Overweight & Pregnant

So my midwife told me I'm overweight and cant gain anymore weight as it may cause complications during labour. Which has really worried as prior visits they told me everything was normal, I was healthy and baby is growing at where she supposed to. Im 31 weeks now and I'm finding it hard to know how to keep the weight off and try lose it. Any advice?? Also, for those of you who have been overweight and pregnant did yous all have a c section? Or natural birth?

Omg! I hate how they go to the recommended weight. Everyone isn't the same.Every child I gained roughly 50-75lbs by the end. My blood pressure was fine. Everything was fine.its just what my body does pregnant. I was between 200-240 before pregnancy and well over 300 at the end with all 6 kids. My twins c section was successful I just had anesthesia issues that are personal. I ate healthy and normal. Walked drank water. You look great! Dont fret about it.

I weighted 198 befor pregnancy and before delivery i was 225 although i was over weight i had a natural healthy birth just try healthier smaller meals throughout the day and moving around a bit more. And keep an eye on babys health. I hope all goes well

Omg it blows my mind that doctors say this stuff!!! As long as you feel good and baby is healthy don’t worry and don’t let them scare you! We are all different and every pregnancy is different! There is no “number” on how much you should or should not gain. Don’t over think that and tell yourself positive birth affirmations everyday from here on out, you will be great!

I was overweight with my son and had a natural birth. Overweight with my second baby now and have been told I can have a natural birth again 🤷🏻‍♀️
