I gained 70 with my daughter. Had hoped she was going to be a 65 pound baby, but no dice. With breastfeeding that little one and rarely getting a full meal in, I was down to my pre-pregnancy weight in about 5 months. I say let it ride and enjoy yourself.

Omg!! I love the talenti gelato.

I think everyone is different. I gained 35 with my daughter but it took almost a year to lose the baby weight and I exclusively breastfed (which is supposedly a huge calorie burner). A friend of mine gained 75+ lbs and was in pre-baby jeans by 4 months pp. The boring advice of ‘everything in moderation’ is what is best in my opinion. Have some treats and try to get in some exercise. There are great, low impact prenatal workouts out there that do help keep you strong. Which you need all your strength and muscle for labor & caring for a newborn.

4 weeks left and I might have cleaned out a jar of nutella faster than I would have liked 🤭. Also started my pregnancy overweight 😒

I’m 8 weeks out but right in the same trajectory. Started my pregnancy a little overweight too... All I want is ice cream and brownies ☹️

Hard to do more than walking when you are lugging around 40 extra pounds, am I right?

Gained 25 and at two months pp I’m still 15 lbs over pre pregnancy weight. And exclusive breastfeeding is not helping because I am ravenous after every feed and eat whatever I can find (mostly junk). 😕 good thing no one is traveling anywhere around these parts and I can rock my joggers all day long.

Gained 26 but only because I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes and it was controlled with diet and I had doctors checking in on me every 2 weeks 😆 my biggest luxury was no sugar peanut butter. What a sad life that was.

It has its own entrance, and the backyard is beautiful. I have an amazing, large double shower, and a beautiful kitchen and nice closet with laundry.
