I am 23w6d with two girls, and was just recently given Dr. Luke's book on multiple pregnancy. In it I read that I should have been concentrating on gaining weight early on, which kind of freaked me out. I have only gained 16 lb. so far, and was actually pacing myself not to gain more, since that's what your typical weight gaining charts will tell you to do. I am currently at the bottom of the optimal range based on BabyCenter's chart. The OB hasn't said anything about my weight, and I have been making sure to drink lots of fluids.
So how important is it to gain the weight early on in your pregnancy with multiples? Should I just relax and eat when I'm hungry? Or should I kick it into high gear with eating?
Thanks for the advice!
