    YAY for a great appt. They only want you to gain 30? I was told I could gain 35-45 and I'm doing a pretty good job of gaining! Gald to hear everything is going well and hope you pass you GD test.

    Eee, I'm scared of the same ice cream denial ... I'm finally starting to gain weight and it's coming on QUICK! I'm glad you had a good appointment.

    I am glad you had a good appt. That is encouraging.

    The "When you are expecting twins, triplets, or quads" book lists a recommended weight gain based on BMI. I would look that up. My perinatalogist wanted me to gain 50 pounds and recommended 3000 calories a day. Unless your BMI is very high, I would think that your OB would be recommending a higher weight gain than 30 pounds. 30 pounds tends to be the rec for a singleton (again unless you already have a high BMI). Basically, your twins will get what they need from you to grow. It is more what will happen to you and your body chemistry as they leech all of the vitamins and minerals from your system. Hence the recs for healthy eating, vitamins, and weight gain. Honestly, I would not worry about what you are gaining. You are not gaining a ton of weight from what I can tell and your weight gain will level off soon because you will not have room for food anymore. At the end, I could drink a single boost and feel full because my stomach was so squashed. I believe I started losing weight about two weeks before my girls were born.

    I second Mel. I think the recommended for a single is 30ish. I gained 25lbs with my first, 35 with my second and probably 45 with the twins, and that was at the low end of what ppl usually gain for twins. I wouldn't worry about it too much, eat and enjoy the icecream.

    I nursed my twins for 2years and 2 weeks! A little sad to be all done now.

    Honestly, I still say don't worry about it. The ice cream is good for the twins. It has some protein, etc. My high risk doc actually recommended that I mix a boost with ice cream to get even more protein in my diet. I really think we are too number obsessed sometimes. I never worried about my weight while pregnant. I ate healthy most of the time. I did eat a candy bar (Snickers)/day, ice cream, and a lot of Boost when I was pregnant with the twins. I am not too sure it helped, but it sure tasted good and the weight came off easily with exercise and getting my eating habits back to normal.
