    I'm already 30kg overweight I accidentally found out what my weight was when they weighed me at the doctors yesterday, I really didn't want to know.

    I'm only 10 weeks though, how am I going to avoid putting on much more weight? I really don't need it...plus I don't want to have to try to lose like 50kg+ after the birth...30 will be hard enough *cries*

    I was 55kgs pre pregnancy, went down to 53kgs from morning sickness and went to 61kgs when I had DS at 36weeks. I went straight back into my normal clothes and went down to 45kgs breastfeeding. DS is nearly 2 and I am still struggling to put weight on sitting at 47kgs

    7kg.

    I had a caesarean and the first chance I got to weigh myself was about a week afterwards... and I'd lost that 7kg plus another 7kg as well. I didn't get any crazy cravings and never had that "eating for two" thing some people talk about... I actually ate less because I felt my stomach didn't have enough room.

    My 7kg gain was obviously just baby-only weight (baby, placenta, etc). She was 4.67kg.

    If you eat healthy and start doing some light exercise (so go for a brisk walk for 45 minutes 3-4 times a week) and keep that up through your pregnancy you might find you don't gain anything. You might find you don't gain much at all if you do that, if anything. I ate healthy and exercised and gained 13-14kg each time but I lost it all straight away too.

    Pre-pregnancy, I was about 46kg then went up to 72kg at the end of the pregnancy. DS was born 3.4kg and 3 lucky months later, I'm 54kg. I haven't actually done any exercise other than walking but I think I can thank breastfeeding for my rapid weight lose.

    I gained 13kg. I gained nothing until I was 20 weeks and then put on weight over the next 18 weeks. It was all belly and boob - you couldn't tell I was pregnant from behind. I lost 6kg immediately and four months afer DS was born I am only 1kg above my pre-pregnancy weight.

    Thanks, I have been going for walks, and I plan to keep doing that once bub arrives.

    Does breastfeeding really help to lose weight?

    I gained 34kg and gave birth at 36 weeks. I was told bubs gain the most weight in the last 4 weeks and seeing as DS already weighed 3kg at 36 weeks, I believe I have been spared quite a few stretchmarks and extra kilo's.
    Most of the weight was fluid retention in my legs, feet, arms and hands, plus amniotic fluid ofcourse.

    As I breastfed exclusively for 4.5 months, most of the weight was lost in that time. Also being a single mum with a newborn and doing it all on your own, adds the extra stress and exhaustion which causes weightloss as well.
    I was back to pre-pregnancy weight after about 6-8 months.
