So I am trying really hard not to go over the recommended 5 pounds on first trimester I am finding it hard to stick to I am 8 weeks and gone from 120-124 pounds . Maybe I should get rid of the scales ? I had an eating disorder previously so this is why I am like this . I love my bean and will eat healthy to ensure the baby safety
alot of it might be bloat too since we tend to retain more water AND we are so constipated LOL! Yeah I'm worried. My OB said I could gain 50 lbs and I freaked when he said that. My appointment was two weeks ago and he said he wouldn't be suprised if i gained 7 lbs between that week and the next (which i didnt). I am in no way underweight I weigh 145 but when he said that I got scared! I wish I had scales to weigh myself
im worried but at the same time, my baby is showing me no remorse.
my main symptom is extreme hunger and if i dont eat every 2 - 3 hours, i feel faint.
i try eating healthier, lots of fruits and veggies, but my baby is just like his/her father extremely greedy and wants fattening, salty, processed foods. I work out a little, but gotta give baby what baby wants or baby is gonna kick my ass. lol
The only time I don't feel sick is when i'm eating! Even though I naturally have a small frame the one thing that makes me put on weight is alcohol, so I'm hoping now I can't drink anything the amount I'm eating will balance it out! I didn't realise it was only 5 pounds allowed to put on in the first trimester though!
I think it's really important to listen to your body when you are pregnant, I have lost weight through morning sickness and have just started to stabilise in the last week or so, now I am eating a lot more but only when I'm hungry, no unnecessary snacking. I also find drinking water when I am hungry helps as more often than not its dehydration. Go with your gut and leave the doctor to weigh you. Look in the mirror at yourself and watch your amazing body go through all these changes as your little one grows that will be a lot more fun than worrying about a few pounds xxxx
This was one of my worries about getting pregnant was the weight gain......
I've never had an eating disorder but with DS I gained probably close to 60 lbs and it is so hard to lose it. This time I'm about 10 lbs lighter than I normally would start but I have been weighing myself everyday.
The problem is normally if I gain some weight I would just be restrictive the next couple days but when your pregnant you can't really diet. And I normally eat about 1300-1500 calories a day which isn't alot.
I'm doing pretty good so far but its going to be a struggle this whole time because I'm always hungry!!
I would say definitely ditch the scales if you've had an eating disorder in the past. I've gained about 8 pounds so far but I am trying not to worry- I have friends who have gained very little or even lost due to MS in the first trimester and overall they gained around the same as those who gained a lot in the first trimester. Oh and by the way, if you are of normal weight or underweight it is quite probable that you will gain more weight than someone who starts out as overweight.
