I gained 20 lbs. and had lost 15 by the time I got home. Over the next 2 weeks, I lost another 15 lbs. 10 months later, I'm still at 10 lbs. below my prepreg. weight..but haven't lost another pound.

I gained 45 pounds, most of which I think was water weight in my legs. I was pumped up with fluids and pitocin after delivery in the hospital due to rapid blood loss, so after delivery the scale read that I had lost only 5 lbs. My son weighed almost 8 lbs. Within a week, I was down 20 lbs. from my pre-delivery weight and had lost the additional water weight from the IV. Waiting til next week for a second weigh-in.

Hopefully, this weight loss will continue and I can get down to my goal weight. (I really wanted to lose weight before getting preg) I have to wait for the ok before I start my exercise.

MRSELLA- In my experience you'll continue losing weight for a week or two after delivery. I held on to a lot of water weight for about 2 weeks with all my kids.

Not to mention that your hormones are still going crazy and you're starting to produce breastmilk (which will take a couple weeks to regulate).

Even now (7 months post partum) I weigh at least a pound more before I breastfeed.

Don't worry it's totally normal and it will come off! Congratulations on your new baby!

I was 148 when I found out I was pregnant, around 165 when I gave birth (the last month I actually lost some weight because I was miserable and could not eat, the highest I got was 170) and now I weigh 130. But I am hoping to get down to 110-115.

I lost 8.5 pounds of the 25 I gained when I got back from the hospital and now 5 days after delivery weigh 14 less. I had a lot of swelling from all the IV fluid they gave me because I kept throwing up.

I am pleased to say that I lost another 3 pounds today so I am now 17 pounds down at 6 days after delivery.

Yes Lord did I gain weight in the end!!! I did alright intil the last three weeks....I gained a total of 19 pounds in three weeks. When I started out I was 139. at the in of my prenancy I was 201. When I got home I was 178. Then I put the scales up!!! I am now 143 and my baby is 13mths old. I also have two 2years olds I am busy all the time but it is just coming off sooo slow...I also am still breastfeeding. I go to the gym 3 times a week and weight train and jog on the tread mill for 20 mins. It just take some people more time then others.....I am not one of the lucky ones!!

I have lost a total of 22 lbs at 6 wks pp... I return to work soon (active duty military) so hopefully getting back into my workout routine, the rest of the weight will come off. It was weight gain was great until the last 4-5 weeks of my pregnancy, when it's supposed to slow down, I packed on 15 lbs easily, it was as if my metabolism stopped completely. If it wasn't for that, i would only have 13 more pounds to lose, but sadly I have 30 more now! anyone else mysteriously gain a crazy amount of weight the last few weeks!?
