people at wic

Wic people irritate me. I'm 226lbs and I originally weighed 195+ and they are basically telling me I need to be weighing under 190..... like omg didn't know I wasn't suppose to gain weight during pregnancy, didn't know I was suppose to be losing -_-

I had the opposite experience.  I weighed 213 when I got pregnant.. but dropped down about 5 pounds from all the nausea and they freaked out pushing me to gain quickly! My doc encourages me to not listen to WIC about my weight and that she will monitor it for me. Week 38 here, gained 25 lbs now :)

I've never had someone from wic talk about my weight to me and I'm over 250.
They usually just ask what was starting weight and weigh me. That's it. I'm sorry you had a goof to sign u up

Some people don't get weighed at all

I think it's because WIC is for mothers and babies who would essentially starve to death without their free handouts. They probably have to be very strict about keeping track of mothers and babies weights in their allotment of resources.
