butterfly62682:I am considered overweight also according to my BMI. I haven't gained any weight as of my last appt and me stepping on my own scale. But my doctor wants me to try and maintain my current weight throughout the pregnancy if possible or gain no more than 10lbs. I think it is completely fine you haven't gained any weight at all and wouldn't worry about it. But if it will make you feel better then ask your doctor next time you go in.
I could have written this exactly. My doctor advised me that he wants me to keep my weight as steady as possible for as long as possible. As long as you're eating well and taking your vitamins, I'm sure everything is a-okay!
My prepregnancy BMI was barely 18.4. And that's me having gained some weight already. I'm Asian, and came from a very petite family.
I gained about 6-8lbs first trimester but lost 4 lbs by my 16th week appointment because of a stomach virus. I had terrible nausea/vomiting but I ate tons of crap and carbs even crackers at the bedside at night to ward off the nasty taste in my mouth. Thus I was able to put on weight.
Haven't really weighed myself since the 16th week appointment but I honestly think I'm up another 4lbs since then, maybe 5. LOL
M&M227:According to my BMI I am also overweight. I've gained two pounds and that's it. Dr. said I should gain 15 - 20 pounds, but isn't concerned when I gain weight (which tri). I'm happy only gaining the two pounds so far.
This exactly but Ive gained 3lbs...I talked to my Nurse and Doc both and they said I have plenty of time to gain the weight after 20 weeks...and as long as the baby is measuring correctly thats all they care about at this point. :) woohoo!
