I just had my 24 week prenatal with my MW and everything was generally, except for my hgb and my weight. Then my MIL, though I know she meant well, told me that she weighed 170 when she delivered her first and it was no big deal. I tried explaining the complications/health issues with gaining too much but it didn't mean anything to her. (She deliver this child 40 some years ago) I was upset before but now I am a wreck emotionally. I started out at 119 at 4 weeks. I am now 145.6 at 24. I have been doing strength training for the past 2 weeks as well as a walking regime, so a teeny voice in my brain says it could be some muscle mass. But almost 8 lbs in 4 weeks isn't all muscle. What do I do? I exercise, I watch what I eat and try to go as Paleo as possible while pregnant (lots of protein, veggies - low carbs, sugar). I guess I'm putting in more effort recently to not gain weight quickly, and instead I've done the opposite.
