Re: How much weight did you gain?

I gained 45 lbs with dd. She was 8 lbs even.

I had lost it all by 6 mos pp with ds.
I'm 4 mos pp after dd and have a good 15 lbs to lose still.

Re: How much weight did you gain?

DS - Gained around 45 but started at 115 at 5'7" (He was 8 pounds even)

DD - Gained 39 and started at 129. (She was 8 pounds 13 ounces)

At about 6 weeks PP I had lost all but 10 pounds. I am now back down to around 125. This is where I want to stay too. I have a thin build so I don't look sickly or anything.

PS -- My mother gained 80 with my brother! and 60 with me!

Re: How much weight did you gain?

I gained 50 lbs with my DD at 42 weeks (9lb, 9 oz) - and lost 35 of that by a month after I had her....
I ate a high protein diet, drank TONS of water (I think the majority of my weight was water weight because boy was I swollen!), and the OB doubted I was actually 2 weeks past my due date because my DD was COVERED in vernix - Obviously I know when I tested and I know that I was, in fact, 2 weeks "overdue", but my healthy habits produced a big and healthy baby
I don't mind the weight gain!

When I got pg with #2 this time, I was only 5 pounds away from my pre-pg weight with DD so I'm pretty happy with that

Re: How much weight did you gain?

I actually lost about 20 pounds, then my last month I gained it back. I'm a bit on the overweight side so my midwife wasn't worried. I'm just bummed I kept it on after I had my son.

Why is 118 not good for 5'7"?? That's not really tall? I'm 5'10" and weigh about 155lbs, which is right where I should be. Of course I do have a medium build. I was 230lbs the week before I had my dd

Re: How much weight did you gain?

I lost weight when pg with all of my kids. I cant remember specifics of the first 2 (and its still all packed from the move or I'd look it up) but with #3 I unded up 13# lighter at my last OB appt than when I got pg. I have since lost another 21# & weight less than when I got pg with #1!!

Re: How much weight did you gain?

I'm at 38 weeks and have gained about 35 lbs. I was 147 at my first appt at the hospital, then I switched to a midwife..Unfortunately, her scale is weighing heavier than theirs so it shows me at 187 now (it sounds so huge..but I think I've put it almost all on belly and a little on legs). I've stayed fairly close to the Brewer diet for the pregnancy, with some splurging here and there. I think I've done alright.
