I think my issue was that I started out 15 pounds heavier than I normally am and then gained weight on top of that. I had intended to lose the 15 lbs prior to the pregnancy but didn't try very hard.
but just know... that if you are NOT zinc deficient, you will/might spend the day puking your guts out if you take zinc supplements.

always happens if I take zinc. Took me awhile to figure out it was the zinc.
