I'm 10 weeks pregnant and gained a significant amount of weight in my first trimester. However, my BMI was underweight (110lb at 5.7ft) before conceiving. Now my BMI is "normal". Does being underweight before make my extra weight gain ok?
Pregnant weight: Absolutely. Those with a pre-pregnancy BMI under 18.5 should gain 28–40 pounds. Normal-weight women (BMI, 18.5–24.9) should aim for 25–35. Overweight women (BMI, 25–29.9) should aim for 15–25. Obese women (BMI, 30 or more) should gain only 11–20.

Almost 18, overweight 240, tried losing weight in grade 9 lost 10 lbs in a month but exams came & gained 7 lbs in a week. Why?
Probably because...: One ate more food or drinks, meaning calories, than one used up during that week. Some women also hold onto water-weight and/or poop-weight during certain days of their menstrual cycle. If those days happen to be at the same time as when she eats too many calories, then the sudden weight gain will even be more striking. To not gain weight, one cannot eat more calories than one uses up! ...Read more

Bad reflux during pregnancy- got better after delivery but came back. Gained about 10 lbs after pregnancy and nursing. so 25 lbs over weight.cause?
Hormones: During pregnancy your body changes and so do the female hormones. The esophagus and stomach also become displaced anatomically due to the developing pregnancy. The sphincter (valve) at the end of the food tube can loosen. It is easier for stomach acid to go back up tube. Additional visceral fat squeezes the anatomy. Pills neutralize the acid and stop reflux pressure into stomach. ...Read more

My OB wants me to gain a minimum of 20lbs during pregnancy (my prepregnancy weight 122lbs height 5'4"). I lost 3lbs in 1st tri, 6lbs total by 15wk, continue losing weight and feeling sick day and night. Should I worry about it?
Yes: Weight gain early in pregnancy is not and should not be the issue so many people want to make it into. As long as you are eating regularly, taking in good quality food in reasonable quantities and taking a multivitamin (prenatal), i would not worry about weight gain. On the other hand, if you are not eating for whatever reason, that needs to change. If it's nausea, seek your ObGyn's help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Baby was born at 40 weeks weighting 7.9 pounds and 20.5 inches I had her two month appt and she's weighting 9 pounds height 22 inches. I am breastfeeding but I am extremely concerned about her weight gain. Is that normal?
Maybe. Maybe not.: It all depends on whether or not the baby is happy and eating well, with normal poops. The baby's pediatrician can graph the measurements on the growth chart, from the visits after leaving the hospital, at about 2 weeks, at 1 month, and at 2 months. That would be enough measurements to get an idea of the rate of growth. Happy, well-adjusted babies are usually ok... but can weigh again in 2 weeks. ...Read more
