Not sure how much I lost in the hospital as they did not weigh me before I left.

I do know I fit into my pre pregnancy pants 6 days after I had my son and my jeans 6 weeks after.

I think I lost a total of 30lbs but I only gained 30 as I watched what I ate. I was overweight before having my son and I still am now. I didn't gain any extra weight and I lost everything that I gained with him but hoping to lose some extra now that I am done breastfeeding.

I did breastfeed and the weight did come off fast for me.

This is so hard to remember. I gained 45 lbs, James weight 9.5, I want to say I lost 20 lbs in the hospital, but I'm not really sure about that. I know I had lost all the weight by 4 months though, and was back in all normal clothes by 2 months. I know that sounds like a long time, but it really was not, I felt like the weight came off pretty quick, and breastfeeding helped out with that.

I gained 16 lbs total for the pregnancy but I was overweight before getting PG too. I remember I gained 9 lbs in one week right at the end...at that point I had only gained 6lbs.

I wasnt weighed in the hospital so I dont know what I lost right away.

In 2 weeks, I was back in my pre-PG pants but didnt weigh myself. I dont remember when I weighed myself but I lost 40 lbs in the first month....so the 16 PG lbs and then other weight off my original frame.

I was also a major sweat-bag for 6 weeks and was sweating in bed at night every night....so annoying.

I gained almost 40 pounds during my pregnancy

1. How much weight did you lose you in the hospital?
I think between 15 and 20

2. How much weight did you lose in the first month (including the birth)?
By my six week appointment I had lost over 30 pounds. My MW actually warned me not to lose weight too quickly! But I had a lot of water weight I gained at the end, and I had very little appetite when I first got home from the hospital. I did not even come close to fitting in my normal clothes at this point!

My weight loss really leveled off after the first month or so, and I hovered about 5 lbs above my starting weight until around 4 months postpartum, at which point DH started trying to lose weight so I ate healthier, and I started teaching dance again. I then dropped the last 5 lbs and a few additional pounds (and I ate a ton - yay BFing!) Those last few pounds were tough to lose but the first 35 were pretty effortless.

I was really similar to Grace. I gained about 45 pounds and lost about 20 during delivery/birth. The rest I lost within about two months. I fit into all my old clothes by three months without having to do anything besides going for lots of walks with my LO and breastfeeding.

I definitely wouldn't worry about the weight loss until months after the baby has come, there are enough other things to worry and deal with!

I gained 35 lbs. with DS, but I honestly don't remember how long it took to come off.

I weighed 125 when I got pregnant and I was 165 on the day I delivered. I didn't weigh myself until 1 week PP, and at that point I was down to 140. By 1 month PP I was down to 134. By 2 months PP I was back to 125. At 3 months PP I was 118 and I stayed there until I weaned Ry, at which point I jumped back up to 125.

It was 100% because of BFing, but more specifically because of BFing a baby with food allergies. I had to cut dairy and wheat from my diet right after Ry was born because he was reacting to them in my BM and those were 2 cornerstones of my diet at the time. I didn't have the energy or time to learn to eat right at that time (no sleep, colicky newborn hell, haha), so I had like 3 things I knew I could eat. I literally felt like I was starving to death and Ry was sucking all the nutrients out of me. Eventually he slept a little more and I did a little research and ate a little better, hehe.

1. How much weight did you lose you in the hospital?
No idea, as they didn't weigh me there (or at any of my antenatal appts for that matter)


2. How much weight did you lose in the first month (including the birth)? -I lost all of my pregnancy weight
