  • From my last checkup at the Dr.s office until I came home from the hospital after having my daughter I had lost 20 lbs. My baby weighed 7 lb, 12oz. I know 7 lbs, 12oz was the baby and the rest was the placenta & water weight I guess.

  • well I was 145 when i got pregnant, (wow you make me seem fat) lol.. anyway at the end of my pregnancy I was 192, after I had my baby I was 165. and now (3 months later) i'm 155. and it's not due to exercise just yet. lol. but anyway I think you'll probably lose it all pretty quickly.

  • The day you leave the hospital you will be lucky to be 7lbs lighter than when you arrived. Shocking, I know.
