  • My weight stayed about the same but I had to cut down on the amount of calories I was eating since my body wasn't using them for nursing.

  • gained. I caught it quick though and cut my calories back until I was back where I like my weight. I had gotten way too used to having those extra calories - I could eat pretty much whatever I wanted when I was nursing!
