Am I losing too much weight?

I was 219 before I got pregnant & 241 when I had my baby 11 days ago. As of yesterday I'm 217.4. Is this normal? I'm afraid I'm losing too much weight too fast.

  • I'm not doing anything actually. It's just coming off. I'm spending all my time recovering from pregnancy complications in bed with my newborn.

  • I was back to less than my before baby weight a couple of weeks after delivery too.

  • No, that's fine. The baby water and extra blood all weighs around 25lbs so that most of the time instantly comes off -I only gained 28 lbs while pregnant and I was back in my jeans after 10 days - that 25lbs usually all comes off right away -
