  • About a week. I was lucky, I only gained eight pounds the whole time.

  • I walked out of the hospital in my pre-preggo pants....I didn't gain that much weight when I was preggo. I actually weighed less 2 weeks after giving birth than I did before I got pregnant. lol I was 135 when I got pregnant and 128 2 weeks post birth.

  • I was back in size 6 almost right after my first, but since my second one year ago all I can manage is 8's. Everyone is different it depends on how much weight you have gained how much you weighed before and how easily you lose wieght/ Good Luck!

  • I actually lost weight when I was pregnant. I was in my pre-pregnancy clothes, size-wise, a couple of days after my son was born. I didn't wear my regular clothes for 2 weeks because I had a c-section.

  • 3-4 weeks for me. :o) partly because I had a c section and the pants hurt my tummy.

  • I was about there when I got pregnant again, and I got preggo right after my childs second birthday. I had some issues though, and it took a very long time to get my hormones back on track. I think that had a lot to do with it. I was back down to a size 7 though (I was a 4 before I got pregnant). I'm hoping it goes smoother this time, since I'll be breast feeding. Also I've started eating way less fast food and drinking no soda, which seemed to really speed the weight loss last time.

  • I probly could have walked out in them but...I was a tad afraid of the seam on the inside of the crotch lol. I was brave enough for jeans after 11 days :)
