When I was pregnant, I was without energy, bored, a little depress and I was staying all day on the sofa watching television and eating all the time bread and pizza.
I gained a lot of weight. If you're eating like I was, try to slow down, but eat some of all.
My babies are very healthy.

Losing weight willingly during pregnancy is never a good idea. Just continue any exercise routine you had (don't start a new one) and eat healty. I weighed as much as my husband when I was full term and that was after losing weight from morning sickness. My daughter came out perfectly healthy and I had no complications what-so-ever during my pregnancy.

In my opinion I don't think it's safe to try to lose weight while pregnant. :)

Losing weight during pregnancy can be dangerous to your baby and unhealthy for you. Just eating lighter, veggies, fruit, lean meat and cutting out sweets can help you not continue gaining at the rate you are now. Walking is also a good way to lose unhealthy weight.



Also, you might want to make sure there is only one baby... hmmmmmmmmm.

I gained 75 pounds with my daughter.. I personally wouldn't try to lose it til after... Or talk to your doctor about the foods your eating

If you are tiny to begin with then you shouldn't panic. I gained 65lbs during my pregnancy, but thats because I was only 103lbs to start with. At one point I gained 17lbs in less than a months, but my doctors realized it was for the health of my baby. Just maintain a sensible diet and a little pregnancy pilates doesn't hurt. Gaining a little more weight in the beginning might just be your body's way of setting up a good enviornment for the baby.

When I was pregnant i was very sick for the first 4 months and actually lost 35lbs. When I was able to eat again i ate healthy, Fresh fruits and veggies, stuff like that. I still gained over 50 lbs in the last 5 months of my pregnancy. I had an 8lb 2oz very healthy baby. Don't worry about the numbers. Just concentrate on how heathly it is for you and your baby. Remember your baby eats what you eat.

Don't worry about losing weight right now...If you begin losing weight, you are taking nutrients away from your baby that it needs...I agree with Crystal, talk to your doctor, and don't worry about losing weight until AFTER the baby is born =) ...Exercising during pregnancy is very important...It helps keep you healthy, AND it helps speed up delivery (which is a plus!)...

When I got pregnant I was already over weight, and I ended up getting gestational diabetes. To keep that under control they put me on a diabetic diet. It wasn't hard I just cut out alot of sugars and starches (pop, candy, pasta, rice, etc....). It didn't make me lose any weight, but it did keep me from gaining alot of weight.

You should talk to your dr. I gained very little weight until I reached 7 months and my dr put me on bedrest for that reason. I was wearing my regualr work clothes. He wanted me to gain more weight. 2 months later she was only 6lbs 5 oz and 21 inches long. To keep from gaining too much extra weight, everything in moderation and eat every 2-3 hours, 6 meals a day (think nutrition) and everything will be fine. Yoga is the best!

It's best to talk to your doctor about this, but I don't believe that you should try losing weight until after the baby is born. But if your still wanting to keep it under some control, I ate lots of fruit when I was pregnant with my first child, & didn't gain as much as I did with my second baby. I also believe that some hospitals or gyms offer prenatal yoga & exercise programs that are safe. But I really recommend before doing anything to talk first to your doctor.
