I'm definitely not going to limit my food or stop eating lol nothing crazy like that! I just wanted some tips on being healthier! And sometimes the doctors have such issues with how much you gain. I am 23 weeks, 3 days and have gained 17lbs

I've only gained a few pounds at 7 months but I'm not trying. Just a by product. Guess he's taking up more room lol. If it happens, cool, but don't try!

I wouldnt try limiting your food intake as you need to keep the nutrients up for your baby. I am also over weight bordering on obese according to bmi and i have lost 15 kilos but that was from morning sickness and eating healthier. You can try light exercise like swimming if your doc says ok and just try to have a good selection of healthy foods to eat and you may lose weight as a by-product  but again i wouldnt try to lose weight while growing a baby. :) good luck.
