Hello ladies! I have a question: I am 15 weeks and am trying to see if my weight falls within a healthy norm, and I'm very confused! I've checked 3 pregnancy weight calculators, and they have all given me wildly different results. They all take prepregnancy weights to calculate from.
Says a healthy weight for me know is 125 - 122. (I am 125)
I would try not to worry too much. I lost a little over ten pounds my first trimester, and then gained steadily the last two. Ended up with a perfectly healthy little girl. As long as you're healthy and baby is growing I would try not to fret about the half pounds and such(although I know how incredibly hard it is not to)! Congratulations on your pregnancy BTW it sounds like you're very excited!
i wouldn't worry if ur doctors aren't.
i gained 20 lbs each trimester with both of my pregnancies. i was about 125lbs before i got pregnant with my first and i got up to 186 lbs at the end and with my second i started at 130lbs and got up to 185lbs.
I wouldn't worry if the dr. doesn't. I didn't gain any weight in my 1st trimester and last week I had gained a total of 11 lbs and I was 24 weeks. Everyone is different and as long as your dr. is fine with it, you are fine....
Thanks everyone. I just found those calculators to be worrisome. I'm much better today. I plan on eating lots over Thankgiving and Christmas, so I'll probably pack them on in the next couple of months. :)
Veyr much so, I don't even look at them : ) With my son, I gained 20 in the first trimester, lost that 20 in my 4th month, didn't gain any weight my entire 2nd trimester. In my last trimester I gained 40 lbs total (20 was water weight put on in the last 2 weeks!!) Good news was by the time i went in for my 10 days PP checkup, I had lost all 40 and then some, God bless breastfeeding!!
