  • Wow OP . . my dd is 6 months, I gained 55, I got 15 (plus an extra 5lb I had when I got preggo) . . . So I'm still working on this last 20lb also, but it's so damn hard!! My first 30lb came off easily, then a little slower . . now these last 15lbs + 5lbs . . . well, they're taking their time.

  • Yes, these last 20 lbs are kicking my butt! The first 40 came off like it was nothin, I didn't even have to work at it and then I just plateau'd...

  • I gained 30 with my first pregnancy and I was within about 5lbs of my pre-pregnancy weight when I conceived my next child 3 years later. This time I've gained closer to 40 and I don't want to THINK about it taking another 3 years to lose!

  • I gained 38-39 and have lost all but 4-5 pounds. Then I need to take off another 20 on top of that. I was working on losing weight when I got pregnant. You know, I am not really working at it either. So I can't really complain to loudly.
