You don't want to lose too much weight while pregnant. If you are already thin then you shouldn't be losing any weight. If you are concidered overweight, you still need to be careful.


I am not obese but I do weigh more than I should. I lost weight by going to the pool everyday. I would have to say that is one of the best ways to lose weight because it's not as hard on your joints as an aerobic class would be because it gets the extra weight off your joints and it also helps with the swelling in your feet and legs.

Talk to your doctor and see what he/she recommends. Your doc would know the best and safest way to lose weight if you need to.

Hi AAG89 and Welcome!

Tell us a little more about yourself and we will see how we can help.

How far along are you? Have you gained weight? Were you overweight before becoming pregnant?
