  • I had one child.

    I weighed 158 before he was born and gained up to 205 pounds.

    He came three weeks early. I had high blood pressure and a LOT of bloating.

    At my six week appointment after his birth, I weighed 158 again.

    My doctor was amazed and commented on how fast I got "skinny" again. LOL

    No way am I skinny. I'm 5'5" tall.

  • I gained 30 pounds during my pregnancy, lost it all right after. Sad to say I gained it all back a few months later.

  • 12lbs, it was all baby lol. I lost the 12 + 30 more within a month of having him. Didn't keep it off though.

  • lol, Anonymous it is so possible. With my first I gained 20lbs, lost 15lbs delivering and left the hospital in size 5 jeans (my boy was over 9lbs). With this one the morning sickness was so bad that here I am at 32 weeks only 5lbs past my pre-pregnancy weight.

  • I gained a whopping 60 lbs!!! AND I suffered from hyperemesis. (meaning I threw up every day, pretty much all day.) I don't know how that all worked. My son was a little over 8 lbs. At my 6 week check-up I was down to 25 lbs past pre-pregnancy weight. Now my pre-pregnancy weight is just out of reach! Maybe I should be excercising instead of dinking around on here! LOL

  • Anon no it's not I gained a total of 3 pounds my whole pregnancy, baby was growing fine but I was so nautious I couldn't eat right (never vomited)for 7 and a half months The day I went into labor (2 weeks before my due date) they weighed me and I had finally gained 3 pounds, my daughter was 6 pounds 1 ounce of the 15 that I lost, so no it's not impossible
