Just how much?

On average how much weight do you loose right after you have the baby? And how long do you continue to still look pregnant?

  • My dd weighed 7 lb 13 oz and when I left the hospital I had lost 12 lbs. I looked about 6 months preggo when I came home and that lasted about a week. I breastfeed so the other 10 lbs flew of in like three days, but my tummy was still flabby. That took some diet and exercise to get toned again. These things will be the furthest thing from your mind once you have that new little bundle home!

  • I lost 33 pounds in just two weeks.
    A lot of my weight was water weight though. I was preeclamptic.

  • Ive heard that when you leave the hospital you'll look around 6 months pregnant. and if you breastfeed you lose weight quicker.
