I am 10w3d with twins and I am concerned because I have not gained any weight. I am already pretty thin, 5ft 6in and 116 pounds. My RE told me I should start working on weight gain right away because of already being small. We recently moved from MA to GA, during my 8th week. During that week I know my eating habits were weird because we were on the road and in hotels. Since then I have been trying hard to gain weight, but nothing is working. I have been eating until I am so full I feel sick. I have even tried adding junk food, in addition to healthy food of course, but no luck.
According to Dr Google I should gain at least 4 to 6 pounds in the first trimester, and gaining 24 by week 24 will help prevent preterm labor. I still don't have an OB in GA...doing anything with military medical takes forever...but I do at least have a meeting with a nurse scheduled for Monday. How much did your doctors advise you to gain in the first tri? How much did you gain by 10 weeks? If you had trouble gaining weight, did you find anything that helped?
