"I Gained Fifteen Pounds in my First Trimester!"

What You Can Do About It


Leave a Comment Return to Article
I gained 80 lbs during my pregnancy with my daughter and 75 lbs with my son. I had problems with both pregnancies and highly recommend staying within the healthiest weight range possible. Unfortunately the doc told me not to exercise (I have a bleeding disorder), and I'm a lifelong vegetarian with a healthy diet. So there wasn't a lot I could do to change anything.

The doctor did explain that some of it is genetic, and the good news is that I was back to my pre-baby weight after about 3 years. It took a while, but I got there! I now have a healthy, happy family & we're all within our healthy weight ranges. Report
