Same here i feel like I'm eating very well, rarely snacking and still gaining ... I'm already a bit overweight so giving excessive amounts isn't what i want but my dr said i can't control it. Were just pregnant and have to keep telling ourselves that.

Well you're suppose to gain weight. You can't stop it. Not everyone gains weight. But as long as you're eating healthy and exercising then the weight you're gaining the baby needs and will most likely all drop off after birth.

Gaining weight is supposed to happen. If you're still feeling the pressure of how you look or dealing with anorexia related thoughts you should see a counselor. I had an eating disorder before I was pregnant and I see a counselor every. Month

Ya the average weight your supposed to gain during pregnancy is between 15-25 lbs. Lucky I have maintained my weight so far.... but im only 13 weeks so im definitely worried about it bc im so short (4'11) and the more weight I gain the risk gets higher for a c section and other problems.
