as well.
Avatar f tn I know several plus size pregnant women who lost significant weight during their pregnancies. As long as your baby is fine and your doctor isn't concerned, I would try not to worry about it too much. The most important thing is to try to get nutritious foods down and fluids down whenever possible.
Avatar f tn This article is from a well known hospital and they state that losing weight when obese does indeed reverse some of the cardiovascular issues someone may have due to obesity. https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/news/media/releases/losing_weight_sooner_rather_than_later_gives_the_best_chance_of_reversing_heart_damage_from_obesity_according_to_study earlier is better 9as in the younger you are) or the sooner the better. Yes, some damage could remain but this gives someone the best chance.
Avatar f tn Is there possible to eat healthy and loose weight while pregnant?? Have you guys figured out any tricks?? Or even just maintaining weight?? I just want to stay healthy but being pregant makes it impossible to maintain or loose weight!!!
Avatar f tn I've lost loads of weight since I became pregnant. I am not purposely losing weight (if you're wondering) I have been trying to gain weight but im just not gaining. My pre-pregnant weight was 243 and now I am at 213...My stomach isn't losing weight its growing with the baby, but I'm losing weight ever where else. Is this normal or even safe. I don't go to the dr until Jan 28 because medicaid finally came through and all. I am really worried about the baby.
Avatar n tn If you were my patient, I would advise you that purposefully losing weight while you are pregnant is not recommended. That is not to say however, that you must gain. In fact, for overweight to obese patients, gaining as little as 10lb for the entire pregnancy is an excellent goal. Similarly, we don't recommend suddenly beginning a new intense exercise program.
Avatar f tn I'm overweight and second pregnancy I reallyhhaven't had any problem so but I'm only 18 weeks...but I'm losing weight and not really gaining it my ob said that sometimes it happens that way..but the baby is fine and heartbeat is on point...
Avatar n tn I doubt that any doctor would support a weight loss goal of 25 lbs. per month unless you would be morbidly obese. Most of the weight you would lose would be water weight anyway, and it would come back quickly. I recently consulted with a weight loss doctor who prescribed a sensible diet (moderately low carb) and the medication Adipex. That combination was magic for me. The diet resulted in rapid weight loss, and the prescribed medication made it easier for me to follow the diet.
Avatar f tn I weigh 244 and have not gained any weight. I'm 14+3. I too am considered 'morbidly obese' however my doc said to not even consider losing weight on purpose while pregnant. I am blessed with a Dr that doesn't give me grief abt being a big girl.

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!
443878 tn?1205103196 I gained 90 pounds when I was pregnant, got gestational diabetes, turned into type II diabetes after I gave birth. I have tried every diet imaginable, and have not been able to lose much weight at all. I lost a few pounds when I started metformin medication, but have now stabilized again.
Avatar f tn I'm obese. Not showing at 18 weeks. Losing weight. Lost 23 lbs. Dr doesn't want me to lose or gain. Diet has not changed. Don't know what to do myself. Would love to look pregnant because I certainly feel pregnant.
