Celiac And Not Gaining Weight During Pregnancy

Recommended Posts

I am just wondering if anyone else is having trouble gaining weight while pregnant. I am 20 weeks and have gained 4lbs. I didn't lose any weight in the beginning and I feel like I'm eating a lot of food. I'm not holding back in my eating thats for sure. My doctor isn't worried but I was just wondering if anyone else is gaining slowly?

Thanks

if you are really concerned about it talk to your doctor and ask specific questions about why you are not gaining weight/if there could be an underlying condition etc.. some women gain weight during pregnancy at different rates. my first trimester i didn't put on an ounce and lost weight, at 14 weeks the pounds starting packing on and i've now gained 10 at 17 weeks. as long as you know the baby is okay and you are eating the extra calories you need and taking your vitamins. also, ask your mom and/or sister if you can how she gained weight during her pregnancies. i'm finding that a lot of my symptoms and issues are very similar to my sisters pregnancies. kinda weird but it helps to know i'm "normal" for my family. also, don't forget the 25-35 lbs. weight gain in pregnancy is the recommended amount meaning it's probably the average of what most women gain. good luck with your pregnancy! i can't wait until i'm 20 weeks so we can find out if it's a boy or girl!

I usually gained 10 pounds at the six months mark, so you're about where I was. I usually ended up gaining a total of 35 pounds. :)

Keep eating healthy, that's the important thing. :)

I only gained 12lbs with my daughter when I had her, my Dr. was not worried at all. My daughter took up alot of room so when I ate I could only eat a few bits and I was full but I also drank alot of water actually craved it and I ate little meals here and there because I would get full fast. I was not ever sick just nauseated alot but still ate. After my daughter was born I lost 20lbs and then that is when I gained over 30lbs within months, I think 6 months. 8 years later I am slowly losing all the weight. Right when my husband has decided to have another baby, but Im still getting it done.

I agree with everyone else. All pregnancies are different. With my first baby I lost 5 lbs in the first trimester and didn't gain it back and start gaining additional weight until my sixth month. My doctor was concerned because I started out underweight, so I was seeing a nutritionist. It all ended up fine. When the same thing happened in my second pregnancy, my doctor was less concerned. I gained average amounts in all my pregnancies (30-35 lbs), just put it on a little later than others.

Congratulations and welcome to a life of joy, wonder and worries ;)
