How much did you gain, and how much have you lost?

I went to the doctors today and, like always, I had to get on the scale. I was surprised to see another 10 pounds gone. I gained 60 pounds while I was pregnant, and so far I have lost 43! How about you?

  • with my first I was 120 before pregnancy I gained 65 pounds with her which brought me to 185 when I delivered I lost all of it, but 20 pounds after she was born. I decided to have another baby so of course I lost the 10 pounds before getting pregnant. When I got pregnant the second time I was 130 pounds by the time she was born I weighted 157 so I gained 27 pounds with her. Then when I went to my postpartum apointment he told me I lost 55 pounds since I had my baby. So I lost all my weight with baby number to and then some and got my prepregnancy weight back although it doesn't look like I am back to prepregnancy lol

  • I gained 30 and lost about 25. I was underweight, so I don't mind the extra five.

  • First kid: Gained 55, lost 55.
    Second kid: Gained 35, lost 35.
    almost 5 years later, broken thyroid + 2 years of unemployment: up 10 pounds.

  • It's good to know that I am not the only one that gained more then the "recomended" weight. They say you are only supposed to gain up to 25 pounds, and I gained that the day I found out I was pregnant. lol

  • I gained about 33lbs. and lost it all by about 6 mos. pp. It was slower than I thought, but I was like the incredibly shrinking woman after my daughter was born. The pounds just melted off!!!
