Avoid activities where you can get struck in the abdomen, like kickboxing or basketball. You should also avoid activities during which you might fall, like horseback riding. Avoid scuba diving since it could cause gas bubbles to build up in your baby's blood.

It's been 4 weeks and I'm very overweight. How do I slow down the weight gain? The best thing to do is add about 30 minutes exercise to your daily routine, provided your doctor has okayed this. Walking and riding a recumbent bike are likely the easiest.

Eat a healthy diet and stay away from foods with empty calories like chips, cookies, cakes, drinks, etc. Cut out those foods and started watching your carb intake. The weight will come off safely and your baby is still getting its needed nutrients. Not Helpful 44 Helpful I gained pounds with my first pregnancy, and now am pregnant with my second.

I have SPD and it's very painful and I can't really exercise because of the pain. My OB told me I must lose weight but I eat 3 meals a day. I'm pretty sedentary - is that why I am gaining so much weight?

What can I do? I too gained a considerable amount of weight during my first pregnancy and experienced excruciating pain due to SPD. I would recommend swimming as a low impact form of exercise and going to a chiropractor who specializes in treating pregnant women. It changed my life. Not Helpful 11 Helpful I'm just 4 weeks pregnant and pregnancy fat is all over my face - how do I control it?

You can try to do some facial exercises. Also, try drinking more water to flush the toxins out and avoid excessively salty foods. Not Helpful 13 Helpful What could be the cause of pain inside the vagina at night for a pregnant mother? This might be the baby kicking or pressing on other side of the cervix, bladder pressures, dryness because of hormonal changes. It could be as a result of infections such as thrush and also foreign objects such as a stray hair or fluff.

Or, it could be the cervix opening or twitching. But it is best to talk to your doctor or health provider if you have pain or are unsure about anything. Pain can be an indicator of something wrong, but it also can be from normal things, like trapped wind. Not Helpful 17 Helpful You should not AIM to lose weight during pregnancy. However, it is common for women to lose weight during the first trimester for a number of reasons, including morning sickness and food aversions.

Keep in mind that it is normal and healthy to gain weight while pregnant. Of course, you can minimise weight gain by avoiding junk food, salty or fried foods and eating smaller meals more frequently. Aim to fit your life around you pregnancy, not your pregnancy around your life! Not Helpful 6 Helpful Can I still do the 10 day smoothie cleanse by J.

J Smith if I am pregnant? Don't go on any "special diets" unless approved by your healthcare provider. A pregnant woman should not even think about going on any type of specialized diet.

Just eat healthier foods and smaller portions. I am 27 week pregnant and my weight is 73 kg but it should be 71 kg so what should I do to lose weight? Eat more leafy greens and pulses. Also, try changing to skimmed milk if you haven't already. Add light aerobics to your routine. Talk to your doctor about other possible ideas. Not Helpful 33 Helpful It depends what you mean by "fast". A continuous fast is not a good idea, as you might deny the baby some of the nutrients it requires for development.

On the other hand, half-day fasts for a short period of time might be fine, provided you eat well and drink plenty of water during the non-fasting part of the day and get plenty of rest and avoid strenuous activity.

Of course, if you have a lot of nausea and are finding it hard to get adequate intake, you may have to just eat when you can and forget fasting for the time being. Not Helpful 7 Helpful 8. I went on the slim fast diet and stuck completely to that diet. I was going to the gym every night and working out for an hour. I am and would drink bottles of water all day long. When I had mine I did research and there are quite a few people that have gotten pregnant while it was still in.

Have you checked the string to see if it's still in place? You said that your last AF was the beging of Oct? How many days late are you? In most cases you can take the test the first day of missed Af. But the longer you wait the more chances of getting a correct answer.

I went home and this went on for two hours and got worse. I got the shakes , felt a burning down through my arms and couldn't focus on anything. I was nauseous and pacing, and then tried to sleep to get rid of the thoughts and sensations.

I slept for three days straight almost, every time I woke up the burning sensation and the thoughts of going crazy would return immediately, and I would try to sleep as soon as i felt them coming. They said it shouldn't stop me from getting pregnant , but it'll just be harder to get pregnant. I'm just as frustrated as you are.

It always frustrates me to no end when I see teenagers getting pregnant, and they can't financially afford the child As much as I feel like giving up, I just gotta believe that it's coming soon. We are thinking about looking into adoption, but I really want a child of my own as well. The rule of thumb in exercise is this. Exercising at a fast aerobic pace will burn fat, exercising slowly will build muscle. If you combine the two, weight is maintained. When a woman hits the age of 30, the body will gain about 5 pounds.

This increase is due to the body beginning to shift hormonal balance. Women who exercise alot may begin peri-menopause as early as 30 where you experience some weight gain, mood swings, and changes in the period. You can exercise while taking the B12 with Lipotropics for weightloss, in fact it's highly recommended.

It's an awesome tool to help with fat breakdown and flushing the system. I had looked at HCG at one point and didn't feel comfortable, then after seeing the video blogs on mydietsolutions website, now I know why.

I'm so glad I went the B12 Lipotropics route instead! Good luck to you. I'm wondering if a Slim fast will work the same way for breakfast because I have always had a hard time eating breakfast? I wish I new how long it would take me to get pregnant. With my first baby it was very fast for me to get pregnant We are trying to get pregnant , and today I am at least five to six days late for my period. I did a pregnancy test this morning that came up negative. How reliable is that result since I usually have such a normal cycle?

I don't have any other symptoms besides frequent urination and butterflies in my stomach that could just be from the excitement of the whole situation. I usually start out with a min walk and then work my way up to running. If you are hungry than you are probably not eating enough, you should really consult with your healthcare provider. I'd go for a handful of raw nuts instead, great for you and will help you feel full! By the way, it is normal to feel hungry when breastfeeding, especially when your little one is still so young.

Try to eat 5 x a day, about 3hours apart. I was at the same point with my son. When I starting pumping it just got worse! I was hungry all the time and even if I ate dinner and lunch like I was a college athelete, I was hungry within 20 minutes of breastfeeding or pumping. They worked great to tide me over until meals or I could actually get the chance to prepare a snack.

While they are a little pricey, most markets offer a generic brand that is comperable. I used the Albertson's brand to this day while I'm at work, it's the best way to fill myself up in a healthy way without junk food or oversnacking from the vending machine. I am not sure that you would want to take any kind of appetite suppressant while Breastfeeding, but ask your doctor for sure!

Since you are breastfeeding still I'd say get the Carnation instant breakfast instead of Slimfast. Slimfast has compounds in it to help lose weight since you don't need that right now the Carnation instant breakfasts should work. That way you get your calcium and other nutrients and they are very filling because of the milk in it. There is sugarfree version if you are concerned about that. NO do not drink slimfast while you are breastfeeding! You need to eat more, maybe even more than while you were pregnant.

I was starving all the time too. Try eating more protein, that worked well for me. Eat good stuff, maybe add fiber to your water if you are gaining weight but otherwise take advantage of the good advice you have gotten and eat for your baby.

I take an organic food supplement that is wonderful, plus a fish oil and a concentrated fruit and vegee supplement. I consider it a real need even though I eat very healthy foods and no sugar or processed flours. I cannot eat all the food tbat is required to get daily needs in so I take a vitamin I trust.

Get the good stuff at we-us. Keep your foods plain and fresh, your body and your baby will thank you! I wouldn't do it. Try drinking a large glass of water before your meals.

Drink water afterwards and between. I would say anything that you wouldn't feed your baby directly you shouldn't put into your body. That is, anything within normal eating or drinking. It might supress her appitite. I hope this helps. Not only would it completely satisfy your hunger, but your baby would be healthier for it. I would recommend the Juice Plus Complete nutritional shake powder which would be very safe and healthy for both you and your child.

It comes in chocolate and vanilla. I have a scoop mixed with cold water for breakfast or any other time I'm hungry and it satisfies me for hours. It's full of protein and all of the plant based nutrients, plus iron and calcium from natural sources that you and your baby need.

Check out my website www. Juice Plus is most well known for it's fruits and vegetables in capsules. There's nothing added, it's 28 actual fruits, vegetables, berries and grains without the water, sugar, salt and pestides and some fiber removed to fit in the capsules!

It's one of the best things you could do for the health of you and your baby, especially while breast feeding. I drank slimfast both while I was pregnant and while I was breastfeeding. I tried the Ensure shakes but the slimfast tasted better to me, and I Iooked on the box and they both contain amost the exact same amounts of the exact same things.

The reason I drank them is because I couldn't stand the taste or smell of any kind of meat, and I hate beans so I need to get protein some how. Just make sure you get enough calories to feed both you and the baby. Read the ingredients and look them up on Google. It probably says right on the jar to consult a physician. Whenever a label says that it means they don't want the liability they want your physician to take it.

Join the club, I'm mother of four breast feeding, can't lose that last 10 pounds. Hungry all the time especially for sweet things sweeten the milk I've resolved that I'm just going to have to endure this until the baby's off the boob.

I know, stop breast feeding. That should solve all your problems with hunger!!! I know that's not what you want to do, so just respect the commitment you've made to nourish your baby the best possible way you can. Suck the weight gain up and diet all you want when the baby's off your boob. It won't be forever, at least that's what I tell myself. You get the extra dairy from the milk or mix it with soy perfect to curve the appitite or mid night snack! I'm sure it's totally safe, but you really should be having MORE for breakfast than just that.

It's very important to get enough calories, especially proteins while BF. Eat like you normally would plus a little throw in an extra snack or two , eat when you're hungry and have the slimfast as something EXTRA!

Don't starve yourself, it never works even when not BF. On the other hand, I will mention that with my 1st two kiddo's a ate out a lot This time I've been eating at home at first only because we couldn't afford to but now just because we've seen the benefits! So anyway, with eating at home I get to pick healthier options.

And this time the inches have been melting off. And I do not work out. All I do is eat, and then chase my kids around all day! Take care of yourself.
