Out of 5 full term pregnancies....I lost approx 10 lbs in the first trimester with EACH one. It wasn't due to throwing up though, it was from food aversions, smell aversions and just FEELING nauseaus
thank you guys! That made me feel a lot better. I guess we just need something to worry about! My friend here at school is worried because she feels like she's gained TOO much weight..we never win!
i also loose my weight on my first trimester..but now a little by little my weight cameback again...i think its natural at first trimester you will loose weight...dont be so worried...gudluck...
Weight loss in early pregnancy is common.
I had lost about 60lbs from between the time after I had my daughter, till my daughter was 7 months old and I found out I was 12 weeks pregnant again. And I lost another 10lbs or so after that. [[I was also breastfeeding at the time ONTOP of being pregnant. Breastfeeding can make you lose alot of weight if you're exclusively breastfeeding and watching your calorie intake.]]
My doctor ended up putting my on prescription strength prenatal vitamins once I got over my 20th week cuz I had weaned my daughter from breastfeeding, and I was still losing weight and she was a little concerned.
I've had nausea ALOT this pregnancy, but I've never thrown up yet, so there really was no explanation as to why I was losing weight even after I stopped breastfeeding.
I eat healthy. I was taking vitamins.
It just happens.
I've gained a total of I think 18 lbs this pregnancy and I've only got 5 weeks left till my scheduled c-section, or sooner if I go into labor before then.
My doc's pleased with the weight gain and isn't concerned anymore.
Pregnancy isn't how alot of people tell you.
"You're eating for two." is a false statement.
You only need about 300 or so extra calories a day which can be as simple as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a handful of sun chips, when you're pregnant and some women really don't even bother with that, they just continue eating like they normally eat.
My diet hasn't changed at all personally.
You'll gain the weight when you gain the weight.
Unless your doc is concerned, I wouldn't worry about it.
I didn't lose, but I didn't gain... at 29w I'm only at a grand total of 6 1/2lbs gained and my dr's aren't too worried about it.
I've lost seven pounds in my first trimester and am now 15 weeks and only gained one back so far. It's very normal and nothing to be concerned about.
I always loose weight in my first trimester. Nothing to be concerned about. You will gain it back and then some.
i only threw up 3 times in my first trimester and lost 10 pounds my doctors weren't concerned..
