  • From my pre pregnancy weight... 8lbs, 1lb and 6lbs. I lost between 10-15lbs with each pregnancy in the beginning, then gained that back and only gained a few more pounds before the end. But I was larger than average to begin with.

  • I gained about 25 to 30 pounds with each of my three babies. This was about 40 years ago. Doctors wanted us to only gain about 20 pounds so I was "in trouble" for gaining 25....but I lost it quickly after each birth.

  • My 1st--75lbs
    My 2nd--70lbs
    My 3rd--55lbs
    My 4th--60lbs

    I lost it all very quickly after (by 6 months post partum) and I had very big babies, so that explains some of it lol they were 10.2lbs, 9.15lbs, 9.15lbs and 8lbs (3 wks early)
