I am not sure if its normal or not..i gained ALOT of weight during my pregnancy but everytime i went for a check up they didnt tell me to start dieting or slow down with putting on weight.What do they say at the check ups?I am sure they will be able to tell you if its normal and ok.

hi gena,

thanks for your reply. well my dr. says that i have gained weight but, it may be due to edema on my feet and not the actual body weight. but, she did not ask me to diet because my food pattern as per she had advised has no oil, sugars or carbs and has only boiled food, protein, sprouts and fruits. but, ya i used to exercise a lot and during my first trimester doctor advised me not to exercise at all and take rest staying at home. walking too much was even forbidden so i guess this may be the reason.
