did you need/work with an obstetric dietitian/nutritionist?

Our ob has twins and his wife is the office dietitian. They both offered me any help/advice I need with a twin pregnancy. It will be nice to talk to a live person who's already gone through it with a similar history to ours.

But did you "need" help with nutrition? I'd like to talk with them both again just to triple check.

    I was "strongly encouraged" to seek a nutritionist to help w/ good weight gain (I was underweight pre-pg) once we learned it was multiples.

    I was very happy to have that extra advice--she really helped make realistic food choices/goals that I used and/or modified, esp. in the beginning when putting on weight earlier than later was crucial.

    IMO, I'd take the offer if I were you. Couldn't hurt.

    I definitely need a nutritionist.... but never got a chance to talk about diet to anyone....I have been having lots of nausea and vomiting.  Mostly from weeks 8 to 19.  This week it is just starting to ease up.  Ick!

    If you talk to one, I'd be curious what you learn/they recommend.  GL and keep us posted.

    I haven't really had a need for one, but I think that talking to one would have been good for me. I tend to do better with special diets when it's coming from someone "official", you know? Because I can tell myself "the doctor said..." instead of just whatever I think I should or shouldn't be doing. But my weight gain has been good and the babies are growing right on track so I guess I'm okay.
