How much weight did you gain with your pregnancies and how much of that did you lose by your 6 week check up?

I gained a whopping 45lbs with my first pregnancy and at my 6 week appointment I'd lost all but 10lbs of that, so I lost 35lbs in the first 6 weeks...I'm guessing I had a lot of excess water weight.

With this pregnancy I'm guessing I'll gain 35-40 total and it'll be interesting to see how much I lose by my 6 week pp check up.

How about you?

  • 35 lbs the first time, 35 the second.

    Probably lost 25 by 6 weeks. By 9 months both times I had lost over 40.

  • About 50 pounds, all gone at six weeks because my kid never let me eat.

    It came BACK by six months, though.

  • 33-34 pounds both times, and just about lost all of it by 6 week check up.

  • I do not remember how much I gained. I do remember the doctor saying I didn't gain enough. But I was young when I had my kids and lost all the weight after having them.

  • Lost 45lbs during pregnancy, gained nothing back. I was super sick for the first 6 months :/

  • I gained about thirty pounds during pregnancy, lost about twenty soon afterward, lost ten or fifteen over the next year, gained almost all of it back as soon as I stopped nursing. Now I'm about ten pounds less than I was at full term, about fifteen or twenty above where I'd like to be.

  • I gained 47 lbs. with my first pregnancy. I lost 18 lbs. by the 6 week mark. I though I was on a roll with the weight loss. I had lost 23 lbs when I foud out we were expecting again. I gained back all that I had lost and nothing more. My baby is now 4 months old, I HAVE LOST NOTHING! Oh well...
