I just met with a nutritionist this month who recommended that I try to maintain but not to lose. She said if your BMI is high that some recent studies had shown it was safe to lose up to about 10 pounds over the entire pregnancy with no negative effects for mom or baby. But, she still recommended not trying to lose, just trying to be healthy because large losses cause your body to metabolize muscle and fat producing ketones in your blood stream which is bad or the baby. You could call and check in with your doctor to see what is safe for you. Don't forget, your weight may fluctuate day to day or even within a day more than it did before you got pregnant.
