I am pregnant with DS2 due in April, weighed 124 when I got pregnant with him and have gained 20-22ish doctor only says, " weight looks good." I would not worry about it, definitely would not cut calories or foods unless weight was out of control. That's crazy to me. Sorry he's making you feel bad....
I have had similar experiences with my OBs. I usually gain about 35lbs total, but with my first I think I gained 45lbs. It was literally all belly with the first one. Sometimes I complain that I don't like gaining weight and my doctors have actually been the ones to tell me not to worry about it & that a lot of it is water weight gain.
