Not sure why your gynae would mention it, I'd say it's more important to look at baby's weight rather than yours. I gained 16kg at the end, gynae never said anything. Unless you have gestational diabetes or have an overweight baby, I think you don't need to watch your weight so much. Eating healthy food, plenty of green veggies, lean meat is always good though
