this app's stupid weight chart....

... its annoying. don't tell someone they're above or below the range. put it on a graphic or show us some other way! be a little smarter and more compassionate app designers! lol. i know i'm on track and doing fine. i just cracked the upper weight limit today and boooooooooooom.... it says i'm above average. i wanted to throw my phone across the room!

Mine says "excessive weight gain"... As if that's supposed to make someone feel good! I am 32 weeks and have gained 22lbs...

They need to take more info into account for it I think like height and build. With my oldest son I gained 50 pounds, with my second I gained 30 to 40 I think and so far with this one I've only gained 14 pounds. With my oldest I was 15 pounds under weight when I got pregnant so my 20 pounds weight gain by 4 months was healthy. With my second I was at a good weight when I started. With this one I never lost all my baby weight from last year so I lost weight before I started gaining.

I'm always BELOW weight gain...I'm so tired of this. They never update this app! Too much to rant about. If it was me, I've got lots of suggestions too!

.... they even change the color of the writing to RED when you hit that threshold. lol. how obnoxious. if you're going to do that, might as well have a siren go off or a pig squeal in the background. -.-
