I'm 5 feet tall with a very small bone structure, and when I'm my most fit and feel the best, I am about 95 pounds. Prior to pregnancy, I was not in my optimal shape and I was 98 pounds. I am getting married 3 months after my baby is due and do not want to gain more than about 15- 20 pounds (I have friends that are healthy and did it and their babies are healthy, so it's not too little).
I was still 98 pounds by week 8. Between week 8 and week 13, I put on 9 pounds! During this time, we had family weddings out of town and family visitors, a sick puppy, an apartment move, so my sleep, excersize and eating schedule was completely awry. I was not getting proper sleep, eating large meals and eating much more sweets and garbage that usual. Additionally, I was getting mixed signals about how to treat my exersize regimen, so was not working out to full capacity and was very naseas and had a lot of morning sickness, that made me constantly eat to wean the nasea. For the past week, I have been getting back to a normal regimen, am the naseau is going away. I am settled in the home and have no more visitors or weddings and plan to get more quality sleep and a more balanced diet. I am hoping to lose all of the fat I gained and remain at 107 pounds until the end of the second trimester. Do you think if I am dilligent, I can remain 107 pounds through 2nd trimester and end the pregnancy at 113 pounds, having only gained 15 pounds? On an average day, I am eating between 1800 - 2000 calories a day, with working out for about 1.5 hours - balanced with strength and cardio.
I am really, really worried and simply cannot gain more than the 15-18 pounds in the pregancy. Can someone please assure me that this is still possible??Any advice would be more appreciated.
