Ill be 22 weeks pregnant tommarow and Ive gained 12 pounds so far. I started out at 128 and now Im 140. Im 5 ft0in tall. My doctor told me to gain 25-35 pounds during my pregnancy. is having gained 12 pounds so far too much? my wic office told me im gaining weight too quickly but im eating regularly. I go back to the doctor on january 15. thanks :)

Don't worry about it! With my first I gained 80lbs (I was under weight when I got pregnant). I lost all of that pretty quickly after birth. With my second I gained 15lbs. You'll be fine. As long as you're not gaining weight really fast you'll be okay.

I wouldn't worry about it if everything else is checking out normal.

Your weight gain sounds fine. Whatever your ob says will trump the wic office. If your doctor is not concerned then I wouldn't be either.

Important lesson to learn ignore everything WIC says!

That's how much I gained by 22 weeks also. I am 34 weeks and have gained 28 altogether. You're right on track I'd say. :)

Don't worry about weight gain.  Serously.  Every woman gains differently and it's really no big deal.
