I am finally reading Dr. Luke's book. I am very overweight, at 5'8" my weight varies from 265-270 on average and I wear size 22/24 clothes. I thought I was doing good because I haven't gained any weight so far this pregnacy because everywhere I read states that if you are extremely overweight for a single baby you shouldn't gain more than 11-15 lbs. Well this book is claiming that regardless of my weight, with triplets I should be up 35 pounds by 20 weeks. Well I am halfway there and I haven't put on any weight. I AM eating! Its not like Im counting calories or anything. I thought the weight would come on it's own and now I don't know what to do. Should I just expect weight to start coming on its own in the next few weeks or do I need to go on some super high calorie diet? I want my babies to be big, but I am scared of eating too much since I am already so big. Did anyone have these fears? Any advice or thoughts welcome.
ETS: I jsut noticed a similar post below. It looks like Im not the only one with questions about all this food!
