I am 5'5" tall and weigh 141.lbs. I just found out I am pregnant but I dont know how far( weeks) I am. Before I found out, I was on a abstinence diet to loose 15lbs. Now I just want to loose weight healthily for me and the fetus. What are the proper foods to eat and the proper exercise?

Talk to your OBGYN (you are going, right? You need your prenatal vitamins and everything. Don't wait on this.)

You don't seem like you are very overweight at all. Going on a diet to lose weight while pregnant is usually a bad idea unless the mother is severely overweight. You will gain some weight during pregnancy anyway. Worry about it after you give birth. In the mean time, just eat healthy: fruits, vegetables, whole grains, dairy, lean meats (careful of the fish because of mercury and no sushi!), etc.

Don't forget to make an appointment with you OB. Also, congratulations on your pregnancy!

I TOTALLY agree with Lydia
Now, is NOT the time to be going on a restricted diet. You have a baby on board! This baby will depend on you. Take the advice form Lydia, see you obgyn or nurse practioner. Start your prenatal vitamins and make healthy eating choices. You can loose weight in a little less than 8 months! HUGS! F*GM

i am going to email you a website about exercises for pregnant women.
my son was born one month early, he was 5 pounds. i was in a student training hospitals. i caught an infection and my son had low white blood cells. they gave him a spinal tab, he stayed in the hospital for three weeks. i was so scared that we would be under weight and concerned about his lungs.
you can keep in shape but you have to eat right and gain weight for a healthy baby.
