  • I actually didnt gain weight until my 9th month. And then I only gained 5 lbs. I lost weight during my pregnancy, the doctors thought I wasnt eating, and sent me to a dietiacian. I had to keep a journal of what I ate. And believe me I ate like a pig. But immediatley after I had my daughter I lost 25 lbs. My doctor told me that some women are like that, and they continue to get pregnant cause it is easier for them to lose weight that way. Sad very sad.

  • I didn't start gaining weight until around the 4th month. By the end I had gained 23 lbs and I lost all 23 lbs by about 3 weeks postpartum. I lost about half the weight the first couple days after. She's 6 months and I've lost about another 8 lbs. I'm breastfeeding and haven't done much in the way of exercising.

  • I gained 35 lbs. (15.9 kg). I lost about 6.8 kg within the first two weeks, and the rest doesn't want to go anywhere! It's been 5 months.
