Losing Weight While Pregnant

Me - September 12

I am a bigger girl-190ish and with my last pregnancy I met with a nutritionist who was monitoring my weight bc I didn't want to gain a lot again. I ended up miscarrying at 12 weeks and had lost about 11 lbs, with no trouble at all. My nutritionist and my doc said that an obese woman can have a normal pregnancy while losing weight. Although she still wanted to see me put on at least 10 lbs, she told me of a woman who ended up weighing less after her pregnancy than before, with a health 7 lb baby. Just wanted to know if any one has had this experience?? Had never heard of it before.

i have had fatter friends that have had healthy babies and only gained 11 or so pounds...just make sure you are not "dieting" ..just exercise and eat healthy..and b___st feed..that really sucks away the pounds!!!

I was 172 lbs when I found out I was pregnant and jsut now @ 35 weeks have only gained seven pounds, had my doc appt today. I was not intentionally trying to lose weight it ust happened because I was very active and still am and was eating right. Good Luck:)

I am very skinny and have not gained much weight. At about 28 weeks I had lost 10 lbs from my original weight before I was pregnant. Now I am 34 weeks and have gained about 8 lbs. the doc said not to worry because baby is a good size =)
