Re: how much did you gain during pregnency

I gained around 10/11 kilo

I lost almost all of it a week after birth (bar 1 kilo) and in the 8 months since having him I am almost back up to my full term pregnancy weight so much for breast feeding doing wonders

Anyway I'd not worry people I know gained almost 4 stone (not sure onversions) and they were stick then before hand and stick thin 6 weeks after

Re: how much did you gain during pregnency

I gained 14 with my first born and 15 with my second born. With both I lost about 10kg within the first few days after the birth and the remaining few kg's I lost within around 3 months.

Re: how much did you gain during pregnency

between 12-20kg. It takes me about 2 years after to get back to my 'low' weight...I lose most of the pregnancy weight after birth, but then as others mentioned, seem to store a bit for breastfeeding and I also found that I tend to eat to stay awake...not a good idea over a long period of sleep-deprivation such as the first two years of parenting...

About 1/3 of my pregnancy weight is fluid, about 1/3 the baby plus placenta etc, and about 1/3 fat...

Re: how much did you gain during pregnency

I gained about 18 kilos with both. I also stayed active and was exercising 3 days before I had my son and the same with my daughter. As long as you stay active, you'll be fine in labor. I was always told labor is like a marathon. You need to prepare for it.

Re: breastfeeding most people lose, but some of us gain!! I wish I had that to help me get back! I am CONSTANTLY hungry while nursing!

Re: how much did you gain during pregnency

Funnily enough I lost weight, about 8 kilos, during my pregnancy. I was 11 kilos lighter than my pre-pregnancy weight a week after I gave birth.
I think it was due to the lack of alcohol intake...., as I've managed to put some of the weight back on...

Re: how much did you gain during pregnency

I gained 10kg and was 1kg less than my original weight the day the baby was born but I had chronic morning sickness throughout so everything I managed to eat went straight to baby and not me . I lost another 2kg in three months after having her but that was mainly due to not having someone to force me to eat and the stress of leaving her father

I also lost weight during pregnancy - I could tell visually on my arms, legs face etc... that they were slimmer while bump was growing as I had zero appetite throughout pregnancy - but I seem to be making up for that now! I hope the weight gain is due to breast feeding and constantly feeling hungrier but regardless it needs to be nipped in the bud SOON!

Re: how much did you gain during pregnency

I also effectively lost weight during pregnancy. I gained 2kg throughout and was 11 kg lighter than pre pregnancy on the day he was born.

My OH reckoned my backside had just shifted forwards. Shame it's shifted back and gained a bit since though

Birth was perfectly normal. He arrived almost 4 weeks early weighing 3.3 kg after a 2 hour labour (i'm pretty happen he didn't go to term as he could have been a whopper!). I don't think weight gain has any bearing on the labour and delivery.

Re: how much did you gain during pregnency

15 kilos with number one, but i was still able to run up to 32-33 weeks and stayed active the remaining two months. lost all of the weight within the first few months.

number two was an entirely different story . i passed on the running early on because i was so depleted from the first tri blahs, still breastfeeding number one, everything else that i thought i'd take up exercise again in the second tri. big mistake. keep up with your workouts when you're pregnant, no matter how much you don't feel like it. gained more like 18 kilos with the second and i'm having a heck of a time dropping the weight this time around . i'm hoping that i'll lose some once she starts eating solids and i'm breastfeeding less!

Re: how much did you gain during pregnency

If I'm not mistaken my wife gained 18kg with our first daugher, and lost some 12kg or so right after birth. It took her about a year or so to go back to her pre-pregnancy weight, and about 2 years to go back to her figure (according to her claims, to me she looked as gorgeous as ever). With our son she gained about the same (although he was over 4kg at birth), but lost it all so fast. We think it might have something to do with the fact that Julia was born with a C-section and Nicolas was a natural birth. Same thing with our third...she lost all her weight and went back to her previous shape within a year.

Re: how much did you gain during pregnency

I think 15 kilos is not a lot of course this depends on your usual weight. My aunt gained 22 kilos (regualr weight was 70 Kg) during her last pregnancy but then again her baby weighted 5 kilos, she lost 20 kilos in the first 10 days post partum. Just be sure you eat healthily and control blood pressure..best wishes

Re: how much did you gain during pregnency

When you ask this question, you also need to know what was the BMI of the person before the pregnancy. Because the answers are showing you that mostly none took a large amount of weight and lost it all very fast. But was those women all super slim, normal or overweight when became pregnant? It is a major factor of the weight intake.

I mesure 165cm (5'6) I weighted 54 kilos when I became pregnant with my first. I went up to 73 kilos. It took me a bit more than a year to go back down to 58 with hashimoto decease. I went up to 73 kilos again with my second and 3 months post-partum I am 63-64 ( with hell lots of water because it is so hot in here)

I am trying to control my thyroid again and with a personal trainer starting in September, I am hoping to go back to 54 with muscle weight. And hopefully I can get rid of that amount of water. I must have a 5 kilos easily just of water.

So depending of your weight before, it is normal if you take a lot, and it is healthy. Don't stress yourself with that, as long as you eat well and healthy food, you'll be back in shape. But it cantake some time depending of how your body react to those bloody hormones.....
