Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

well the only way to know for sure is to ask your doctor, which I would highly recommend. I know when you have multiples, weight gain is very different than with just one child. SInce you are having 6, I would think you would have gained more, but it may just be hormones changing and all that lovely stuff. I would just continue to eat healthy and often (like 5 smaller meals a day) and go see your doctor. There is no harm in asking them for their help.
