weight gain? - Page 2

post #21 of 24
Thanks everybody who answered my question about loosing weight while pg. I was just wondering if there's any scientific explanation as to why it happens to some people. Interesting how you all describe how your body reacts. Thanks again!

Scientific explanation??? Gonna have to ask my doc for that one
As long as I am eating healthy they don't bother me.
*I* am sure that it is due to the extra weight that I already carry and the change in my body chemistry when I am pregnant.


I have a SIL who thinks that what she experienced in pregnancy and birth is and should be the exact same as what every one else experiences... it is soooo frustrating!!!! LOL But then almost everything about her is.

And that's nice! I have heard that some docs go crazy on the subject of weight gain. To me, it's not the weight gain, but the nutrition that really matters. As long as you know you're eating well, you know your baby gets what it needs to grow healthy and strong!

I totally agree that what you eat is far more important than how much you gain. It drives me nuts when i hear of doc's that make a big deal out of staying in the 25 to 35 bracket. A woman told me the other day that she's gotta cut down on her calories so her doc won't yell at her. She looks great -all belly so far at 5 months. I can't believe that her doc would yell at her. I am suprised that so many of you lose weight in pg. I've never heard of that. It is interesting. As for the average 25-35 lb gain - I don't know anyone IRL that gained that little. Everyone i know has been closer to the 50 mark. Obviously some people do but i wonder if it's really an average. I gained 50lbs with my first and in the three months before conceiving again only lost about 20lbs. With this bug, i started around 150 and i think at the last visit i was up to 163 at 18 weeks. I really don't want to gain another 50lbs but i'm not gonna deprive my body of food (even some not so good food) in order to stay thinner. I hope that excersize will help but mostly i'm praying that after the baby is born, i'll be able to lose the weight (hopefully from both pg. and actually fit into my jeans again.)
