I go for my second OB appointment tomorrow and am (hopefully not obnoxiously) bringing a research article on the benefits of Dr. Luke's diet, so that they will not give me grief for gaining 5 lbs already. That is the bottom of Dr. Luke's range of what I should have gained by 10 weeks.
In any case, if they don't want me to gain as much weight as Dr. Luke recommends for twins (40-65 lbs), they are going to have to show me the research, not just state their opinions.
Do you see why I worry that I could come off as obnoxious? I don't want to be obno, but I am probably a bit more informed than the average patient. And if I can help other MOMs (mothers of multiples) in the practice, why wouldn't I?
It's almost time for my next snack. And yes, I am getting hungry for it, less than 2 hours after I've had breakfast!
