  • gained 60 each time.... three kids

    When I got pg with the first I was 108 (5'4") and after I lost the weight with the last I was 122.

    2. gained 35, lost it all in about 9 months
    3. gained 40, I lost 22 immediately and haven't yet lost anymore. My son is 5 weeks. I hope I lose it all again, but I thought I had lost more by now with the other two.
