20 weeks pregnant gained 22 pound

Hiya first time posting but I'm getting really down due to me gaining so much weight. I was 11 stone 5f7 pre pregnancy but now iv gained 22 pound. My belly is massive n my legs . I'm terrified if gaining so much. I was a very active healthy person but since getting pregnant the tiredness is horrible and I have two kids 5&6 who tire me out so exercise is too much for me the way am feeling. NO1 understands how I feel in my family and friends but it's really impacting on my mental health. Anyone feel the same or what are u gaining if started at healthy weight?

    What does your doctor say? Can you combine exercise for you with exercise for your children, like taking a walk together?. And what are your eating habits like?

    Are you eating healthy food and the correct portions? Try not to stress about it too much, you started at a really healthy weight and you may gain another 20lbs, for a total of 40 but that's still not a worrying amount for someone who was a healthy weight to start with. I'm 5'7, 18 weeks and up 11lbs and started at a healthy weight. I have a friend who is 5'5, 23 weeks and up 32lbs. Her midwife is ok with her weight gain. It varies so much.
