With my first, I gained 30 altogether... I gained 10 pounds real quick in the beginning, and when I found out I was pregnant, I switched to healthier foods [I was so hungry I stuffed my face like crazy]. I then lost the 10 pounds. With my second, I don't think it was until the 5th month that I started gaining weight, and I only gained 20 pounds overall. My doctor never said anything to me, either time, but strangers and family members acted like my baby's fingers and toes were going to shrivel up and fall off while still inside of me. Your situation can't be THAT unheard of- I had a friend that only lost weight and didn't gain anything because she was a little overweight to begin with; her son is big, strong and healthy 2 years later, and she's much thinner and happier now!I'm a fitness buff, so I don't focus much on gaining weight! But please don't feel discouraged that your doctor's making you feel like you're doing something wrong. If you are eating, what else can you really do? Your metabloism naturally speeds up while you're pregnant, and every pregnancy can be/will be different- which she should have learned in school. You should be picking up some extra pounds here soon, because that baby will start getting bigger [it still may be a few weeks]. Just tell your doctor what you're doing and how concerned you are as the mother, and hopefully she'll give you some useful advice.
