Have you lost the baby weight you gained during pregnancy?

And if your pregnant how much baby weight have you gained, if any?

I've only gained a couple of pounds, but I'm almost to the second trimester and then I'll start packing 'em on!

I gained 18 according to my scale and 20 according to the doctors. I lost it all within 3 weeks of having Lily.

Ha. 80lbs. I have really horrible swelling issues. My mom gained 90 lbs with me and lost 50 within the first 7 days after I was born. I bet I'm half fluid & baby and half pure fat. I had just lost a significant amount of weight before I got pregnant and I did it the wrong way. I was barely eating and over exercising. Therefore, my body just hung onto every extra calorie causing a lot of weight gain. I've eaten very unhealthily too lol. I will lose it though, the right way this time

Ashley, my best advice to you to lose the baby weight is breast feed! It does wonders to help slim you down!

I couldnt agree more!!! It has done wonders for me too. Althought i just pump my milk and i am still losing the weight. I am sure like you said half of that is just fluid and will be gone in no time.

Breastfeeding helped me as well! Although I do know a few women who breastfed who didn't lose the last few pounds until after their baby weaned.

I lost 3 pounds in the first trimester, and I've gained those back. So, I'm back to my pre-pregnancy weight now.
