I got back to pre preg weight by 8 weeks, however it's the 8 years worth of IVF weight that I can't shift. Each cycle I seemed to put on a kg or 2.
I was a few kilos lighter than pre-pregnancy weight within a couple of months, but still have a bit of extra tummy Oh well.
I put on 12.5kg and lost it by 4 weeks after birth (c-section). My lower belly is bigger though and hangs more than it used to (i wasn't toned pre-preg either), so I'll be buying new jeans soon!
Just waiting until my 6 week checkup next week to get the ok from my Ob to start doing some exercises to strengthen and tone my tummy.

I have 2 sons 3 and 21 months had emergency x section now 2kgs lighter then before being pregnant w ds 2 I'm happy but it's been stressful as little girl was 8 weeks early
I was pre preg weight 2 days after having bub, and dropped a further 3 kg that week. I was awfully sick the first 20 weeks with OHSS and morning sickness. I only gained about 8kg the whole time, and bub was almost 4 of that. I had a PPH and was very anaemic after birth and that combined with breastfeeding I think is why it happened so fast. Bub is 3 weeks now and I've not lost any more weight. My body shape is def different, besides my belly that I can tell still needs time to recover I'm actually happier with it. Before pregnancy I was very unhappy with myself. I wasn't too bad but I def had a little extra weight. I think pregnancy has taught me to love and appreciate my body a little more.
After my first I lost all the baby weight plus another 12kg by 6 months after birth. I was slightly overweight when I got pregnant though.
I'm now just over 5 months post birth with number two and I'm 4.5kg over pre-preg weight (I put on 28kg!) and am almost back into my size 8 jeans.
