Glad I didn't buy many newborn-sized things..

...because he's 11 pounds as of this morning! He's gained a little over 4 pounds in 4 weeks, lol. The sad part? I have not lost any weight since 2 weeks ago! How is that possible?!

Oh well....at least he is healthy

You and I are in the same boat. Mavick is wearing 3-6 month sized clothing and I too have not lost any additional weight

I seem to have big babys so I did not get much nb stuff. Tanner us un mostly OS diapers. They started fitting him about 2 1/2 - 3 weeks. He is probly up to 11 pounds. I am not sure if I have lost anymore or not, but I'll bet my boobs weigh at least 5 pounds, lol.

Anthony is probably about 12 pounds now...in 3-6 month clothes also! I am down 19 pounds. I have 13 more to go to be at pre pregnancy weight but about 25 to be the weight I'm comfortable with!

I was worried that he was gaining too much too quickly. I'm happy to know that you LOs are also gaining like mine is. I don't know what's considered normal or not. My MIL acted like I was feeding him too much so I was starting to think he wasnt supposed to gain so much!

Well, this is my first baby to fit in newborns!! Granted it wasn't for long as he's already outgrown the length, but for the first two weeks I was pulling tags off of outfits I'd gotten over 4 years ago with my first!

Re: Glad I didn't buy many newborn-sized things..

I actually had to search/ask for newborn stuff! DS1 only wore nb for about a week (at 8lbs 3oz at birth) and Mason is 3 weeks old as of yesterday and is still in some newborn clothes! I put him in a 3 mo outfit last night and he basically drowned in it! He's my peanut for sure!

I have the opposite problem. She's growing, but she still hasn't filled out enough to fit in her NB pants and skirts. It's so frustrating, because we have such cute outfits for her and she can't wear anything but onesies and sleepers yet!

Griffin was 12 1/2 lbs on Wednesday (2 weeks, 5 days). I have no idea what he weighs today but I know he's grown since then. He's also in 3-6 month sizes and even some of those are getting snug. I had to cut the feet off of one sleeper because he's just so darn long.

I've only lost about half the weight I'd gained so far.
I've been hovering around the same weight for at least a week. Still wearing my disintegrating maternity pants because *nothing* else fits and I can't bring myself to buy jeans in a size I (really hope!) I won't be wearing for more than a few weeks.

I'm also having the opposite problem! I have SO much bigger clothes, not that much NB... and little man just doesn't wanna get fat enough! He's 8 lb 10 oz as of today, but he's long and skinny... having a hell of a time getting cloth diapers to fit around his skinny little legs too!
