I find it sad many people think just cause they feel healthy that they are fine. gaining a lot of weight in pregnancy is not good and can lead to diabetes, high blood pressure, which could lead to preeclampsia. so its not healthy actually gaining more weight than recommend and people wonder why they have big babies. why do you think there is a recommended amount to gain? at 34 weeks I have gained 27 pounds all together I weighted 116 before I now weigh 143. that is in the norm and any over at this point is not. people think oh im pregnant I can eat what I want.. but in reality everything you eat is not good for you or baby. the old excuse im eating for two people use to eat what they want, when they want how they want. I don't watch what i gain but what i eat because i know there are things that can be very harmful and i believe people know they shouldn't but they don't care. im sure there are people who have gained a lot of weight who are going to try and justify it.. but all you need to do is watch what you eat and exercise that's very important during pregnancy.

Omg thank you someone who gets it.. Ive had people take this the wrong way and take it as an insult to pregnant women.. You are correct the doctors dont tell you anything unless you ate already over weight or under weight

I agree. However, what saddens me most is that Doctors to don't inform the pregnant mothers of all the risk. If they do, it's after they have gained over 30lbs or in the 3rd Trimester when it's really difficult to manage weight.
