Hello. I am 5'9'' and weighed 138 before I was pregnant. I was actually 130 a month before (for our wedding, but I was so light bc of wedding stress) and actually tried to put on a few pounds after the wedding bc I did not feel great. I am an athlete, former pro golfer, and have been working out a lot during my pregnancy, almost every day I do some form of cardio and or yoga. I have ate healthy during the 2nd trimester. I only gained 3/4 lbs during first trimester. I am actually not eating much different than before I fell pregnant. Ocassionaly I will have 2 bowls of cereal in the AM- but that is to the extent. I still have 1 cheat day where I allow myself to eat whatever I feel. I believe I have gained about 17 lbs and I am only 23 weeks pregnant. I am starting to freak out about it. Is this OK or should I cut back even further on what I am eating daily?Answer Question

I would only worry about weight if you weren't gaining. . . If you are eating healthy 3 meals & 2 snacks and feel full without feeling like the turkey at Thanksgiving then you are doing fine. You have to remember most of the weight isn't really you but the baby and all the changes to support the pregnancy.
