I gained 30 lbs. w/Avery, she weighed 6 lbs. 14 oz. at birth. She's now 16 days old, and I'm only down 10 lbs...so what gives?! Thought I'd be down 15-20 w/placenta, water wt.,  etc...

I know it's way too early to think about trying to lose, just wondering how much everyone's lost naturally after delivery?

I only gained seven pounds with Brianna total for the pregnancy. I weighed on Tuesday, which was a week postpartum and I'm down 20 pounds. I was amazed to say the least! I'm hoping with exclusively breastfeeding her my extra weight continues to come off...

I gained 42 pounds and I'm down between 23 and 25. I thought I'd be down a little bit more by now honestly even though it's only been 16 days....I don't have anything to wear and it's depressing. I just have this flabby stomach. Yuck!

I know, I'm wearing maternity jeans ackkk so tired of those things. Ok what's up, I'm only down 10...not fair. LOL I so want a tummy tuck (among other things lol) my mil was just telling me about some new procedure she saw on the Doctors t.v. show today that looked interesting.

With the other two girls I gained quite a bit and never really lost all of the weight. With DD2 I gained 88 pounds. Tongue Tied Not sure how that happened. I never exclusively breastfed them, either. But gaww. Poor Brianna is constantly on me. This morning from 3:30 am to 8:30 am I was feeding her off and on. I'm eating all the time too so I can make enough milk for her. I'm hoping she slacks up some soon though so I can start feeling "normal" again.

I wasnt really trying actually. I was just breastfeeding. I definitely wasnt dieting. Now that I am no longer breastfeeding I better start dieting!

If you keep breastfeeding you will lose a whole lot more. Just keep it up. At least you are still bfing. I am no longer doing it.Sad

Thanks Shaven, I hope it starts dropping soon here... I have lost 4 more lbs. in the past week so I guess that's something.

What happened w/the Bfing? I'm struggling because I have to pump and then bottle feed Avery which SUCKS! I'm trying hard to get her back to nursing and no bottle but the lil stinker just falls asleep and doesn't eat enough so then I have to give her the darn bottle...very frustrating.

I have officially stopped breastfeeding after only three weeks. When the baby turned a week and a half I got a stomach virus. I was told by ds's pedi partner not to breastfeed him while sick. Then my dh, and two dd caught it and I was stuck taking care of them for the week in which I did not breastfeed at all. It was just easier for me to give him the bottle and most of those days he stayed with my mother to prevent him from catching the virus. Now, I havent been able to pump anything since then and my ds is no longer interested in feeding off my breast. He either wont take my breast or he will fall asleep. I feel so bad and like such a big loser! I was so proud of myself being able to breastfeed and I paid 90.00 for a pump that I only used for a week and a half!
