  • OMG!!! Sextuplets.... did you take fert drugs, I guess so. Not to be rude. I would say with that many babies that would be the least of my worries. I'd worry about all of them making it. You have 6 babies in there, your going to gain a lot of weight and it's probably good b/c they will be small anyways just b/c there's six

  • No matter what pregnant women will gain a lot of weight. We have to. As far as your situation.....I would just do what you would do if you were having just one child.Do pregnant safe workouts.Eat healthy small meals through out the day.Your supposed to eat five small healthy meals a day even when your not pregnant. Load up on the veggies! Put lotion on like there is no tomorrow! Never scratch!! Even if you do it lightly.Instead put gobbs of lotion and rub with you hands.Good luck!

  • In order to keep that many babies healthy, you must gain weight, there is no avoiding it. Remember that a lot of the weight is the babies and the amniotic fluid you are carrying. Since you are so early in your pregnancy, talk to your doctor and ask what excercises he or she reccomends. Doing regular moderate excercise now will help you and the babies stay healthy. You have a high risk pregnancy though so make sure you check with your doctor and good luck!

  • You will also probably be on bed rest later in your pregnancy

  • I don't think you should be worried about how much you gain- honestly, there are 6 babies in there..this is not a time to watch your figure! If you are truly concerned- ask your obgyn for a weight gain guideline so you can try to keep on track for this specific type of pregnancy.
