  • Well that depends, were u underweight before getting pregnant, if u were than no. But if you were overweight before getting pregnant than yes. Everyone gains different, I know for the average weight woman weight gain is preferred between 25 and 35 pounds. Some Doc want you to gain more others less.

  • It depends on how much you weigh before you get pregnant. I am overweight and my doctor told me that I was only supposed to to gain about 15-20 pounds, I ended up gaining 18, so that was good. I also had an 8 pound baby, so to me 35 sounds a bit too much, but everyone is different.
