I just found out that I am pregnant and I went on your Healthy Body Calculator and it said I was overweight. I’m 5 feet 2 inches”, 128 pounds, very active and I look good. I’m a size 6 and I am really worried that it said that I should gain to 158-168 pounds during my pregnancy. I’m pretty muscular so that’s why I think I weigh that much. Can you give me any different info on my weight gain, now knowing more in-depth information? Thanks!
Did you tell the Healthy Body Calculator that you are pregnant? The calculator is designed to add a healthy weight gain for pregnancy and does not allow weight loss. You need to gain weight for the best health outcome for your baby which is about 30 pounds. Have you read my pregnancy topic?
You can continue to exercise during your pregnancy. Discuss this with your doctor on your next visit. Also, if you know your percent body fat, enter that into the calculator. If you have not been tested, leave it blank.<
