Has Anyone Lost Weight During A Healthy Pregnancy

Greetings, I am a certified nurse-midwife. I am researching weight loss during pregnancy in women who started out their pregnancies overweight. I have noticed that several of my clients who were overweight began to lose weight in the earlier part of their pregnancy, with many of them ending out not weighing much more than their starting weight by the time they had their babies. I am studying the cause of this weight loss, which I believe from talking with my clients may be connected to changes in diet during pregnancy. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has started out her pregnancy overweight, and actually lost weight in the earlier part of the pregnancy, while still eating normally (not weight loss because of excessive morning sickness, etc.) Please reply to my email at: [email protected] Thanks! Janelle

Well, I have a 2 year old and when I got pregnant with her I wieghed 185. When I delivered her I weighed 179. I was loosing an average of 4 to 5 pounds a month in the beginning. Towards the end I gained about 5 to 6 pounds. My doctor kept sending me for level 2 ultra sounds because of this and because I was measuring smaller. Well she ended up being 7 pds and 3oz. Perfect.

Before I got pregnant, I was between 222-224. At 3 months pg, I was at 229-230. I just started my 5th month today and I am at 223. I may still loose more, not sure. I can keep you updated though.
