I think you meant 44, not 4.4, which is the same as 20kg.  Your doctor is probably just concearned because you're short. I'm really short too. I don't think you've gained to much yet. You're 8 months( I think), so you're almost there.Everyones body is different. some gain much more than you, and others gain less or none at all. each body is different.

I gained 22kg (51 to 73), and I am 5'3". I had some minor issues because of the weight gain, like nerve pain and sore feet, but a lot of pregnant women have those issues.

My daughter was 4.4kg at birth, and perfectly healthy. You may just be growing a big baby. :)

I was heavy before pregnancy so I am not expected to gain much. Actually as of today I am still 20lbs under my pre pregnancy weight but with 10 weeks left I will probably gain it back.

For your heigth & weight you're expected weight gain should be between 35-40 lbs.

I'm 6 months pregnant and have gained 16 lbs. But I still have a lot to go, so as long as I eat healthy foods (e.g fibers, protein, healthy fats) I should be ok. Good Luck!

You sound like you're in the right range for weight gain based on your pre-pregnancy weight :)
