  • You really shouldn't be losing weight while you are pregnant unless your doctor has requested you to. You should be gaining in fact. Eat healthy and excercise as normal but don't do more than you are used to. Talking to your doctor would really be your best option for the safety of you and your baby.

  • Unless the dr has told you to lose weight while pregnant, you shouldn't. You need to gain weight when you have a little one growing inside of you.

  • Pregnant people gain weight. It's not for you, its to support the baby. If you try to stop gaining weight, or try to lose weight you can really cause harm to your baby. Concentrate on eating a proper diet and getting the correct nutrients, a little light exercise like walking or prenatal yoga is good for you too. You may or may not gain as much weight doing these healthy things, but at least you are more likely to have a healthy baby.

  • Losing weight isn't good during pregnancy but exercising and staying healthy is. So eat well and walk or ride a bike (or whatever else your doctor says) and be healthy.

  • I am a coach with Beachbody, I am 22 weeks pregnant, have a 2 year old, and still work out and do yoga to keep the weight gain low and to stay healthy for me and my baby. It is important to be healthy when you pregnant, above all other times, you doc should tell you if you need to loose weight while your pregnant. I am just trying to gain what i need and stay as healthy as possible. I also drink on of their shakes called Shakeology it is wonderful and so so so healthy... So if i can do it anyone can lol.

  • My doctor to eat just like you regularly would. I was overweight already, so even if I lost the weight, eating as a normal weighing person does, it would not be unhealthy because I have extra...
    Remember you are going to gain a little bit of weight with amniotic fluid, baby and placenta!
