I heard that when your pregnant you lose sum weight well your belly will decrease a little before you gain all the extra weight. Is this true? If so how fast do you lose that weight, and when will you start to notice the extra weight coming on.

    No, it’s not true.

    You only lose weight if you have really bad morning sickness and cannot eat or can’t keep anything down. And even then, it’s not much–a couple of pounds over the first trimester.

    Some women might lose a little in the first couple of months, but most do not. Most women stay at their normal weight and start to gain slowly, a few pounds in the first three months. It’s different for every woman. If you are trying to figure out if you’re pregnant, analyzing your weight isn’t going to tell you anything. Take a pregnancy test.

    every woman and pregnancy are different. i have not ever lost weight, even when i had severe morning sickness with a prior child. weight gain usually starts around the end of the 3rd or beginning of the 4th month.

    Some people have weight gain from the very beginning, even thoug it is mostly water weight from bloating.

    I lost about 7 lbs in the first 8 weeks from having really bad morning sickness and by the time I was 20 weeks I was back at my pre-pregnancy weight. In total I have now gained 24 lbs more than my starting wight and have about 5 weeks left.

    That might happen for some people, but that doesn’t mean it happens to everyone. Some gain weight from day one, some (like me) don’t gain anything at the beginning, and some lose weight. Each person is different, so there is no way to know.

    Most women don’t lose weight while pregnant unless they have morning sickness. And if that happens it’s typically just the first trimester and the average weight loss is four pounds. Usually by the second trimester women start gaining weight and by the end it’s possible to start losing weight again.

    I’ve never heard of a lot of people losing weight. If you are overweight you might lose “fat” and gain baby weight if you start eating healthier. I noticed that I couldn’t lose weight no matter what I tried when I was pregnant (before I knew I was).

    That is a silly question. Why would you want to? You don’t lose weight unless you have morning sickness and you soon make up for it. After three months everyone will be able to see you are pregnant. It isn’t healthy to mess with diets and to be concerend with weight loss when you are having a child. It’s not fair on the baby.

    You gain weight very slowly the first 5 months, then it kind of stays the same until about 8 months, then you start gaining a pound or 2 every week till birth. It’s hard to see the extra weight you’ve gained until after the birth because the baby is taking up all the room. I wouldn’t worry about losing any weight until after the baby is born. Especially if your breastfeeding, you will lose weight faster, and best of all you won’t need to diet.

    WE’LL I HAVE TWO KIDS A GIRL AND BOY AND ANOTHER LITTLE GIRL ON THE WAY. WITH MY FIRST (GIRL) I HAD REALLY BAD HEART BURN AND GAINED LITTLE WEIGHT FOR THE FIRST SIX MONTHS, THEN GAINED A LOT IN THE LAST MONTHS,. AFTER I HAD HER, WITHIN TWO MONTHS I LOST ABOUT 30 POUNDS. JUST AVOIDED BREADS, GREASY FOODS, SODA AND ANYTHING WITH FLOUR. WITH MY SON, I LOST 7 POUNDS FOR THE FIRST 5 MONTHS DUE TO REALY BAD NAUSEA AND VOMITING. BUT THEN GAINED A TOTAL OF 15-18 POUNDS TOTAL FOR PREGNANCY. I LOST ABOUT 25 POUNDS TWO MONTHS AFTER GIVING BIRTH, AGAIN BY JUST WATCHING WHAT I EAT. NOW I CURRENTLY EXPECTING ANOTHER GIRL, AND I’VE GAINED ABOUT 25 POUNDS.. AND I’M DUE ANY MOMENT… SO THAT’S MY INPUT… EVERY WOMAN BODY IS DIFFERENT… HOPEFULLY I LOOSE THE BABY WEIGHT AFTER SHE’S BORN….. GOOD LUCK.

    Weight Loss After Pregnancy – Simple Steps

    1. Realistic Expectations: This is where most people fail. If you’re serious about losing that baby weight you need to be realistic AND patient. It takes 9 long months to gain that weight. You aren’t going to lose it in 2 months. It takes longer to lose weight than to gain it. Set a goal of 10-20 pounds per month depending on your current health and weight.

    2. Breastfeeding: This will cause you to burn a lot of calories. Weight loss will be a major advantage of breastfeeding. Do not reduce your food intake too much while breastfeeding. Since your body is burning all those extra calories you still need to replenish some of them.

    3. Smaller & More Frequent Eating: This may sound counter intuitive but split your 3 meals into 5-6 smaller meals. This will not only help keep you from getting hungry but increase your body’s fat burning.

    4. Healthy Foods: Included in these foods should be things like whole grains, fruits, veggies, nuts, legumes, fish and a multi vitamin. Also be sure to increase your water consumption. Aim for about half your body weight in ounces.

    5. Exercise: There were probably a lot of activities you couldn’t do while you were pregnant. Try not to exercise just for the sake of exercising if you don’t have to. That gets boring for most people and they quit. If you can, try to find an activity you enjoy doing just because it’s fun. That way you will stick with it and ensure losing weight.
