With DS I put on just 11kg in the pregnancy and was back to normal weight really quickly...then proceeded to gain weight AFTER he was born Eventually I lost it again (was only about 5 or so kilos).
With DD who is now nearly 7 months old, I put on 20kg in the pregnancy and then it took 4 - 6 months to get back down to pre pregnancy weight. I've done nothing special, just been breastfeeding and making sure I have small portion sizes. Everything in moderation has been the key, I believe. Plus I walk almost daily whether it be kinder drop off or to the shops with DD in the pram on the weekend. I do a lot of incidental exercise just getting from A to B because I leave my car at home a lot and walk instead.

I lost most of mine within 8 weeks because of the massive amount of breastmilk my body was producing!
Now DS is 15 months, I've stopped milking & I'm back on the pill - no idea what I weigh, but judging by the snugness of my pants I need to shed about 3-4kg to be comfortable again.

I'm still a kilo above my pre-pregnancy weight and have been since DS was about 2 months old, however my jeans are now too big so I think that extra kilo is hanging around my boobs! I put on 12 or 13 kg and lost 6 before I came home from hospital, and the rest just fell off with walking, yoga and breastfeeding.
Actually, I lie. I did get to pre-pregnancy weight at about 4 months but then poor DS couldn't get much out of my boobs one day so I freaked out and had a few tim tams. I enjoy my food and don't stress too much now - it's much more important that there's plenty of milk for DS than for me to weigh a particular wright.

I was back to my pre-preg weight by the time DS was 9 weeks old. I put on about 20kg. Breastfeeding and lots of walking with the pram helped a lot.
