So I know what doctors say they “want” to see pregnant women gain. My question is-how realistic is that suggestion? I am personally in the recommended weight gain range (28 pounds at 36 weeks) but it has not come easily. I have, for the most part, closely monitored what I eat and have been walking about 4-4.5 miles a day. I hear many women say they do not closely monitor what they eat and gain around 40 pounds. So maybe me slightly obsessing over it is not even worth it for those last 5 pounds. But because of my OCD and always wanting to be as textbook as possible I have worried and stressed over staying in the recommended range. So I want to see how many other women actually have done the same thing. Please take my poll and lets see how often women actually stay in that 25-35 pound window!
