I am 32 weeks along and began my pregnancy overweight [but I'm not sure exactly how much I weighed because I didn't have a scale]. I know in that instance you're only supposed to gain 15-20lbs.
I've been eating the healthiest I EVER have but it's been hard for me to get active, especially now that I'm so close to the end and constantly feel exhausted. I'm worried that I'm gaining too much weight but don't have gestational diabeties and my blood pressure's fine, etc... my doc doesn't seem very worried. I'm gaining anywhere from a pound to 3 pounds a week but it seems unhealthy because I know I've already surpassed the 15-20lb mark. I feel great except for being so tired all the time. But a lot of people keep telling me that my bump looks small for how far along I am so I'm very torn on how to feel either way.
Any helpful pearls of wisdom? Am I over-reacting or do I need to step it up?
