Default Weight gain during pregnancy

This is my first pregnancy. I started off at 134 and I’m 22 weeks now and I weigh 156. My doctor told me I should only gain ten more pounds by the end of my pregnancy and suggested I get a calorie counter and watch my carbs. Leaving the doctor today she made me feel like I was doing something wrong and that I’m not being healthy. I have a pretty active lifestyle and am walking constantly. I don’t engorge myself with food and I eat pretty healthy. Basically the only thing I want right now are vegetables and chicken. I cried the entire way home, I know being pregnant makes you a little emotional but I took it kind of hard. I don’t feel unhealthy and I just started having to wear pregnant pants, I’m still the same size and everything. My boobs are ginormous that’s about it. I want to have a healthy pregnancy and have a healthy baby. Should I watch my weight and only try to gain ten pounds? I didn’t think i would have to think about this while pregnant, I’ve never had a weight problem. I don’t even have an appetite now because of what she said. I just want him to be healthy and I don’t want to have to stress about this.
