I am 4 months pregnant and just found out I gained 5 lbs! I do not want to gain anymore. I am going to work out more, I have been pretty lazy. Also thinking of trying a gluten free diet.
Have you known anyone not to gain anything when pregnant? Is it possible and most importantly, is it healthy?

If you dont gain weight your baby wont groww and if your baby dont grow. So whats importnant. I think your baby should be.. i gained 80 pounds when i gave birth and when i poped him out within two weeks i lost all of it. Girl you trippin

I don't think it's possible to not gain any weight cause of the baby inside you. Normally people gain about 10 kg (i don't know how many lbs this is sorry). and I think you shouldn't do too much workouts, maybe some yoga :)

Only light work outs. No sit ups and only use light weights. You shouldn't take anything out your diet which won't hurt unborn baby as this can give them an intolerance when they are born. Just eat sensibly and healthy. Lots of fruit and veg and make sure you eat lots of yummy fish as it's good for you both. Now isn't the time to worry about weight, just make sure baby is given the best start by looking after yourself now.

Also if you haven't done any exercise before you were pregnant you are likely to put baby in danger. I'd check with a doctor before you start. Congratulations :-)

If you don't eat, your baby will have a low birth weight. The best thing you can do for yourself is walk, walk, walk! Planking is fine to keep your abs strong, too. Absolutely check with your doctor about prenatal workouts; none of us are truly qualified here.

I have been doing yoga and light to moderate exercises from this site only twice a week, I have been lazy! Now that I have gained so much weight, I am really worried. I do not want to gain much at all. Thank you.

Your going to gain weight regardless what you do. Best thing you can do is eat h healthy. Be, careful what kind of fish you eat some is harmful to you're baby. Its not so bad gaining weight. I had a hard time with it. Now my beauriful baby is 8 mon

Old and I weigh and have a smaller waist than before I got pregnant. If you stress about gaining weight it will make your prgnancy harder. Just relax abd enjoy it. Being pampered and feeling your belly grow knowing your creating a little human :-)

I'd ask your doctor before you start anything. Walking is really good though. Just take it easy. Don't snack on bad foods and eat healthy. That's the best way.

It's unnatural and unhealthy to baby to stop yourself from gaining weight during pregnancy. Five pounds is pretty good for how far along you are and unless you're looking to harm the baby you have to continue to gain weight.
This website is full of great information about why you're gaining. Including how much the average baby weighs, placenta, even how much the average breasts weigh during pregnancy.just let your body do what it naturally wants to do and you'll be perfectly fine. Best of luck in your pregnancy xoxo

Yes, Charlee is right, you're not just going to gain the weight of the baby, but the placenta and amniotic fluid etc. too. My mum didn't worry about it at all and she was back in her pre-pregnancy jeans two weeks after I was born, so don't worry!

You are going to gain weight hun because theres a lil baby needing to grow inside you. If excercise in your daily routine anyway dnt stop now. My friend still went thai boxing up until 8 weeks b4 her due date. And has put 14lb and only as 4 week left now. Yes she worries about not losing her baby belly but if your quite fit anyway it should b no problem.  Dnt worry hun xx

JUST BE HEALTHY. Trying to keep from gaining weight during pregnancy is bad for your baby. If this is your first you should bounce back pretty fast. I was my mum's first, she ate very unhealthily and nearly doubled her weight. Yet in pics of me at a few months old she's just a tiny thing. Right now you should be concerned for the health of your baby, it is crucial. You can worry about your weight after birth.

5 lbs is actually really good for how far along you are.

U should listen to thr advice given in here. I am a medical doctor and it is sound advice that u r getting. Go to ur house doctor for regular antenatal check ups, drink ur vitamin tablets, pls remember folic acid (for prevention of spinal defects in ur child) and listen to the advice ur getting here. TIP: Remember if u exclusively breastfeed ur infant it will significantly help you to drop ur after birth. A normal physiological response associated with breastfeeding
