I am now 11 weeks pregnant. I had my first ob appointment on December 3rd. I weighed 185 before I got pregnant. ( I gained a lot of weight after stopping bc in May due to undiagnosed pcos) When I got weighed at my appointment I was 178, and when I weighed today I am at 175. My doctor says this is fine as I have had some nausea, but mostly she thinks it's due to I am taking metformin for blood sugar, and I cut out processed foods, and cut back on junk food, and completely cut out pop. She said it would be better in my case to eat healthy and as long as I am not cutting calories that it is okay to lose weight or even maintain current weight for my pregnancy.
Is there anyone else who doctors have said this. I am just curious as this will be our first child, and I want to make sure I am doing everything I can to make them healthy. I do know because I have high blood sugar due to pcos that gaining lots of weight can cause problems. I am taking prenatals, walking daily, and eating a healthy balanced diet.
Thanks in advance for input.
