I gained 30 lbs. already!

So I'm 32 wks. and just went to my midwife yesterday to find that I've gained 30 lbs! I started out at 101 lbs. (about 10 lbs. underweight), but, still! I feel so horrible. How can this be when I exercise almost everyday and walk down 7 flights of stairs twice a day? She didn't seem concerned and just said "oh,but it's all baby, I wouldn't worry." Ughhhh. Will I gain much more? It seems nothing I do stops it!

  • you may gain more but being underweight to start w/it is ok.You are not fat you are pregnant please remember that.your body is working very hard, take it easy on yourself, after abby comes the weight will melt off.Now keeping it offf lol that is the hard part.
