Just found out I am pregnant with my third!! Anyways, I don't need to gain a ton of weight with this one. I am already overweight a little. The bad thing is I am starving all the time. I am eating like crazy. I am only about 2 months pregnant. I gained around 45 pounds with the other two pregnancies. It seems like I have to eat more to keep from throwing up. Otherwise, on an empty stomach I feel sick.
Can anyone tell me if there is a healthy way I can only put on 20 to 25 pounds?
I heard that breast feeding really helps taking the weight off, and I tried it with both pregnancies but with C-section it was to hard for me. I was in tons of pain! I will try again with this baby, but I know its going to be a challenge.
Any replies would be appreciated!! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">
I gained about 30 pounds w/ my daughter. I totally cut pop and caffeine out of my diet and tried to drink a lot of juice and water. That seemed to help alot. I lost a lot of weight by breastfeeding (at least I think that is what it is from) and about two months postpartum I began doing those Tae Bo tapes - those REALLY helped.
My doctor told me you only have to eat 300 more calories a day which is not all that much. Its like having a yogurt. Try to drink alot of water and not too much juice, especially the sugar added ones.
The biggest problem I have is feeling so hungry all the time. I mean I am starting to wonder if I am possibly having twins. My sister did! YIKES!!!!!! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> LOL They run in the family, and I am really really scared!
Anyways, I will try and drink more water. Its hard to drink water when you have other selections. tee hee I guess I have to control myself or I'll look like a whale!! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> I have already gained 7 pounds and I am only 1 month pregnant. Atleast I think thats how far I am. I missed my period all of November. I go to the doctors tommorow.
I would like to know how to gain MORE weight. I am 3 months pregnant and extremely hungry, but not gaining much weight. In my first pregnancy I gained 25 pounds but in my second pregnancy I gained only 15. I am already underweight so I would be glad to gain at least 35-40 lbs.
keep a ton of fruit in the house. it can be fresh, frozen, canned. i always kept vanilla or raspberry cheesecake frozen yogurt in the freezer with some frozen berries and peeled frozen bananas. pop it in the blender with skim milk, yum yum yum, it fills you up and is really good for you. also try light light exercise, like walking, it will help with everyting. GOOD LUCK let us know how everything is going!
congratulations! Well I to was concerned with not wanting to gain to much weight with my second daughter what I did was of course drink alot of water all I did was carry a water bottle with me where ever I went Stores, shopping, in the car you name it but it adds up and I would drink gaterade for some change. Now my daughter is 7 mths and I actually want to drink water because I got so used to it and it helps when breastfeeding and losing weight. If you find yourself hungry try snaking on crackers and don't go to long between meals. Good luck
