  • I lost 15 lbs in my first trimester with my first pregnancy due to pretty bad morning sickness. I recovered and made up for it, though! lol

  • I lost 10-15lbs in the first trimester with all three boys. But I had some to spare.

  • I lost 30 lbs. Not only did I have bad morning sickness but I also got a bad flu. I ended up in the doctors office getting IV fluids.

    Then at the end of the 1st and in the beginning of my second trimester I got gallstones and wasn't able to eat much ended up having surgery to remove the gallbladder at 18 weeks pregnant...lost another 30 lbs. lol

    I weighed less when I had my son then when I became pregnant, but I gained around 30lbs back after the surgery and before his birth.

  • Oh I don't remember. I was already tiny so I didn't lose any. It is probably gas/water weight for you right now. Congrats! Post belly pics >:O
