How much weight have you gained?
This one tends to be between women, but men are out there, too, who want to know things that aren't their business. The healthy amounts of weight to gain are published everywhere in pregnancy materials, and if you happen to gain less than 25 or more than 35 pounds during your pregnancy, the whole world seems to be concerned – personal circumstances be damned. Add to this the general perception of how it should be according to each individual. This is usually based on a woman's own pregnancy or the pregnancy of a love one. Even if you've gained an extra 20 pounds of water weight like I did, everyone is very concerned about you and the baby since you really should only gain fifteen pounds like she did if you want to lose the weight again. Blah. Personally I think these busy-bodies are secretly gleeful that you won't be popping right back into size 6 jeans outside of the delivery room since they didn't either. The only person who should be concerned about your weight is your doctor. And if he's not concerned, you don't need to be concerned. Eat enough to keep everyone healthy and make good choices while you're eating. If anyone dares to ask you how much you weigh now or how much weight you've put on, you have my full permission to lie shamelessly so long as you and your doctor know everything is as it should be.
