  • I gained 74 pounds. I was huge. It was all fluid. Two weeks after my DD was born I was 5 lbs lighter than before I got pregnant. My doc said for some reason I retained alot of fluid.

  • I gained 45 pounds and lost 25 of that right after I had my son. I lost another 5-10 pounds before he was 2 months old. Unfortunately, i still can't wear the clothes I had before I got preggo. My hips widened and my boobs grew too. Don't see them shrinking either. I went up 2 sizes. Boo!!

  • P.S. My midwife said that she wanted me to gain at least 25 pounds and anything over 40 was on me after I had the baby.

  • 45 with my first daughter, and i am almost 20 weeks along with this 2nd baby, and it's not been as much this time. only time will tell though. i was pretty small before so i need the extra weight for the babies and nursing.

  • 60 lbs with my first, 45 with my second (I thought I would stay between the recommended amounts with him but I gained 10 lbs in the last week), and with my third it was around 40 lbs. Thankfully I lose it all rather quickly.
