weight gain?
I'm 23 weeks pregnant and I haven't gained any weight. I was overweight to begin with. But at my last doctors appointment (which was my first because I had to get married before I could get on insurance....long story) I found out that I had dropped 20 lbs. My tummy is getting bigger (i feel like my tummy has gotten huge) -- my clothes don't fit, but lbs wise I haven't gained. Is that ok? 1 socialistcoffee

I have heard that it is ok for a woman that is overweight (before pregnancy) to not gain weight when she is pregnant. i'm not sure about the reason. It would be a good idea to ask your doctor though. 3 caveybaby

I am also pregnant for the 3rd time and was overweight before the start of the pregnancy. I have been to a dietician and it is considered unhealthy to pick up less than 6kg throughout the entire pregnancy whether overweight or not. It would be a good idea to let the doctor check whether the baby is picking up weight, as this would be an indication of a healthy pregnancy. 4 preggies

I have a good friend who was slightly over weight when she got pregnant with her second child, she lost 25 pounds with in the first few months. she eventually started to gain weight from the baby but never reached the weight she was to begin with. She ended up having a beautiful, healthy 8lbs oz baby! Now, she is a mother of two and looks wonderful! 7 Nicks0219

Weight gain become one reason. You have too much weight then it is much difficult for you to become a mother. You have to lose some weight. One of my friends were also getting weight. She was also unable to become a mother. Then she tried to lose some. Now she is fine. Living a healthy life. She have 2 daughters now. I am infertile. I was the player. I put on some weight to become a mother. But still didn't find any luck. 8 BerylSaer

I'm 21wks and have gained 18lbs!! As long as Dr. doesn't get onto you then its fine.. my Dr. from BioTexCom clinic hasn't said a thing about my weight gain but like you I kind of thought it was a lot. Although most of it is my hips, thighs, butt, and boobs. 10 Deepika

Pregnancy is a time where the expectant mother tends to gain weight throughout the three trimesters, so it is important to know how much weight is normal during each trimester. Pregnancy weight gain has a direct impact on the health of the mother and the developing baby. At the beginning of pregnancy, check your Body Mass Index (BMI) and continue a healthy weight gain schedule accordingly. During regular antenatal checkups, your gynecologist will check the body weight which will help to suggest a good diet, fitness regime and nutritional supplements. Keep a check on the normal weight gain and do not stress about your weight. Be active, eat healthy, sleep early and follow your doctor’s advice to keep your pregnancy weight gain on the healthier side. 11 Neha5

Hi I would suggest do not worry about the weight that you are gaining during pregnancy. That should be the least of the worries right now. You should be eating well and ensure that you get all the nutrition that you need at this time. The baby has to develop well and the right amount of care should be the priority at the moment. 12 Neha5

Hi there. I tend to understand your situation to be something normal. People react different to pregnancies. Not all pregnant women gain weight. For you, i dont think if there is a problem. If you could be loosing weight instead during your pregnancy then you could worry. Your body might have reacted differently instead. Not every pregnant woman should increase weight. This is a myth that has been in existance for long enough. We should try to eliminate this mentality and educate others too. even after pregnancy there are others who will increase weight. Others instead there will be no change of weight while others reduce in weight. Just try to consider our bodies have different reactions. I hope this did help you. Otherwise, you can consult a professional. I am also proud of your prrgnancy, congratulations. All the best. 13 Noreen

I hope you are fine. It’s ANNA h here. I am from NEW YORK.In most cases, this is how the process unfolds: “Through an IVF cycle, you take the egg from the mom and fertilize it with the dad’s sperm, then transfer the embryo into the uterus of a gestational carrier,” explains reproductive endocrinologist Naveed Khan, MD, of Shady Grove Fertility in Leesburg, Virginia. The gestational carrier then carries the baby to term, and mom and dad resume their roles as parents after the baby is born. So a gestational carrier has no biological relation to the child.Making sure you have a well-rounded diet is really important during your pregnancy. Eating healthy meals will allow you to gain the weight you need to provide crucial nourishment for your child.Putting on weight that is unnecessary is easy to do if you are eating junk food that is traditionally much higher in sugar and fat.Watching what you eat and the sources of your foods and known side effect to every single thing you put in your body are mandatory. Everything you consume gets passed on to your child.If you're eating unhealthy food when These calories should be attained by eating a diet of grains, dairy, protein, fruits/vegetables and healthy fats and oils.Limiting processed foods, sugars and extra fats can help you attain your goals.Are you having troubles gaining weight? Your doctor can help you establish the eating habits you need to put on pounds if gaining weight is a challenge for you.A good place to start is to shoot for an extra 300 calories each day. Here are some suggested snacks to help you do just that.Three tablespoons of olive oil added to breads or vegetables,One scoop of ice cream,A peanut butter sandwich,A large bowl of cereal with low-fat milk,Three handfuls of nuts,One bar of dark chocolate,A serving of fruit cobbler,Substitute three cups of juice for three cups of water,Three slices of cheese,One slice of quiche,A cup of chili and beans,Eight ounces of chocolate milk,One avocadoSpeak with your doctor about what your personal pregnancy weight goal should be; and remember, everyone is different. What your sister’s doctor suggested she gain may not be the right amount for you.that overweight women gain between 15 to 25 pounds total during pregnancy (again, your provider will tell you what’s right for you). The IOM has found that plus-size women who stay within these weight-gain guidelines have the best chance of delivering a healthy birth-weight baby and also reduce their risks for delivering by C-section.Another good tip: Try to eat every three hours or so to keep your energy level up.If the opposite is an issue for you, and you’re starting your pregnancy as a plus-sized woman, you’ll also need to chat with your doctor about how best to traverse pregnancy weight gain two pounds a week in their second and third trimesters, says Daina Kalnins, a registered dietitian at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto and co-author of Better Food for Pregnancy. "The most common misconception women have is that they need to gain weight right away," says Kalnins. "But how much you should gain depends largely on your pre-pregnancy weight." 14 ANNA h
