I was considered underweight with my first baby, I was told to gain 30 and ended up gaining 35. 

I gained 30 with my second.

I gained around 25 with my third and fourth.

Did you find it hard to lose the baby weight?

Wow! Did you always lose the weight easily? For some reason, I feel like I remember you posting pregnant pictures and I thought you were all belly, I feel like when I was pregnant, the weight went to my face and arms : /

I'm one of the lucky people where breastfeeding ups my metabolism like CRAZY. Actually, it's in a bad way, I'm always underweight while breastfeeding (which is usually for two years, and then I get pregnant again. lol)

A lot of the weight comes from how much amniotic fluid I carry. I was told last time from my doctor that I'm among 1% of women who carry HUGE amounts of water. My water breaking is like a never ending gushing waterfall. lol But that's why the weight is really in my belly, because I get really, really big from all the fluid.

With my girl, it was very hard to lose the weight. I ended up taking diet pills and practically starving myself. Since I did t lose weight the right way, I gained all the weight right back and then some. I was able to lose the weight from my first son and then some before I got pregnant with my second. I just had my second and am starting to make my plan to lose the weight from him and the. Lose all te weight I need to.
