View Full Version : Lost the baby weight!!!

My DD#2 is going to be 5 months old on the 26th, and I weighed in at 201, which is where I was when I got pregnant with her. This is a big victory, because with my DD#1, I was obese when I conceived (270 or so) but had violent all day sickness and lost about 20lbs with her, so I was back up to pre-pregnancy when I had her, then dropped 20 lbs by my six week appointment. So I looked great postpartum (Yeah, I eventually put it all back on, but it took a year to do that from the point where I gave birth)

With this pregnancy, I was constantly queasy but not violently vomiting like I did with my first. I ate healthy, but that first 13 weeks or so the only thing that I could keep down was macaroni and cheese, so I put on 30 lbs with her. I was horrified that after six weeks postpartum, I DID NOT LOSE ANYTHING!! So I started working out and counting calories at 8 weeks in, since I had a C-section, and then the scale started moving in the right direction. So I'm proud. So ready to move on and get to my desired weight.

Congratulations!!! Having the baby weight gone at 5 months is a HUGE accomplishment! It always takes me at least a year... Blah. Way to go on all of your hard work!

Congrats! I'm also 5 months (my son born Nov 5) so I appreciate how hard that is although I'm sure even more difficult with a section recovery. You should be very proud!!

And it's much harder with more than 1 kid too LOL!!
