Totally wrong. You don't need that many extra calories yet. I was so sick that I lost 10 lbs in the beginning with my twins. I've heard people say you should gain 20lbs by 20w with twins, but I definitely didn't do that. The key thing to do is make sure you get enough protein, which can be hard with morning sickness. I tried to get it anyway I could stomach it. I ended up doing a lot of hummus, peanut butter and non meat sources of protein like that. By the end I'd gained 35lbs and a bunch of that was fluid in the last week or so. I lost 20 with the delivery alone. I barely ate any veggies in my first trimester, but ate a ton after that because it's what sounded good.

Thank you peimum for my siggie
