Pregnancy #3 so different from the first 2. How do I get hubby to stop bringing me food?

My first 2 pregnancies I hardly knew I was pregnant.  I didn't even start wearing stretchy type clothes until 5 1/2-6 months.  Felt great gained about 10-15 pounds which I dropped pretty quick.    Both homebirths went really well.   This pregnancy I am at 23 weeks.  I had bouts with morning sickness until about 10 weeks, at 12 weeks I had a pretty good sized baby bump.  At that point the cravings started and hubby was right there with whatever I wanted .  So now here I am with a belly that looks like I should be at 30 weeks ,a 15 pound weight gain and husband who encourages my cravings and keeps saying things like "Hey big Mama" Or he is rubbing my belly and saying " Loving that Budda Belly Baby"  I am afraid if I keep gaining the birth might be harder.  Would love tips on telling hubby to not bring all my favorite foods home. without hurting his feelings !!

Aw, it's sweet that he enjoys the bump but I understand your fear.

I would just explain that a huge weight gain could cause problems.
