How much weight did you gain while pregnant?

And how long did it take to lose it?

I'm 28 weeks pregnant with my first and I've gained 25 lbs so far. I'm pretty pleased with that and I'm hoping I don't blow up these last 12 weeks. I've always been thin and had a nice body so I'm worried about how I'm going to look postpartum. We're going to visit dh's parents when the baby is 12 weeks old and they live at the beach so my goal is to look good in a bikini by then.

I'm 14 weeks, I was down 13 pounds, I'm now back up two. Morning sickness was bad.

1-0

2-20

I lost the weight the second time immediately, but I put on a bit of weight after my first pregnancy.  I'm slowly losing weight.

I gained 80 pounds with my first pregnancy (twins and bedrest), and 40 pounds with my second pregnancy (singleton). It took me about 6 months to get back to my prepregnancy with the twins, and about 4 months the next time.

With my first, I gained a ton... about 40-50 lbs. Took eight months to lose it. With my daughter I gained about 25, lost it right away. I'm 18 weeks pregnant now, and have gained about 5lbs.

60 lbs with my first (I was a normal weight for my height)...lost about 20 of it...gained 40 back with my second.



If I could do it all over, I would have worked out more during pregnancy. I did have a job where I walked all day with my first.



I would have also been more conscious about my eating choices.



I am still fat and my oldest will soon be three. 15 lbs down, 25 more to go!!



Be as active as possible and keep a food journal...don't be restrictive, but just be conscious, ya know??



Good luck!!
