So far, Ive gained about 8 lbs this time, and Ill be 37 weeks on Sunday. If I go to 40 weeks and I gain 1 lb a week from now until then, I'll have gained a total of 12 lbs. I havent tried to not gain much, this is just how it worked out. The reason I'm asking is that last time I had one pair jeans that I could wear after birth, but other than that I wore maternity pants. If I lose more than 12 lbs during birth (baby is at the 50th percentile) Im wondering if my clothing from before I was pregnant will actually be too big, and it seems unlikely that I would be able to wear my maternity jeans at all. I'm taking yoga pants to the hospital, and Im sure they will fit regardless, but I'm trying to avoid needing to shop in the first two weeks post partum. Its cold outside, its not like I can just wear a skirt this time
How much weight did you lose the day you gave birth?
The week afterwards?
