The doctor said she only wanted me to gain no more than 15 lbs during my pregnancy. Is that normal? I mean, I know I'm overweight but only 15 lbs. She said it's good that I've been losing weight and eating healthier. She says that the foods I eat are coming to my body (even if I'm not eating a lot) and that my "fat stores" and nutrients are going to the baby. I asked her if I was getting any nutrients and she said "yes, some. But the baby gets it off of you. Once it has been used for you, it goes to the baby." Does that make sense? I'm scared that I'm losing so much weight that the baby is in jepordy. Anyone else had this problem?
