Not for me, but I also never gained much. I lost anything I'd gained within a month.

I gained about 25 while I was trying to get pregnant and 60 during the pregnancy.   Lost 50 immediately (lots of fluid retention0, but then really had a hard time dropping anything after that.  Discovered that my thyroid had gone kaput at some point and I got medicated...I've dropped nearly 40lbs since November and I'm back down to a more comfortable weight and the lowest I've weighed in a long long time.  My son is 2 and a half now.  I wish I had been better about not putting it on in the first place.

I gained 23 and had lost 33 by the 6 week check up. I breastfed, and I have heard that breastfeeding takes the weight off, but I don't know if that's true.

Don't believe that breast feeding helps you to lose weight. I breast feed and it hasn't helped me.

I didn't put much on with the first one.  She was emergency c-section and I have never done well with surgery so, I was about a year losing 17 lbs.  The second one I put on about 30 and took it off in 6 months.

I've never kept any weight on. I've always been thin. Even after having 3 kids I still am. I don't/won't exercise.

In any of my 4 pregnancies I didn't gain much weight, so it wasn't really that hard to knock it all off. I try to eat healthy and stay really active, and I go to the gym 3 times a week. I think it took me about a month each time.
