I was 145 pounds 5'7" before pregnancy. I gained nearly 50 pounds! I had my daughter on 6/6/12 and lost 25 of it by the time i left the hospital. I am breastfeeding so i know that helps burn calories but i had a c section so i can not exercise for at least 8 weeks. How long did it take you to work off the remaining weight?

 i gained 100lbs and lost it in 6 months. my body has a reaction to HCG. i start to pack away weight NO MATTER WHAT I EAT, one month all i ate was fruit and salads 24/7 and still managed to gain 15lbs. it's the weirdest thing.

It depends on the person. Everyone's different. My youngest is 7mo and I'm still working on losing the last 10 lbs.

I'm 5'6", and before I got pregnant with my daughter, I weighed 117. When I had her at 35 weeks, I weighed 129. I lost all of it the day I had her, and a bit more. She was a 6 pound baby. The day I was discharged from the hospital, I weighed 114.

It took me roughly 3 months with both boys. I gained 24 with my first and 50 with my second.

My body just really wasn't ever the same. Stretch marks and all. But I'm about 10 pds away from pre weight and dd is 3 Haha but I'm also pregnant again and eating well and drinking lots of h2o. I ate whatever the first time and understand now that its not very smart to do that
