Yes, I've seen the new Institute of Medicine guidelines on how much weight "obese" women are supposed to gain (or more accurately, not gain) during pregnancy. (See Yahoo "health" news.) Wanted to reassure you all that I will be commenting on it soon.
But first I have to put top priority on some mom stuff, some end-of-the-school-year activities and big events that need my more immediate attention, and then I'll get to this. Sometimes blogging has to take a back seat to real life, but wanted to reassure you that I'm aware of this story and have plans to discuss it.
In the meantime, feel free to talk among yourselves about the new guidelines. What do you think of them, how do they make you feel, what are your concerns, are they realistic, what do you think the practical application of the guidelines will be in clinical practice?
I'll publish comments frequently until I have time to blog more fully about this, but in the meantime, let's start some dialogue on the topic.
What do you think about the new IOM guidelines?
