  • I weighed 136 pre-pregnancy. I gained 16 pounds & weighed 152 when I went in to deliver. Now, my son is almost 9 months old, and I weigh 122. My clothes are falling off & my boobs are TINY!!! I just want to gain a tad bit... maybe get to 128 or 130. I don't know what makes this happen. The only explanation I can think of is that as a mommy, we just don't have time to eat! I find myself forgetting to eat sometimes. I don't know about the leather looking skin... don't have that problem. If I were you, I'd talk to the doctor. Better safe than sorry!

  • Same here, I was 108 before I was pregnant, then I was 132 when I delivered. Lost most of all my weight pretty quickly, I was stuck at 112 for a while, But lately, i've been 104 or 105.I don't know how this happened.

  • It's probally the medication. I'm on Synthroid also. I heard it will help with weight loss. I had a friend that weighed 115 pre pregnancy and 95lbs post pregnancy. She looked horrible. How many mg of Synthroid do you take daily?
