I started at 150lbs, lost 18lbs during the first 16 weeks due to hyperemesis, then was back to 150lbs at 27 weeks. The day I delivered I was around 170lbs.

I’m 10 days out from from csection and I weight 136lbs now. I left the hospital weighing basically the same thing I did when I first got pregnant. My son is still in the NICU (possible release this weekend!), so the stress has really taken a toll on me and probably caused the weight loss.

I haven’t given birth yet so I can’t say my post-baby weight. I weighed 140 before I was pregnant and have gained at least 12 lbs since (I’m measuring 25ish weeks). I have a feeling I’ll be gaining over the recommended weight- so far all the women who are mothers that I know have gained more! I saw recently in an interview Beyonce gained 57 lbs or so with her daughter- really encouraging to see her post-baby performances though! I’ve seen many women look fantastic after giving birth, especially with breastfeeding. 

 Commenting to follow 🙂 I’m curious as well!

I started out at 133, I think my highest was about 170 (I stopped looking, but that’s the last weight my husband remembers). I am now 3 months PP, and down to 140 (and I’ve been eating whatever the hell I want!) I’m just now able to start exercising (both due to baby and to weather), so hoping to lose the last bit in the next 3 months. 

I do breastfeed, and it has definitely helped.

105 before pregnancy, 138-ish at birth.  My daughter weighed 9 lbs.  She is 2 months old now and I’m at 108.

I did not blow up until the third trimester. No idea what had happened. The doctor was telling me to slow down. Ummm…. I wasn’t eating very much! My boobs were gigantic and I was all belly. I was very swollen in my hands, feet, and face. My blood pressure had jumped to the 130s and 140s. Since, I seemed fine otherwise…the doctor did not seem very concerned. I ended up having a c-section though.

110 Pre-Pregnancy, 150 Birth Weight (Yes, 150!). Thankfully no stretch marks ugh…baby was 7 lbs 13 oz.

6 week Post-Partum appointment: 126 lbs

7 weeks now…. I do not have a scale so I don’t know what I weigh right now. I fit back into my pants so I am hoping I am about 110 again…..

Prepregnancy weight was 155. I just had an apt at 34.5 weeks and I was 208 🙁 I barely fit on the scale bc my belly was so big. I am all belly, I’m measuring 37 weeks, but I’m also very swollen.
