Did you lose weight between babies?

I have 10-15 lbs to go to my ideal weight where I feel comfortable but I know I'll have another baby soon.

Seems like a wasted effort.

Yes, I did, usually by 2 months.  I was very active, and that didn't stop when I was pregnant.  I gained between 20 and 25 pounds with each of my 4 pregnancies.  They were 8 years apart, then 3 years apart, then 15 months apart.

Lol. I was the same. I had my son Nov. 2005. It took me a year to lose all the weight. I was pregnant again in July 2007.

I returned to pre-pregnancy weight by three months each time.

Yes. I lost all of the weight after each baby within the first 1-3 months after giving birth. It was important to me to get back to my prebaby shape each time. I've had four kids. Before I got pregnant with my first I weighed 112. I currently weigh 114. I think not losing the weight between babies will make it that much harder after the next one.

I started my second pregnancy about 15 lbs heavier then I was before the first. I regretted that :( I didn't feel at my best from the get go and had more weight to lose after giving birth. Looking after a newborn plus a toddler makes it even harder to stick to an exercise routine!

That's what I was wondering.. It's harder to bounce back..

With each baby ive kept about 10-15lbs.

1st kid i weighed 90lbs pre pregnancy and weighed 100lbs afterwards, gained 25 lbs total

2nd kid I weighed 100lbs pre pregnancy and weighed 110lbs afterwards, gained 20lbs total

3rd kid I weighed 110lbs pre pregnancy and weighed 120lbs afterwards, gained 10lbs total

4th kid I weighed 120lbs pre pregnancy and weighed 130lbs afterwards, gained 15 lbs total

I gained an additional 10lbs within 3 years after the 4th.

5th kid im currently pregnant with i weighed 140lbs pre pregnancy and now i weigh 150lbs at 38 weeks pregnant. I think ill go back down to 140lbs.

I'd like to be back at 115lbs.

I gained so much with each pregnancy there was no way I could go back to work if I didnt lose it.
