I’m not saying no one can give you advice or opinions, but this kind of question should be asked to your midwife or OB.

I would definitely talk to your doctor about this because your body and pregnancy is different from others

just keep up exercises and have a healthy diet dont push your body to mych with the working out but if you were already active shouldn’t need to lower your level at all unless your dr recommends so. regardless i would bring it up to your obgyn! just do some studying on healthy diet for pregnancy and it should work if not dont sweat it theres always after he/she is born and dont worry about the scale because you could be gaining from the pregnancy (fluids/growing baby and all that jazz) but still losing weight! dont forget wonderful pregnancy bloat too so dont be discouraged or anything your growing a baby if you lose some fat awesome but if not at least you are being healthy for baby!. DEFINITELY TALK TO DR BEFORE ANYTHING… lot of love and congratulations :heart::heart::heart::heart:

It depends on what your BMI is. My midwife while I was pregnant said I could loose 13 lbs a month. Because of my HG I lost over a hundred pounds while pregnant

Talk to your doctor he can give you safe exercises
To do while prego

Losing weight isnt recommended but I had gestational diabetes with my last baby and I had to go on a low carb no sugars diet and for my last trimester I stayed the same weight.

I would speak to a doctor/nutrionist and express your concerns. They will point you in directions where you can gain as little as possible without putting yourself or baby at risk of any complications. I don’t think there isn’t a way to LOSE weight while pregnant and call it healthy ( I’m no doctor or expert) but gaining as little as possible is a go. Again, speak to a doctor/nutrionist or your midwife…not Facebook.

make healthy food substitutions. Do whole wheat, extra fruits and veggies, natural sugars, limit fast food as much as possible

Walking, swimming and low elevation hiking are great ways to stay active pregnant and promote a healthy lifestyle.

I was overweight with my last pregnancy. I was advised to NOT lose any weight, but try not to gain much either. I saw a prenatal nutritionist who helped with weight management, and meal planning. I upped my gentle exercise, walking, swimming. I managed to gain a grand total of 6lbs throughout the pregnancy (all only in the last trimester) and had a 7.8 lbs baby! So I ended up lighter in the long run, considering you “lose” about 20lbs during childbirth.

Eat healthy, and remember eating for two is a myth. You only need an extra 200-300 cal a day , that’s like a bagel

Workout! Eat less calories. It’s all ok while pregnant as long as you feel good. Listen to Ur body

Yes! I lost 50 pounds with a pregnancy. Eat 1500 calories a day and make sure you eat those calories with meat- veggies and fruit. Talk to your dr- they will give you a meal plan. Eat dairy if you can also

Losing weight in any way during pregnancy is bad for the baby’s health.

You shouldn’t lose weight unless you are over weight and your body will naturally do that or you just won’t gain. You should be adding extra calories for baby
