I’m really worried, I am only 6 weeks 5 days with my second and I definitely have gained weight fast. I have a history of emotional disordered eating, so I ate a lot when I first found out about the pregnancy. Then my breasts got huge quick, and I only have a little nausea and a big appetite. I want snacks constantly. My cravings have been for fried food and fresh fruit. I feel terrible that I have gained 5+ pounds already and I was slightly overweight before the pregnancy.
Is there hope of maintaining and regulating it going forwards so I don’t gain too much? I feel awful about how I look and I just want to do better for baby.
Re: How can I maintain weight, gained too much already
seriously though, just eat a healthy balanced diet. You need about 200 calories more per day than normal. If you are struggling emotionally perinatal depression is very real, tell your doctor they’ll help.
Don't listen to the pp about morning sickness - you may or may not get it - if you haven't yet. Throwing up is not a way to control weight.
1st tri is about survival. Eat as balanced of a diet as possible, drink water as much as possible, go for a walk. Honestly you can fluctuate 5 lbs in a day.
