  • I find this question funny because when I came back to work from maternity leave everyone said wow you lost all that baby weight and it cracks me up because I was fat wayyyyy before I got pregnant I was 255 when I first got pregnant and I was 265 when I gave birth last year now I'm 160 lol I can laugh now but it wasn't the baby that made me fat it was cheesecake, canolis, icecream, I can go on and on lol

  • With my first only a couple of months. My second I never got the weight off. With my most recent I was 35 lighter than my pre poignant
    Pregnancy weight at 9 months pregnant. I guess it just depends

  • 3 Months. I had a 10lb 5.3 oz baby. Just lifting her all day has been a workout! I've lost the baby weight but nothing more than that. Everyone is different though! Don't be too hard on yourself!

  • I never have. It's not realistic to go from 115 to 210 and back down. Your body changes, your hips get wider, your boobs get bigger, etc. I don't mind the 130 I am at, but 115 just isn't acceptable for my body type anymore.

  • 6 weeks. Breastfeeding is awesome :) I guess the stomach flu helped a little too LOL Now I'm just working at keeping it off.
