Re: S/O how long did it take to lose the weight?

with all 3 of my pregnancies i LOST alot of weight due to very extreme morning sickness. Within a weeks time of all 3 being born i was well under my pre-pregnant weights. But I slowly gained weight back each time but i really really want to lose the weight now!!

Re: S/O how long did it take to lose the weight?

Well, with #1 I was down to 10lbs over when she was 5 months old and I got preg with #2. (A note on number one, I gained 20+lbs of water weight in the last month!!) With number she turns 2 next month and I'm down to what I the weight I was when I got preg with her. So if you can make sense of that I have 10 lbs to lose and I'm doing pretty well on it so it'll probably be gone by next spring. I figure if I take a little longer to lose it and change my eating habits I'm more likely to keep it off than if I lose it all at once on a strict diet.
Of course about the time I plan to have the extra weight gone I also plan to get preg again...so on and on the cycle goes!

Re: S/O how long did it take to lose the weight?

I'm at 6m and still counting, but it shouldn't be long before the SCALE says I'm pre-pg... however it seems like it will take awhile longer for my CLOTHES to get the memo!

Re: S/O how long did it take to lose the weight?

With #1 I left the hospital in my pre preg. clothes!! I was back at school 2 weeks later and my pre pregnancy clothes were a tad too big.

With #2 I assumed the same would occur however I was WAY WRONG. I gained the same 30lbs but was pumped full of hormones and steroids and when I got pregnant with #3 I was still at my 6 week check up weight (only lost about 10lbs witht he birth of #2).

With #3 I gained 20 lbs and she is 3 days old. Obvioulsy I am nottelling you it is all gone so only time will tell. I am not swollen like with #2 and you can tell I am no longer pg (or at least only look 5 months pg).

With #1 & #2, I lost it by like 5 weeks, with #3 I think it took about 3 months.

Re: S/O how long did it take to lose the weight?

I conceived right around my DD's 1st birthday, and at my first prenatal appointment (at 12 weeks) I was 4 lbs from my pre-pg weight (I actually had lost some weight, but that's ok!).......... So I never lost it all, but I wasn't actively seeking to either. I had gained 50 lbs with DD and certainly didn't expect it all to come off as easily as it did, but breastfeeding does wonders

Re: S/O how long did it take to lose the weight?

lol
your poll is so not inclusive....

on the first note, not all of us "left the hospital"......
I crawled down the hall to my bed, LOL!

But that aside.....the day after i had my daughter, i weighed exactly 32 pounds LESS than my pre-preg weight.
yep.
LOL.
hyperemesis the whole way, i lost a buttload (no pun intended) of weight!

If it makes anyone feel any better, in the 6 months after the birth, i gained back everything i had lost, and a bitT more...and am now about 7 pounds heavier than my pre-preg weight....and this while nursing constantly...*sigh*

Re: S/O how long did it take to lose the weight?

I was 10lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight of 135 at 6 months after then I got pregnant with #2 so now I am in my pregnancy glory at 160 with only 9 weeks left.

I was 165 when I had DD so I guess my pregnancy weight is just around 160.

I left the hospital 20lbs lighter with DD so I am hoping it will happen again.

Re: S/O how long did it take to lose the weight?

I didn't vote, because I left the hospital under my pre-preggo weight. I had a difficult pregnancy, and lost about 20 lbs. So, I think I left the hospital about 25-30 lbs. under my pre-preggo weight!

Re: S/O how long did it take to lose the weight?

I've never lost all my pre pregnacy weight from DD1 and I don't ever plan too...LOL. I was WAY to skinny to begin with(5'6 and 115-120). I look much better with a little meat on my bones.

With DD#2 I guess I got down to my acual weight in a quick time but I never got that flat tummy back. I really hope to get it back someday! That is my main goal!
