I gained a whopping 60lbs!! lol. I had a ton of water weight though (swollen legs, ankles and feet to the extreme) so I lost around 25lbs of water and baby after giving birth. I lost the rest of the weight in about 5 months or so-but I definitely had to work at it.

Good luck! 🙂

I only gained 13 lbs during my pregnancy, but I also delivered 7 weeks early so who knows much more I would have gained the last 7 weeks.

I gained 35 pounds, and lost about 20 of it within the first month, another 5 within the last 6 weeks, and still have about 9-10 pounds to go, and it is slooow going. My baby is 11 weeks old. It is hard, not being able to comfortably fit in my pre-pregnant clothes yet. There are still some pants I can’t fit into at all, and some really fitted pants that may never be a possibility again. My SIL assures me I just need to give it more time, but it is discouraging all the same.

I only gained about 15 lb. My daughter was close to 7 lb of that plus then placenta etc, much larger boobs, lol. So I actually didn’t have anything left to lose. I went home from the hospital wearing my regular size jeans and within 2 days my body looked exactly the same as it did pre pregnancy, just with humongous breastfeeding boobs. I’m naturally super tiny and my mom also gained under 20 lb with both her pregnancies so I think it was just a case of good genetics and being in really good shape before conceiving. I have no clue if I’ll get that lucky if I decide to have a 2nd child.
