  • Me, me...I was normal weight with our oldest. You couldn't even tell I was pg until I was 7 months. However, with the next 4 I was well over 200. My pregnancies were easy, I ate healthy and did very well. NO proplems with sugars or blood pressure..My children are 23, 19, 12, 7, and daughter last 3...I'm done now and want so badly to get under 200...I will continue to try until I get it right.

  • I weighed 232 when I got pregnant. My last weight was 244, which was actually a huge jump, as in the first 30 weeks, I lost 10 lbs. I had no appetite. Then week 30 hit, and the baking binge began. The weight came right back on, plus the additional 12 lbs! Then I got up to 269 breastfeeding. I had a voracious appetite, and I didn't keep myself in check with portions or types of food. I've lost 48 lbs so far, which I'm thrilled with! I hope to be a normal weight before the next pregnancy.
