I have spoken to a few friends who told me that in the first 12 weeks the babies take every nutrient from you and most of your weight gain starts after week 12. I'm not worried about the weight as I know I can get it off later. My biggest worry is not eating enough or not eating enough of the right nutrients. All I know is that I eat ALOT. Eating is a full time job for me and it takes a while to prepare my food for the day each day. Tim laughs as I honestly travel with my buffet.... I never know when we will be home or out and I like to be prepared.
So there you have it! Do me a favor and look back at your maternity pictures and smile.... it truly is an amazing gift we have as women to be able to do this.
