I gained about 45 lbs....

terrible I know, but I was pre-eclamptic and on bed rest. I had lost about 20 of those lbs by the time I went back to work.

I gained 50 lbs, lost 20 w/in 6 weeks. Took me about a year to get back to my pre-baby weight. But I only breastfed for about a month, so that is probably why the weight stuck around.

Stretch marks are tattoos our children give us.  Mine have faded quite a bit.  Barely noticeable, and I don't mind them much at all.  Reminds me of all I have sacrificed (happily) for my son!  I have stretch marks on my thighs, breasts and sides of my abdomen.  It's all good though.  :)
