Pregnancy weight gain and weight after baby.....

I am due May 5th with my second child and have only gained 1 pound. I had gained 6 but lost it due to having to watch my sugar. I wasn't over weight before I got pregnany but could have stood to lose a little weight. i am planning on breastfeeding. So do you think I will lose weight after pregnancy or stay where I am? Just wondering if anybody else was like this and what happened after baby......

  • Yes, that is correct, 1 lb. I can't believe it either. With my first I gained 24#.

  • Wow- well, that basically means when you give birth you will have lost 24 lbs since they consider the whole pregnancy, birth blood and extra water all to weigh 25 lbs - so that's a good start - I didn't lose weight breastfeeding but I had a girlfriend who lost a ton Breastfeeding!

  • Wow isn't that a bad thing 2 only gain 1lb in a pregnancy? Its awesome that you wont have 2 try and lose a lot of weight after birth, but healthwise on the baby is that safe?

  • Yes, it is possible! And the baby is fine. I have had to have ultrasounds every visit due to my cervix!
