11 weeks

We've made it another week! So far I think I've gained 2 lbs. Here's this week's picture!

I ordered a recommended book online and it came today! When You're Expecting Twins, Triplets or Quads by Dr Barbara Luke & Tamar Eberlein. It has my expected nutrition requirements. Are you ready for this??? By 20 weeks it'd be ideal if I gained 45 lbs! That's in 9 weeks! I guess here's how I'll do it (each DAY!)...

Calories - 4,500
Protein - 225 g
Carbs - 450 g
Fat - 200 g

12 Servings of Dairy, 6 Servings of Veggies, 8 Servings of Fruit, 12 Servings of Grains/Breads, 8 Servings of Fats/Oils/Nuts, 2 Eggs, and 4 Servings of Meat/Fish/Poultry.

Though it's going to be hard, I've gotta each this much for the babies! Women who follow this have had babies 20% bigger than those that haven't and made it closer to term. So, I raise my bowl of ice cream loaded with whip cream & strawberries to you babies! I'm eating this for you!!
