When I went to my first appointment for this pregnancy I ended up getting a little offended. I was told I could NOT gain any more than 20 lbs....I am not overweight by any means and I thought normal weight gain for someone of average weight was between 25-35 lbs? Now I am basically right at average weight for my height, after having 1 baby. My daughter is only 8 months old so I still have 20lbs from her on. I was under weight when I got pregnant with her so I gained about 50 lbs and lost 30 of it. I thought they might take that into consideration since it is the same doc office I went to with my other pregnancy? On top of that the month before I got pregnant with my daughter I had a miscarriage @ 12 weeks (I gained 10lbs that pregnancy). I just don't understand why they didn't take all of this into consideration when telling me how much weight I could gain. I felt very offended by them putting emphasis on saying that I cannot gain more than 20 lbs, it made me feel like I am fat (which is not the case, while I am not underweight anymore, I am also not fat). Has anyone else run into this?
