  • With my first I lost all I gained right away but I gained only 9lbs. With my second I gained 25lbs all together and after the baby I lost 15lbs. Both my kids were 7 lbs 2 oz.

  • Don't know because I wasn't weighed at the hospital, but I lost 48 of the 58 pounds I gained within 2 weeks after giving birth and then 3 weeks later was back into all my prepregnancy clothes and had lost 7 pounds more than I needed to to get back to my pre weight.
