I am in a weight loss group from before I was pregnant. I'm only still in it because its paid up for another year and I am the assistant weight recorder in it. Of course I have a doctors note saying I'm pregnant and can't be losing lots of weight so my weight doesn't help or hurt the group. Anyways, my sister is in the group as well, as the official weight recorder. She is on my case about my weight constantly! She is always telling me you need to be gaining, which I know that and I try to gain the pound a week I'm supposed to but it doesn't always work. When I do gain it bums me out because I really don't want to gain too much during my pregnancy but I know I need to gain so I get over it fast lol. My sister is so dramatic over me getting bummed. But before I got pregnant I trained myself to be bummed when I gained so its hard to stop getting bummed. I get bummed get over it and don't intentionally try to lose, I try to gain. This week I lost 2 pounds, which shocked me because I have been packing the food away and not really exercising. My sister got all upset with me. Idk what to do. I am 28w4d so I know I need to start gaining. It how can. Gain without gaining an over abundant amount?

Eat healthy... If you are over weight already u cn always speak to ur doctor he ll give you proper diet plan according to ur needs... Do take prenatal tablets as they will help baby... Try doing small amount of exercise again ask ur doctor before attempting anything...

I'm 22 weeks today and lost 10lbs in my first trimester. I've only gained 1 back. It not so much what's on the scale as what's in your tummy. A LOT of women start eating healthy when they find out they're pregnant and naturally lose weight. My daughter is right on track, but the doctor said I'm personally losing weight.

Your baby gets first dibs on any and all nutrients.
