Re: PP weight loss
Surprisingly well!! I must have had a lot of water retention, my total weight gain for the pregnancy was 42 pounds, and at my 1 week post-partum appointment I was down 25. I haven't weighed myself since, but I feel like I've lost a lot more. As soon as we put batteries in our wii fit board, I'll weigh myself and check back in :)

Re: PP weight loss
As of Thursday, 6 days post baby, I was down 5lbs from my prepregnancy weight. BUT, I only ended up at +13 when I went into labor, and 10lbs of that was Evan =\

Re: PP weight loss
As of today (15 days PP), I'm down 20 pounds and my total gain was 51 pounds, so I'm pretty pleased. Once I get under 200, I'll be happy, so only 10 more to go til that.

Re: PP weight loss
I retained so much water from the surgery and IV that I left the hospital weighing more than when I checked in :(. 5 days PP I am 2 pounds under my check in weight. My abdomen is still extremely swollen, too. I hope it comes off in the next week so I can see what I have to really lose.

Re: PP weight loss
I wouldn't know. I haven't stepped on a scale since giving birth. If clothes fitting are any indication, I'm happy with how it's going. :)

Re: PP weight loss
I only ended up gaining 5 lbs by the end of the pregnancy, and Finn weighs nearly 10 lbs. I was 210 the day I went into labour, and today I'm 192. So 4 days PP. and I'm down 18 lbs.

Re: PP weight loss
I haven't weighed myself in almost a week but I was down 21lbs at 1 week postpartum. I gained 35 total and I feel like I've lost even more in the past week so I'm pleased. 14lbs or less to lose is something I can live with at this point.

Re: PP weight loss
I gained 20 total, and now 3 days PP I have 5 left. :)

Re: PP weight loss
I don't have a scale anywhere in my house but I gained 40.8lbs during pregnancy And I look like I have a tiny baby bump or baby gut but the way I feel, I feel I've possibly got another 10-20lbs to lose to be pre pregnancy weight

TeresaV June 16th, 2013 03:17 PM

Re: PP weight loss
I gained 24 pounds total. I haven't weighed myself since giving birth, but I think I weigh less now that I did pre-pregnancy. A combination of BFing and constant cluster feeding leaving me little time to eat will do that.

Re: PP weight loss
gained 38 and thanks to lots of water, no appetite and breastfeedin/pumping only 7 more to go.

Re: PP weight loss
I am back at my pre-pregnancy weight. I gained 22lbs total. :smile:

Re: PP weight loss
I gained a total of 27lbs and as of 1 week pp (last thurssay) I was down 25! A couple more pounds left to reach my pp weight but a lot left to reach my pp body! I still have a good 5-10 lbs I think of fibroids still in me :(

Re: PP weight loss
2 days PP, I am down 12 pounds. I have 14 to go. Pretty disappointed in how little I lost since she was 8lbs 7oz of just baby, plus placenta and a TON of amniotic fluid (the midwife was shocked about how much there was given my size). I have a lot of swelling still. I'm hoping that accounts for a lot. I am pretty pleased with how things are looking considering how recently I gave birth, but I am really hoping to be back to myself in a couple of weeks.

Re: PP weight loss
Just had to update so I can celebrate a small victory! I weighed myself for the first time in a week and I lost 3 more lbs!!! That puts me 11lbs away from pre preggo weight :). The kids and I have been walking everyday so maybe that is actually helping?!
