When I got pregnant with ds I was a normal weight and gained 45 pounds during the pregnancy. I lost 30 right after the birth, but kept the other 15. I was still fine, and pretty psyched that I lost 30 with birth, but I never lost that 15. When ds was 2 i got pregnant again and was still 15 pounds over my normal weight. I again gained 45, and lost about 30 after delivery, but this time I was left 30 pounds over and to me that was a problem. I have now lost the 15 pounds and all the weight from pregnancy #2, but I am still 15 pounds over what I weighed before pregnancy #1 and my youngest is almost 3. I guess for me, if I wanted a third, it would be really hard to go through that again. I would make an effort to get back to normal, but it is hard because obviously a baby is more important than weight, but it can be so hard to feel overweight. I've also started working out very seriously for the first time in my post college life, and I am really worried about losing that. It is funny for me to even say this, because I really am not that kind of a person who cares about weight that much, but finally getting healthy and in shape has been such a long struggle that it would be hard to give that up.
