Is there any plus size moms to be out there that would like to share there concerns? This will be my second pregnancy being plus size. Of course I would like to be of normal size but I am not so I have to deal. I have a 13 month old baby girl and now I am in my 6th week of this pregnancy. Husband and I are very excited and are hoping for a boy but will be fine with whatever God blesses us with. His family does not have a grandson to keep the name going so they are pushing for a boy.

I had just started to loose weight when we found out I was pregers. :roll: I was so hoping to have lost some real weight before I went for round 2. I would actually like to have a chance to really look pregnant.

Carmen.  I'm Christina.  I was actually very plus sized and had a gastric bypass July 1, 2013. I didn't think I could have kids because of my weight and a number of other issues like hormones.  Exactly 1 year later July 4, 2014, i conceived despite birth control,  condoms and 1 ovary.  I was 248. I had a really rough first 4 months and my guy want supportive . Stress and morning sickness I dropped to 233 and ive been stuck there since. I'm 27 weeks and haven't gained any weight.  I got a lot of negative comments from folks saying that I didn't look pregnant yet, etc. They were hurtful to the point where I didn't think I was pregnant anymore.  But here I am at almost 7 mos and you know what.  I don't care anymore about what people see. It's about what I feel.  My little guy moves around and he's playful and stubborn.  Once I started focusing on getting to know him. talking, singing,  playing,  dancing, etc. I realized I didn't care about how I looked anymore.  Sure everyone wants that attention that pregnant women get but if it doesn't happen it doesn't matter. I learned to look at this from a different perspective and now when i look at myself I see a pregnant woman,  a mom.... not some fat lady that I used to see when I looked at me.  You will be ok. Everyone's pregnancy is different.  Everyone's bodies are different and that's ok. Smile love and congrats on your baby.  I will pray for a boy.  2015 seems to be full of them for some reason.  So im sure your getting your wish. Good luck

Did anyone get a weight gain cap from their doctor???
I went to my 1st appointment on Tuesday, and got my first US. I go back in 2 weeks for another one, and then I get another one 2 weeks after that. (this doctor says I'll get them once a month after that) I was really annoyed to discover that I have gained 4 lbs, and the doctor told me I have to lose it quick. She has set a weight gain of 10-15lbs for me. NO MORE.
No soda (not even ginger ale) No bread or pasta (not even crackers....) and limited- NO refined sugars. I am dying from the morning sickness... I mean, I wake up in the middle of the night to puke or dry heave... I'm siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiick. I'm up right now because of it. WHAT DO I DO? HOW DO I GET MY BODY UNDER CONTROL WITHOUT THE AID OF GINGER ALE AND CRACKERS?
I feel like death. Truly...
Has anyone else had this kind of a diagnosis?
I mean, I'm a big girl, don't get me wrong... I'm 5'10 250 lbs, and I don't want to gain lots more weight, but how do you stop the feeling like death when you can't eat to make it better?!

BTW, sorry i didn't post sooner... something had happened to my screen name, but its back now :)



Lemons always seemed to help with my nausea. Also talk to your doctor about emetrol as well. Gum and peppermint are good also. I hope you feel better!

With my first I was told they didn't want me to gain more than 15 lbs because of being heavier. Luckily I only gained 1 lb by the end of the pregnancy, I lost weight for half the pregnancy. This pregnancy I was again overweight before getting pregnant, I've lost almost 20 lbs with this pregnancy, no weight gain as of yet.

I was 208 when I had my son. I gained 25lbs and topped out at 233. My doctor never told me to watch my weight or what I ate. As long as I was gaining, she was happy. I was 199.8 at my appointment on 1/29. I have a new doctor because I've moved since having my son. My current doctor didn't tell me that I had to watch what I eat or my weight. The day I got my BFP, I was 197. This morning, I am sitting back at 199.8 and I'm content.

It’s important to have appropriate and healthy weight when you are pregnant. If you want to stay fit, take on some exercise programme, but don’t overdo, because it may also affect your condition and your baby.

Ok, I am 9 weeks. Before I got pregnant I was 5' 2" and 147. With that being said that's after loosing over 100lbs coming down from 273. On Christmas Day I was 147lbs.... At my irat doc appt in the end of January I was 169. As of two weeks ago I was at 171.. I understand I'm going to gain. But 24lbs in a month!?! This is my first pregnancy, and everyone keeps trying to reassure me... But my issue is I'm worried about gaining at such a high rate. My doctor has no problems with my weight considering I'm still103lbs lighter than I was. But she also doesn't know how much I've gained either... Soo has anyone else had this rapid weight gain? I'm so HUNGRY all the time! Even with morning sickness!
