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 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.
