  • I walked into the hospital 30 pounds heavier than my normal weight with my first, and walked out only a few pounds heavier! I lost it all with him before i even left! This one, however, might be a different story. I've gained more so far with him and i'm only 6 months, so we'll see!

  • 20lbs...from the time I walked in til I walked out after a day of labor and a C. I was afraid to poop so I didn't eat much. My DH said my face instantly de-puffed a few hours after my DD was born. Guess it was a lot of water weight.

  • I lost 10 pounds the week before I had her.... didn't lose any in the hospital. But lost about 30 within two weeks of being home. the rest has been slowly coming off. I'm still about 20 heavier then I was when I got pregnant.

  • I gained 30lbs while I was pregnant and the first time I weighed myself after I gave birth - maybe 5-6 days later - I was 15lbs lighter. halfway there!

  • From the time I went into the hospital to the time I left (3 days), I lost 30 lbs. Of course, nearly 12 lbs. of that was just my son.
