  • I gained between 30-35 while I was pregnant with my daughter and right after I had her I was 2 pounds heavier than when I walked into the hospital! how disappointing! I eventually lost most of it, getting back down to 5-10 pounds from my prepregnancy weight, but I'm pregnant again now...getting ready to get even fatter! lol. I'm just finishing up my first trimester and I think I've gained about 5 or 6 pounds so far.

  • I gained 40 and it was my 5th pregnancy. I lost 25 but i breastfeed and that has alot to do with it. I now have lost 10 more. I don't think i will ever loose the rest but that is something i can live with. I think it has alot to do with your age and your life style before you got pregnant. I'm young and excersized before and during the pregnancy.

  • I am 132 lb. and I gained 65 lbs. during my twin pregnancy. It took me a full year to get back to 132. I lost about 25 lbs. immediately upon delivering and the rest took it's sweet time. Oh, and I breastfed for the first 4 months too. BFing always helps you to drop the weight faster. Good luck!

  • I was not a twin pregnancy. But I gained 60 pounds with my first and 50 with my second. I have about 10 pounds to go to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. But... HINT.... after you get over 35, it gets harder. So try to lose it now!
