Hi there. New here, and 11 weeks pregnant with twins. I was just at the doctor on Tuesday where she said everything was fine. But the thing is, I'm still--mostly--in my normal clothes (minus the top button) and have actually lost a pound or two since becoming pregnanct. This is my second pregnancy--I have a 3 YO son--and everything I had heard seemed to imply that I'd already be huge.
I'm not actually complaining so long as both babes are healthy. I have just read so much (perhaps too much) about how early weight gain is correlated with going to term. My doctor hasn't measured me yet (I'm in Germany so the practices are a little different as I'm learning) but she has done an ultrasound every two weeks. The photos show the babies at 32 and 32.5 mm which she said was right on track for this age.
I'm eating quite a bit, lots of pasta, nuts, chicken, beef etc; drinking at least 1.5 L of water a day, and basically just doing my normal walking (we don't have a car so my feet are my transport). I could definately start on a protein shake, but don't want to put on weight merely for the sake of putting it on, kwim? Please someone tell me that I'm worrying for no reason and just to enjoy being small while I still can!
