    I think genetics really play a big part and the way you whilst your pregnant, pre pregnancy weight was 53kg I put on 10kg at full term and a month postpartum I was 50kg (breastfeeding) and still an 50kg at 10 months postpartum. I think watching what you eat, eating healthy fats and drinking lots of water is good! Although I ate junk while he was pregnant that was my craving 😁

    My DS is 15 weeks and I've lost about half of the 14kg I put on. I'm doing the exercise I was doing before I was pregnant and trying (not always succeeding!) to eat well. I'm not stressing though - 9 months on, 9 month off, as they say!

    @Belle201 yeah that's a good motto to run by and it's good that you're not stressing about it

    Nothing. I gained 16 kg, lost 12 in the first week and another 8 in the next couple of months, so I'm 4 kg lighter than when I fell pregnant.
    I breastfed for the first month, I think that at the sleep deprivation got rid of it all.
    I've always eaten fairly healthy and exercised regularly.

    Nothing for me too. Definitely agree with Rose and Aurelia that watching what you eat and trying to stay active while pregnant helps. I put on 12kg with DD, I fit back into my jeans 2 weeks after having her. I'm pg again at the moment, so far have lost weight due to morning sickness, so hoping I don't put on too much this time either, although I think I'll start showing a lot sooner, tummy muscles aren't what they used to be!

    I didn't gain too much because I didn't go full term - I think I put on around 9-11kg.

    I found the weight melted off me when I was expressing loads of milk/breastfeeding my premmie DS. I would have been slimmer than pre-pregnancy there for a while.

    4 years on and I'm only a little bigger than I was pre-pregnancy.

    Default What did you do to lose weight after pregnancy?

    I was wearing my prepregnancy jeans at dd1s second birthday party, when dd2 was 3 weeks old. But to actually get rid of all the wobbly bits and be back to normal took a bit longer, I seemed to carry a bit of extra flesh until I stopped breastfeeding, then it all just fell away (along with my boobs!)

    I won't give you my actual height and weight as it tends to alienate people to know how low my bmi is.
