I've been trying to find some information about weight gain and pregnancy, specifically the down-sides of too much gain. Assuming that the woman is otherwise healthy (started pregnancy at a healthy BMI, exercising regularly, eating healthfully, normal BP, no GD, no pre-E, not other health problems, etc), what are the actual concerns about "too much" weight gain?
Are there worse birth outcomes for mom or baby, or does it lead to bf-ing problems, or prematurity, or SD... etc? Or is it just correllated with things like high BP, GD, pre-E, etc?
The reason I want to know is that almost every OB & MW has a different opinion on what "too much" is, but more importantly, they vary in their concern about it. I'm just trying to distinguish between the real science and the fear-based info that is passed around.
Any thoughts or info on this? TIA!
