I'm 5'7 26 this is my third kid. I was very fit before getting pregnant but I don't know why I gain weight so easily? I'm 16 weeks with baby boy & I've gained over 10 lbs I don't know what to do:( I work out at least 5 times a week and still not helping.

Guest May 29, 2017 11:19:27 AM ET

I'm the exact same!!!! i feel terrible.

Some people's bodies are more primal than others. your body knows that you need an extra cushion to keep your baby safe and healthy. it's nothing to worry about. you have to remember not only is your baby growing but so are all the organs and fluid in your body. congratulations on your pregnancy! enjoy this time and don't worry about the weight gain. i'm sure you'll have no problem with losing it after your beautiful baby is born.

When i first got pregnant i was on a very strict diet, the thinnest i had ever been, i looked awesome. i've always had to watch what i eat since i was 16 because i put weight on so easily and to lose it is a nightmare. normally when i come off the strict diet i have to follow a maintenance plan to make sure that i keep this weight off. after i found out i was pregnant i did not come off the diet the way i normally am supposed to and i ended up gaining 20 pounds my first trimester! my doctor advised me to go on atkins , which is safe for pregnancy. i lost about 6 pounds initially and i haven't gained weight until recently. i am now 27 weeks and have gained a total of 21 pounds which is about on track where i'm supposed to be. i was working out a few days a week but then i ended up spraining my ankle (mild sprain), and now that i'm ready to go back to the gym my sciatic nerve is really acting up and painful. eventually i'll get back to it . everybody's body is different and i think it knows what it needs to do in order for you to grow a healthy baby. i would just go with what your doctor advises you. you seem like you're a healthy person to begin with and you work out regularly so that's great! if your doctor doesn't tell you to keep your weight gain down or to change something i think you'll be fine. mine actually told me that i need to slow my weight gain down ( or maybe my husband told him to say that lol).

Hey regards to you athletic mamas, don't worry! i run and am a competitive cyclist and i too gained 10 pounds in the first 16-18 weeks, then it really slowed down. i am gaining very slow in 2nd trimester and it all evens out. i think for us active ladies our bodies put on necessary fat and water retention in the beginning and then it slows down. it evens out. just keep trying your best to stay active and feel good. :-)

I am late to reply, but 10 lbs at 16 weeks is not too much, don't worry. with my previous 2 pregnancies, i had gained 20 pounds at 16 weeks. i'm on my 3rd now, and have gained 10 pounds at 9 weeks, just like clockwork. it is frustrating because i run/jog every day, 4 to 9 miles per day, until the day i deliver. possibly my dramatic weight gain is because my running pace has slowed a lot(pre-pregnancy i run 6:30 to 7:00 minute miles, but now i'm at a 9:00 minute/mile), but i'm still burning 500-1000 calories with each workout. so for me, it seems there is very little i can do to prevent the weight gain.

I'm 5'6" and 161lbs at 37 weeks pregnant. I started off at 126 lbs. This is baby number two. My first just turned a year old in early March. Should I be concerned that I am "6 lbs overweight" for what I should be at 37 weeks pregnant?

I am 3 and a half months pregnant and I've gained 1561/2 pounds. I am scared because i don't know where all this weight is coming from or what it means to gain so much :((

Mommaof3 Aug 9, 2017 09:34:50 AM ET

Hun, i gained 110 pounds. i went from 170 to 280. once i had my baby i weighed 165. lost weight my first month breastfeeding, went to 206. my dad has a lot of female family and he told me that the body knows what it's doing for the baby. he's witnessed a lot of pregnancies lol. so as long as you're exercising and eating right and the dr says you're ok it will be ok. i freaked and cried a lot but looking back i'm glad because i had enough padding so laying in the labor bed wasn't so bad.

Just in case there's any bigger girls out there. I started at 277lbs and I'm now 20 weeks and have lost 11lbs. Most of this loss happened between week 7 and week 13 where I lost 13lbs mostly due to being off all food. No sickness just constant nausea. I have had no cravings but since week 13 I have put back on 2lbs. None of this is planned I've just tried to make sure I drink a lot of water and eat 3 normal varied meals. Except for one occasion where I ate a share pack of popcorn for dinner by myself. Not my proudest moment but mmm popcorn haha.

Guest Apr 20, 2017 05:04:30 PM ET

Mmm hmm.

Guest Apr 21, 2017 05:48:34 PM ET

You're okay, as long as you are seeing your doctor, eating and taking you prenatal vitamins, your baby is getting what it needs. i'm 31 weeks, 5'3, started at 130, and am now 139, with my 3rd baby.

guest Apr 26, 2017 02:43:21 AM ET

How do you gain so little weight? do you eat? i need to watch so i don't gain more than 30 pounds, and i started off at 165 at 5'7".

Guest May 6, 2017 07:49:10 AM ET

Hello dear. My weight is 80 kilo and my height is 170, and I am 11 weeks pregnant. Am I to fat? Oh, by the way, before my pregnancy, I was the same weight. Please let me know about it. I am very worried. Thank you all for this helpfull site.

I am almost 14 weeks and started out 190 and at first I wasn't gaining much weight, I had finally gained a couple pounds then I went down a pound from what I started, and now I am up to 191, but still my weight will go down a little and then back up, which can be normal especially in the first trimester. This is my 5th baby, I gained quite a bit of weight with all my other kids, but wasn't this big before pregnancy, so I'm hoping to stay on track with this one.

Sarah Apr 5, 2017 03:30:13 PM ET

I gained alot of weight with my first pregnancy, about 15 lbs. with my second, and lost a bunch of weight with my 3rd. my 3rd pregnancy my weight was already elevated at 180, after he was born i dropped down to 140 lbs. this is my 4th pregnancy. i am 22 wks and have already gained 15 pounds. i think it can be pretty normal to gain less weight if you are already heavier then your average body weight.

Cassandra Apr 6, 2017 09:27:25 PM ET

What do you mean "finally" gained. you don't need to gain any.

I'm heavy to start off getting pregnant 165. im now 177 at 28 weeks. My doctor hasn't said anything about gaining more weight. Am I still ok?

Guest Apr 17, 2017 08:11:00 PM ET

As long as the baby is growing you are fine. i'm 38 weeks and have only gained 12 pounds my whole pregnancy. i actually lost 6 lbs without trying within the last 2 weeks. during my 1st trimester i lost 16 lbs. according to my ultrasound my baby is 6.5 lbs and has been growing steadily. my dr isn't concerned at all.

Guest Apr 23, 2017 03:08:13 PM ET

I don't know exactly how much i weighed when i got pregnant, but i usually fluctuated between 160 an 165. at 9 weeks, i weighed 170; so i'm using 165 as my starting weight. i've never really considered 165 to be *that* heavy as it's considered an average bmi for my height, and i know i'm fairly active. now, at 25 weeks, i weigh 171. since i know that 165 is slightly on the heavy side of an average bmi, i'm not really concerned about my lack of weight gain. i know i'm eating a good diet for the most part and no doctor has expressed any concern over the weight nor has mentioned that the baby isn't getting enough. make healthy food choices, get some mild exercise every day, and talk to your doctor if you're worried, but if you're describing yourself as heavy, then i think your weight gain sounds perfect!
