A facebook friend posted as her status, "whew!  finally able to fit in my "regular" jeans!!!"

she's 3 weeks pp.  that might the most depressing thing i've ever read. 

how long did it take you to fit back in your clothes?  my son is 12 weeks old...i've lost all the baby weight, but i still can't fit in my clothes comfortably yet.

Depressing indeed.  

I've got 8 pounds to get to pre-pregnancy weight.  I have no idea when I will be able to fit into the jeans again. 

My first baby, I was 20 and wearing pre-pregnancy jeans within the week.  I was bigger to start with too.

I just had a friend post yesterday "Is it weird but it feels odd to wear pants without a elastic?" She just had her baby a week ago. I'm 3 months PP and was still wearing maternity pants till that post:/ so now I'm in my one and only pair of jeans that fit. Haha

I could fit in mine right away but maternity pants were much comfier. I started out overweight though so my regular pants were still fatty fat. Lol

I was fitting in them when I left the hospital. I lose weight quick and breastfeeding helps a lot!

I'm almost 5 months pp and still have 20lbs to go.  I can squeeze into my size 0 prepreg jeans, and even button them (at least my fave pair), but would never be able to wear them.  I'm wearing size 4-6

 A few weeks maybe but not comfortably and I am still bigger than I was before having any kids. My body is just shaped differently now so my clothes fit differently.

Within 2 months. I was wearing my regular jeans until I was 8 months pregnant so I didn't have a whole lot to lose in terms of pant size after giving birth.
