  • I follow the rule :nine months on..nine months off.
    If you go to the gym, eat properly and breastfeed it should come off faster than that..but don't stress over it.

  • My original weight was 150 or so. I got up to 196 at 9 months. The weight has gradually fallen off. My DS is 2 now and I weigh less than I did pre-pregnancy. I didn't do any particular dieting or working out.
