how much did everyone gain during pg?
how much have you lost so far and during how many weeks?
how much more do you have yet to lose?
I gained 55 lbs with this pg.
I lost 25 lbs in 8 days
another 30 to go....then another 20lbs to be where I want to be.
with my 1st DC (who was 9lbs) I gained 65lbs and was 7lbs over my prepregnancy weight at 6wks. With my 2nd DC(who was 8 1/2 lbs), I gained 39lbs and was 17lbs over my pre-pg weight at 6 wks. I wonder how different it'll be this time around (who was 9lbs 15oz).
I have lost about 20lbs (I haven't weighed myself, so it's all guessing!!)
I have about 30lbs to go
With ds I gained the same amount of weight and lost it all within about 10mths, so I'm expecting the same this time around...
Any tips on how to fit in more physical activity??? I'm having a hard time with this as all three kids are at very different ages and stages...
Of course, I lost until halfway through the second trimester (down 28 lbs), then I slowly gained 20. My pre preg weight was an alltime high for me--metabolism was wacky.
I wanted to go veg again, but after losing five lbs in less than two weeks, I think I'll keep the meat . . . and maybe switch back to breves.
Chasing DS since April 2007 and pumping for DD March 2013.
As of 12 days post partum, I lost 24. I am down to 146, and am hoping to get down to at least 140, 135 would be peachy. I haven't started exercising yet. I figure when I start riding my bike again, I will be able to lose a bit more.
When I checked into the birth center I was up 22 pounds
I think the 6 pound difference was water weight.
I was down to within a pound or two of my pre-pregnancy weight in 2 DAYS!!!
I haven't last a pound in all my breastfeeeding since then... I hope I do, though I am pretty darn close to where I want to be (just softer...!)
Mama to Little Bee born April 2007 -
Expecting a new little one in Mid-October, after 3 1/2 years TTC
At the check up (exactly one wk prior to when my DS was born) I had gain exactly 60lbs. I'm guessing that is pretty close to the total because I didn't gain much the last few weeks before he was born.
DS is 19 days old and I have lost 37lbs (but I did have a 9lb 3oz baby and TONS of water weight - so I can't take all the credit!) Still I BF like crazy and even though I have a bigger appetite than when I was pregnant I am eating healthier - and less because I just don't have time!
23 to get to pre-pregnancy weight of 153lbs - but that was plus 10lbs from what I was 2 months prior when I got married...my goal weight would be about 135 - but I think I will see what is comfortable...I care more about my clothes size than my actual weight...I have always been pretty active so I think that indicates better if I am in shape.
My sister put on my size 7 jeans yesterday and looked awesome - I WANT THEM BACK!!!! Actually I was between 7-9, I would love to be more like 6-8...eventually....
Wow!!! So many of you ladies did not gain a lot - you must have done such a great job!!! I was such a pig eating like crazy - especially ice cream (which is funny b/c I hate it when I'm not pregnant).
Good luck everybody!!! Let's get walking!!!!
The day after Naiya was born I lost 48 lbs (I was sooooo swollen)
I am overweight so I have lots of weight to lose just because of being overweight, but I have already lost my pregnancy weight and then some. I actually haven't been this light since before DD#1 was born!!
Barbara: an always learning SAHM of Ilana (11) and Aiden (8) living in Belgium with my amazing husband.
Lost 8 at 4.5w pp - baby weighed 7.10 at birth!
Need to lose 45 to get back to my normal size - which included the baby weight from my previous babe since I never lost that 30 pounds. :
I am definately going to work at it. I did real well with my diet the first couple weeks, but I am absolutely ravenous and on top of eating nice, healthy foods, I grab easy, convenient crap to help me feel satisfied because I just don't have time to . And I need to exercise - I don't know what though, but walking just isn't going to cut it!
I have 25lbs to lose
had lost 15lbs 3 days postpartum
at 2 1/2 weeks pp, am down 35 pounds (I had soooo much water weight in my lower body at the end of pregnancy - so good to see my ankles again!)
still have a good 15-17 to go...
lost: no idea! i don't have a scale, thank goodness. i'll probably weigh myself at my six week midwife appointment tomorrow, though. i'm pretty happy with how quickly my belly has gone down, but i have another question: do you still have your linea negra? if not, when did it go away?
the biggest body task i have ahead of me is to work on my diastasis--the split between my abdominal muscles, which is now three fingers wide at the largest point and quite long, too.
