What if you lose too much weight during pregnancy?
Depends on the starting weight. My wife is considered obese and has lost weight with all three of our children. They closely monitored the fetus to be sure it was still developing on target and now we have three beautiful girls.

The inability to keep down food or nourishment such as food or drinks during pregnancy can cause you to lose weight. Also a lot of diarrhea can cause one to lose weight. I wou…ld see your doctor for a full check up however. Weight loss during pregnancy should always be investigated as it isn't normal.
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nParticularly during the first trimester when you are nauseous it is quite common to lose a couple of pounds. I had evening sickness rather tha…n morning sickness, so dinner would be put on the table and I couldn't eat it. My husband gained 5 pounds and I lost 5 pounds in the first 3 months.\n. \nIn the second and third trimester most women put on weight. If you are losing weight for no apparent reason do speak to your doctor as this is NOT normal.
No, not unless you have fat on the bottom of your feet. Depending on your size, some people become an inch or so taller after losing weight because they end up with better pos…ture without carrying all the weight .
yes, you can inadvertantly loose muscle mass if you loose too much weight too quickly, a pound a week is the average accepted norm to loose safely.
Well it depends on how quick your metabolism is and how much you eat. i lost my weight very quickly and that was because my metabolism is VERY fast and i went through a stage …of not eating, it is not recommended but my size 8 jeans slide off of me. I have started to gain weight again now and my son is nearly 5 months old. But it takes more time to gain than to lose it but on the other hand It is easier to get back into shape than to actually lose the weight. Everyone is different and their bodies work differently, just because you've had a baby doesn't mean you body all of a sudden changes the rate in which you put on and loose weight. And also your baby fat comes off really quickly with exercise like crunches, and that is the majority of where the weight comes from...
of course you can, it all depends on how much weight you are talking about. As an example If you weigh 400 lbs and lose 200 lbs that would be a great thing, however, if you we…igh 125 lbs and lose 75 lbs due to anorexia you will surely die.
the most weight that you can lose i up to 10 pounds. All you gotta do is to not pig out at iftar and you'll be fine. Do try to get some excercise after Iftar. That's what's re…ally gonna help you. Hope this has helped. Happy Ramadan!
You don't. It is very unhealthy to try and lose weight during pregnancy unless you are seriously obese. Be very careful about either restricting calorie intake or vigorous …exercise during pregnancy - consult a doctor about potential risks to the fetus.
A woman who is obese can lose weight safely while she is pregnant, while under strict medical supervision . Doing this may decrease the chance of developing gestational diabe…tes. If she is already suffering from diabetes, following a sensible diet could reduce her need for insulin, reduce her chance of needing a C/Section and reduce the chance of giving birth to a baby who has low blood sugar following birth, from mom's need for insulin. Babies born to diabetic moms can also suffer from seizures and even brain damage due to the baby's inability to control their blood sugar levels (severe, fast drop in blood sugar). For a woman to attempt this challenge, ( under strict doctors supervision) she must do it carefully, taking in the required amount of calories, eating a very healthy diet, drinking plenty of water and by having several small meals and snacks daily, rather than 2 or 3 (or more!) large meals containing sugar and processed flour. Giving up unhealthy fast food habits and incorporating highly nutritious, pre-planned meals and snacks - all in moderation. Diet modifications along with a safe exercise program - aimed at increasing strength and stamina can be achieved. The majority of vitamins, minerals and protein can be achieved in a healthy diet - not so much while cutting calories while pregnant; prenatal vitamins and mineral supplements will be doubly important to a woman trying to reduce her weight while pregnant. Folic acid (300-400mcg a day) should be started 3 months before trying to conceive to reduce the risk of neural tube defects and taken throughout the first trimester. Your doctor may recommend a higher dose to a woman reducing her weight during pregnancy. If you are overweight prior to pregnancy: your goal should be to gain 15 to 25 pounds during pregnancy. Where pregnancy weight gain goes : Baby (on average 8 lbs), placenta (2 pounds), amniotic fluid (2 lbs), uterine muscle growth (2lbs), breast tissue (2 lbs.) increase blood volume (4 lbs), increase maternal water (2 lbs), energy stored for labor and breast feeding (5 lbs) Total 27 lbs. Preventing anemia -- with a healthy diet including green leafy veggies and sufficient lean meat and supplements. Becoming anemic can cause weakness, dizziness, confusion and fatigue - Pregnancy increases the chances of diabetes , an obese woman already suffering from diabetes can reduce her need for insulin injections by maintaining a strict diet. High blood pressure may be reduced during pregnancy with diet and exercise - but must be closely monitored. Things to remember : while you are eating for 2, one of the two is the size of an M&M for the first trimester. It's true that you need extra calories to help your baby grow, but you generally need to consume only 100 to 300 more calories per day on average. Maintaining a strict diet and exercise program is easier with a partner. (someone going through the same thing as you) - to exercise with and sympathize - after a hard weigh in. Reward yourself when you achieve short term goals. Choose a realistic eating plan that is nutritional adequate and includes plenty of water, combine your eating plan with exercise and be sure to discuss the diet with your OB or Midwife before implementing. While you are not likely to erase a lifetime of poor eating habits in just a few months, the gift of a healthy beginning you are offering your baby can be the start of a long and healthy life for both of you. A woman who is average weight or below normal weight prior to pregnancy should not attempt weight loss during pregnancy. A plan of weight loss is designed for women who are experiencing ill health due to their weight, in an attempt to have a healthy pregnancy and child birth, under the guidance of their health care professional.
see you lose to much then theres a MAJOR backblast of calories etc. but if you want scientific version well you should keep looking
Well to some people it is but not really a problem you need to gain weight so your baby can take all nutrients in what you eat but if you really think it is a problem eat some…thing healthy like fruits and veggies
Your brain stops producing seritonin, you become depressed, your brain stops seeing your body for what it really is, and in fact starts to trick you, yu'll develop an eating d…isorder and end up on a eating disorder unit faster than you can blink. Trust me, It happened to me.
