Common Questions and Answers about Why am i losing weight while pregnant


Avatar f tn Hey, I don't know if you TLC channel but I do and I was watching a show about women being pregnant and the woman on there had lost weight as well. I am 16 wks pregnant and I have lost weight as well about ten pounds but I am about 5'10 and weight about 180 and I wasnt sick. But just cutting out the junk food really helps and its unessary food you and the baby don't need.

1795081 tn?1315659921 Why be mad? Sex is meant for reproduction, and you made the choice knowing those risks. If you had unprotected sex that just raises the chances even more. Dreams---while some put a large importance on them---don't actually tell much. If you're scared of something oftentimes you will also dream it. When I was pregnant I kept having nightmares my daughter would be stillborn or something would happen during delivery.

Avatar f tn we were only doing one feeding a day on weekdays, three or so on weekends. when I found out I was having twins I weaned him because I worried about miscarriage and I knew I wouldn't be able to tandem feed him and the twins. it was a nice 15 months though...
Avatar m tn Hi I am 28 years old im 5'3 and 130lbs I have been working out since I was 16. I have a pretty easy time losing weight and getting " ripped". untill i got sick and did not diet or workout! i gained 27 lbs!!! I got the ok by my doctor to diet and workout again..ok with that said I do high intensity cardio and strength train more then 5 days a week. I used to just eat protein bars but I am trying to incorperate some food into it like a turkey burger..etc.
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 f tn I weighed myself this morning and the scale read 105.5 pounds! So, what is going on!? I should be losing weight but instead I am steadily gaining. I am so confused about what is happening right now and I am beyond frustrated. By the way, I highly doubt my weight gain is due to increased muscle mass. It takes females a lot longer than a few weeks to gain enough muscle to account for weight gain especially while on a calorie deficit. I would appreciate any insightful tips.
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 Well I am overweight, I wanted to lose weight before concieving but I am 2 weeks late and might be prego! 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!
3115886 tn?1355757369 Why don't I look pregnant? If you ask my opinion & that of others that know me, I do not look pregnant I just look fat. I am very nervous that something may be wrong with my unborn child. Although, I have been to the ob/gyn SEVERAL times & they keep reassuring me that the baby is fine. But if you look at me now compared to my 2 previous pregnancies, I do not look pregnant. And in the 2 weeks between 11/27/2012 & 12/11/2012 I managed to lose 4 pounds. Why??? Please help me.
Avatar f tn HCG helps maintain a healthy pregnancy weight it uses fat from fat stores as energy. So its usually why women find they lose weight throughout the first trimester/pregnancy.
Avatar f tn I am 20 and 5 weeks pregnant with my first baby. I was trying to lose weight before I found out I was pregnant and my weight just wouldn't move off 11st 6lb, I have weighed myself a few times and have been recording it on here and I now weigh 11st 1lb I only found out I was pregnant a week ago today. Is this normal?
557911 tn?1225980644 I want to lose some weight in hope it will regulate my cycle a bit and maybe help me ovulate a little more regularly. When I usually diet I am a calorie counter, it is the only thing that keeps me on track. I read that it isn't good to have too aggressive a diet when TTC though, so I am afraid of doing more harm than good. Has anyone else been in this position? What is a good amount of exercise and calorie intake without over doing it?
Avatar f tn i am over 2 weeks late and on my honeymoon at the moment. i am having pains as if i am coming on but havnt as yet.
