Just pulled out a scale to see. I am 10 pounds down at 5 days pp. You would think between a 7lb 8oz baby, amniotic fluid, and placenta that i would have been 10 pounds down as soon as she popped out. It is going to be a really long time before I can wear any of my clothes.
Our babies are the same weight and I only lost about 10 lbs pp at 5 days too! UGh. I wanted to cry, but like I said 3 weeks and I'm 2.5 away! Hope is there.
Excuse me if my typing is bad There's probably a baby in my arms.
I lost 25 lbs at my 1st post partum appointment since getting out of the hospital. Still have another 30 lbs to lose though... I always gain a ton! Its should take me about another 6 or 7 months to take it off. I can't wait to heal up totally and get back to the gym!!!
I don't know how much I weight right now but my pre-pregnancy pants are actually a little loose on me. Went to a couple parties this past weekend and got many compliments and shocked reactions that I had a baby 3 weeks ago so that is exciting! I definitely was not this lucky with DD.. but I also did not breast feed with her. Now I'm excited to actually start working out!

I gained 12 pound with the pregnancy and I'm down 24 pounds (I had gained weight the year prior to getting pregnant so it's weight I needed to drop anyways). I still haven't tried on any of my pre-pregnancy clothes, my stomach is still poochie and I dont want to get bummed if they dont fit....but at some point I'm going to have to drag out my old clothes or go buy new ones. Or maybe just get pregnant again
Bah..when i checked at like 5 days pp i had only lost 10lbs!! Thats like baby and placenta only I was going to recheck tomorrow
This exactly! I'm so bummed! Just going home from the hospital after having my first I was 17lbs lighter... now I have 20lbs to lose and I'm pretty mad about it. to be totally exact I'm 13lbs lighter, but being that I gained 39 I'm not at all happy about where my weight is now... I feel fat, can't fit anything, maternity or non... pj bottoms are all I have at this point.
