I just got home from a prenatal visit, I'm 28 weeks pregnant with my first baby, and I'm feeling a bit judged by my weight gain! I stand at 5' 9" and pre-pregnancy I weighed about 170 with a moderate BMI at 23 Even my lowest adult weight of super in shape was 150. I'm 25 pretty active every day besides just a gym routine and I know my diet is healthy as well. I've gain 27 lbs, in the first trimester it totaled 16, then another 5 and 6 at each visit. The first trimester just seemed like wow I've gained weight but with the last visit and today's as well I felt like I was being scolded! There's a group of midwives that I see and today I met with a midwife I had never met before and she littlerly said I needed to slow down because she didn't want me to gain 70 lbs. I'm floored! Of course being polite I agreed. I don't consume sugar or high amounts of carbohydrates, I eat small portions because I can't physically eat large meals, and I get regular excercise other than the 8 hours a day I stand and run around for my career as a hairstylist.... I really am just offended and wondering if anyone else can identify with this?! I thought I picked a great welcoming practice but I'm starting to doubt two of midwifes discretion about "healthy weight gain". Am I just being too sensitive??! Or should I stand up for myself a little more?
