I did nothing and lost it all almost straight away. Though I did slowly start putting it back on.
I've been walking DD in her pram an hour a day which is helping as I always eat healthy but have never exercised.

I am so very lucky to have bounced back to under my pre-baby weight within two weeks.
Having said that though my tummy is still soft and squelchy at 6 weeks pp with DD2. It hides well under clothes though
I gained 12kg with DD1 and 10kg with DD2 and that weight (and then some) fell off me as soon as my milk came in. Breast feeding really sheds my weight and its the ONLY time in my life that I can eat pretty much whatever I want without it going straight to my hips!
I have to be careful though, because when DD1 weaned at 17 months 2-3kg crept up on me so I will try to minimise that this time around by making healthier choices.
Everyone is so different. I had a pretty difficult pregnancy so I'd much rather have a smooth pregnancy and deal with losing excess weight afterwards than have a difficult pregnancy and no weight issues IYKWIM.

My DS is 5 months and I'm still 5 kgs heavier pre pregnancy. It's so frustrating. Being on maternity leave means I have all this time on my hands so I find myself eating constantly! I treadmill almost everyday but I hate hate hate exercise and love love love food!!

I'm also a lucky one, pre pregnancy I was 89kgs, lost 4kgs before I fell pregnant then a week after DS I was 72kgs lol pregnancy made me lose weight, I had no morning sickness and I never gained any while pg so stayed 85kg the whole way, I ended up with GD due to PCOS (no family history of diabetes so it was stated it was more than likely due to my weight and PCOS).
I'm not too sure if I'll be so lucky next time but I hope to one day get down to my goal weight of 60kgs

DD is 4 months old and I still have 9kg to pre baby weight, but I was underweight (49kg/small size 6) when I fell pregnant. Now I'm 58kg and a healthy size 10 and feel so much better . I gained 26kg in pregnancy!! I haven't done much exercise either, just BFing and walking.

I gained just under 7kgs with DD and lost it all within the first month. Gained half of it back after I stopped BFing. Fail

It seemed to take ages. I was 49kg pre preg and was up to about 65kg when she was born. I had a lot of fluid I think.
By about 6 months I'd probably lost most of it.
Next pregnancy I'll try and minimize how much I put on because I hated feeling big, especially being such a short ars3 I feel like a chubster when I carry extra weight. I think tall people can carry it off well and look voluptous, I just looked podgy.

My baby is 8 weeks old and im slowly gaining weight. :-/ not. Happy. Jan.
Im TRYING to control my food intake, but its too hard. Im hungry 24/7. At least though katelyn has stopped having play times at night so im not eating through the night.
Plus hot cross buns off the shelf at woolies will help too. Lol.
