  • I only gained 18 lbs. and i was in better shape afterward than before. My stomach was flat! It was great. I didn't really get any strech marks either. The doctor said that I should gain more but I was sick for a long time and couldn't eat much. But my baby was never small and was 8 lbs 5 oz at birth.

  • I only gained 18 lbs- I also carried my son in my ribcage mostly and only bought one pair of maternity jeans in my 8th month. I walked out of the hospital wearing my pre-pregnancy jeans.
