  • I was 144 and went to 189 in my first pregnancy. I didn't lose all my baby weight when I found out I was pregnant again, was 158 now I'm 189 and I will be 36 weeks pregnant on Sunday. So, I think I will be reaching 200 pounds by the time I have this baby..

  • I was 150 and then I got to 162. Soon after, I found out we were pregnant with our first son. I only gained 16 pounds. With our second son, I started at around 171 and got to 204 pounds.

  • I weighed 158 when I conceived and after a month post-baby I weighed the same. Everything just dropped off me with no work on my part. I was up to 205 a few days before labor. A whole lot of that was water weight, I think.

  • well i weigh 175 now and i'm 5'8 and ttc. I was at 150 when i got preg with 1st and got up to 174 but i had thyroid problems and thats why i'm at the weight i am now. After i had the baby i lost down to 147 and then started gaining like crazy and found out i had thyroid problem. I figured unless i lose weight before i get preggo with the next i'm going to be like over 200 lbs wow i thought i wouldn't ever see thoses numbers.

  • I went from 154 to 213. I ate a lot of crap food though too lol. And was on bedrest...But I lost 30 of it so far, so I'm optimistic.

  • With my first i went from 174 to 214. Lost all plus some and was 150 when i got pregnant with my daughter and was 224 by the time she was born. I didn't lose any weight after having my daughter due to thyroid problems and am now pregnant with number 3, my starting weight was 225, I'm hoping i don't gain that much this time around. I am only 6 weeks along and have only gained 1 pound so far :)
