Weight gain in third trimester


Until the end of the second trimester I had actually been losing weight.

I’m now 34 weeks pregnant and in the last 6 weeks I have put 6lbs. My doctor has told me that I’ve put far too much weight on and I have to stop eating everything accept meat and veg, and the fact I have put so much on means its more likely I will now have to have a c-section.

I’ve not been eating any differently than the rest of my pregnancy so don’t know what else would cause be to pile on the pounds other than baby growing.

From the info I’ve read this weight gain is normal in the third trimester due to baby packing on the fat and that you should be putting on 0.5-1lbs per week.

Has anyone else been told the same by their doctor or is this just normal for the final few weeks?
