I'm so jealous of my friend who had a baby in Sept. before she got pregnant she wore a size 9 and since shes had her baby she slimmed down to a size 7 she wasn't even trying it just melted off. 2 weeks after giving birth you couldn't even tell she had a baby, and not a stretch mark one, why can't we all be like that????

  • I know my cousin just had a baby 2 months ago and is down a size lower than when she started. I secretly hate her.

  • She will gain it back believe me! That happened to me! I was so excited to fit in my prepreg jeans 3 weeks after giving birth. Now I have a closet full of size 7 jeans that don't fit because I gained weight back!

  • I remember going to JC Penny a few weeks after I had my second baby and crying my eyes out because I had to try on a size 9 skirt. I had gone from a size 5 to a 9!!!!!! Even worse, I didn't have time to even lose that weight before I got pregnant with my son. I was a total lard after I had him and it took me 7 years to get back to a size 5.

  • The trick is to try not to gain a lot of weight in the first 3 to 4 months that you're pregnant. If you gain most of it afterwards you'll lose it quicker. Especially the last 2 months. I had two sons. Gained 40 the first and 30 the second. Lost is all sooo fast. A lot of times it's nerves also. After I had my kids I was so jittery. It's true. I read it once in a magazine before I had my kids. So, Don't eat for two in the beginning even if you crave stuff try to be good. God Bless to all you mommies.
