I understand completely with my 1st I gained 50lbs but I soon lost that after her. But with my second I only gained 30 an I was still trying to lose weight when I found out I was pregnant with my son. An with him dr didn't want me to gain weight at all. He was very disappointed when I gained 25 lbs. An unfortunately I didn't lose any weight after him. He is now 15 months old an I just found out I'm pregnant again. I'm so excited but super worried about gaining weight this time I'm 9 weeks tomorrow an I've only gained 4lbs but he really would prefer if I didn't Gain any. So I'm just trying to eat healthy an trying to go for more walks. My dr said a minimum of 1hr walks a day will help alot he said I may even lose weight. I hope this helps u
I feel you I gain 40 with my 1st 80 with my second and so far only gain 5 this time around
You should be alright, you did it before. Keep eating as healthy as possible, exercise as often as you can. This app says I'm overweight.... But considering I was a solid 125 lbs of lean muscle, 14% body fat... I'm 151 right now.. I'm not worried even though the dietician and Dr doesn't know my build and think I'm gaining too much. Its folly that they still go by bmi... So unreliable.
I know it'll be hard with another lil one to get in more exercise after having the baby, but set some reasonable goals to help you get back into shape. If doing at home, the kids came participate too. Its kind cute to hace them mimic you. A spartan race in six months after birth for me is my goal, but I'm out there.
My aunty does 5ks with her husband and two kids in the stroller...she's a size 6/8... Not sure if that's overweight or not, maybe since she's shorter than me. She sure as heck has more endurance than me since I'm not a runner.
I spaced the link below, so copy and paste it and delete the space. They like not including links in my posts :/
Hope that link makes you feel better. 30lbs from the baby, placenta, fluids, etc is a lot
If you've lost it before, you can do it again. I agree with the others, just stay focused on eating healthy and also getting enough sleep if possible.
This is my first pregnancy and I feel my doctor is a bit strict with me about my weight gain. She told me by now I should have only gained 9 pounds. I've gained more than double that and I'm 25 weeks. I'm not looking forward to my appointment.
Everyone's body is different and how we respond to each pregnancy is different too.
i have been kinda freaked out by the weight gain thing also. you just have to keep telling yourself that you're pregnant and gaining weight now is totally different than gaining weight while not pregnant. it serves a totally different purpose and it's definitely not all fat. most of it is probably fluids (blood, amniotic fluid, water retention), the placenta, and the baby. try to be kind to yourself. i know it's hard. i've started telling myself that i'm "getting fluffy" instead of getting fatter. it helps me mentally. you've already had two kids do you know that you'll lose at least ten pounds within 24 hours of the birth. try to eat as healthy as you can and worry about the rest after your baby is born. i'm sure your doctor will let you know if you're gaining too much too quickly. hugs!
Hi Cooterwife7654, Pregnancy wright gain is such a tough thing for most women. MedHelp.org has a guide on it in the Pregnancy Information Center and Week 17 of our I'm Expecting app: https://www.medhelp.org/pregnancy-health/articles/Your-Pregnancy-Weight-Gain-Guide/2204
