Sorry, how did I feel...? Embarrassed, humiliated & disregarded. I had a post c section infection that was also blamed on my weight; my boss had the exact same infection & she weighs 45kgs.

Just to clarify on my patronised post, my ob was great and only mentioned it at the start, just said try not to gain weight. It was checking in at the hospital at around 12 weeks when they said because of my BMI they said I should have an appointment with the dietician. I declined and ended up 10kg lighter anyway.

Yes it was, I had a few comments from ultrasound techs (nothing too major, just it's harder to get a good pic with larger women). I was also told the increased risks etc. and asked not to gain weight. I didn't I was a little lighter by the end.
It was uncomfortable to hear, but I was expecting it, I got similar comments during my previous pregnancy (although I got more the second time despite weighing the same amount).

My OB for my last pregnancy assumed that my weight would lead to complications - not 'you're at higher risk' but 'you will have this.' He was shocked when I didn't develop GD or any other problems. I'm not talking about a show of surprise, he double checked my results muttering 'I don't understand.'

My doctor told me to not put on any weight I don't understand how I can possibly do this with another little person growing inside me! I thought I wasn't meant to diet? Makes me sad, will be interesting to see if they say anything at 12 week scan

Similar experience to most of you, told by Dr not to put on much weight and at full term was 4kg lighter than when I was weighed at 10 weeks (I don't use scales at home). Did shared care with a gp and obstetric gp, the normal gp seemed to assume was going to have all the issues but had nothing except that 7 days overdue my blood pressure was borderline concerning and I went on to be induced the next day.
