Remember that your body is doing something marvelous, making a whole new human with all their organs and bones and parts out of what you eat. So don't skimp on the healthy food and remember that your blood volume increases a LOT to nourish the baby so a lot of gained weight is just fluid, and another 8-10 pounds = baby, placenta, amniotic fluid. The only reason to worry about even a 30 or 40 pound gain is if it came from eating junk. Of course your doctor will know best for YOU but I am just sharing my thoughts, having had five babies myself Congrats!
