  • I only gained 26 lbs. My DS weighed 6 lbs 11 oz. I was really careful about what I ate. My delivery was a breeze.

  • I gained 80 pounds with my first child. I lost weight with my 2nd child. The doctor thought I was having twins on the first pregnancy and the 2nd time the doctor didn't say anything. :o)

  • I gained about 80lbs with my son and about 50 lbs with my daughter.
    I definitely gained more than I should have but my doctors didn't say anything about it. The babies were both healthy and happy. I just had a hell of a time after they were born, losing the weight.
    I'm currently working off the 50lbs I gained with my daughter. She's 10 months old and I have 30lbs to go.

  • I gained about 25 with each baby and each of my doctors told me it was too much. Oh well. I was able to lose it within a few months though.

  • 40. 4 months later? Still got 15 to go.
    I'm not breastfeeding anymore though so that could explain the lack of progress in fat loss. lol.

  • not sure what is to much. I gained with my first 65 pounds. I have always been 120 since I don't know when and I was 185 by the time I delivered my first and no the doctor did not say anything about it. With my second baby I was 130 before I got pregnant. I was 154 by the time I had her so 24 pounds. No the doctor didn't say anything. I think why I gained so much with my first is cause I craved McDonalds for the forst 3 months straight (darn those cravings lol) I ate their chicken nuggets, with a fry and a milk shake every single day for 3 months straight lol. So I tried to avoid that with the second baby. I am now at 128 and trying to lose it and it isn't working to well lol.
