-Virtual High Five- I gained 30 pounds with my first daughter because I was 'supposed to' and had hell with labor and delivery. I ate for myself with my next pregnancy and delivered (without too much heartache!) my next baby after only gaining 17lbs. If I were you, honestly, I would find another care provider. Have you tried a midwife? Mine delivers at the hospital and it truly is the best of both worlds! If there isn't a medical reason why you lose weight, I don't see why it's that big of a deal... Baby will take whatever it needs and if your body says 'Hey i'm hungry!!' I sincerely doubt many women would go 'Hey... No!'. My midwife had to go through the entire 'You need to gain 25-35lbs during pregnancy' and shook her head the entire time!View Thread
