Rant ahead, hopefully mostly coherent, I'm running on fumes these days...

This is just plain appalling and wrong. And offensive and infuriating, speaking as a FAT Hispanic who has a 16 day old baby. I was fully aware of the fact that I needed to be careful with my weight gain during the pregnancy. My weight fluctuated towards the end of the pregnancy because of water retention, but I basically gained 15 pounds in real baby and baby related weight. My baby was 7lb 9oz and I was negative 5 pounds from pre-pregnancy weight a week after giving birth. My fat ass carried a baby and he is FINE & HEALTHY, he scored 8 & 9 on the apgar. I made sure to eat when I was hungry (and sometimes that hunger was so fierce, I felt I could cut a bitch if they got in the way of me and food) and not abusive "pregnancy privilege" and go insane "eating for 2"--I cannot for the life of me imagine what I would have been like and gone through if I was trying to shoot for no weight gain, or how that would have negatively impacted my son. My doctor, bless him, never gave me shit about my weight or weight gain and when I needed to be put on hypertensive meds halfway in the pregnancy, he didn't pontificate about how it happened cause of my weight. These assholes are full of shit, and certainly aren't giving a real shit about these mothers and their babies.
