  • I gained 50 lbs. My doctor seems totally fine with it. A lot of mine was my son (almost 9 lbs) and water weight. Within two weeks of having him, I'd already lost 37 lbs. After 3 weeks, I'd like 42 of it. I'm still stuck with the last 8 lbs...9 months later, lol.

  • Nope. I was only a pound heavier at delivery than i was at my first appointment :) Its just how my body handled it. I lost it in the beginning thanks to my diabetic diet and gained it back in the end (it being like 16 pounds).
