Moms of twins...if you gained 50+ lbs... - Page 2

post #21 of 25
I gained 60 lbs. By the time I left the hospital (4 days due to c-section) I was down about 35 lbs. Lost all but a stubborn 10 lbs the first year and then lost the remainder of the 10 lbs in 4 months, so just a little over a year, I was down to my pre-pregnancy weight.

I either walk after dh gets home from work (so not everyone is w/ me) or in the morning before it is blazing hot. I have a double jogger that my 3 and 6 yr old can get in while my 8 yr old rides his bike and I double sling the babies (hey, it adds extra weight!) Or, if dh is home and therefore I am not taking the entire crew w/ me, I will push the babies in my double stroller and bring slings in the event that a baby is not down with riding in the stroller.

My neighbors find it entertaining b/c we are our own little parade

I gained about 60 lbs and was down 40 lbs by 2 weeks post partum. It's been 6+ weeks now, and here I sit, still up 20 lbs. I haven't exercised, though... my babies are way too fussy for the double sling, and they hate the stroller. As far as sizes go, I was a 4 or 6 and now I'm wearing a 10. Yay.

You will lose the weight even if you are just pumping!!!

I felt just like you described. I thought I would never get my body back. But here I am, almost 4 months pp, and I'm only about 5 lbs over. I'm pumping 40 - 45 oz/day and eating like a horse. In fact I'm worried some days that I'm not eating enough.

Don't worry -- you'll be surprised at how quickly you'll bounce back.

That is so cool.
