    With my daughter I put on 2 stone and it took around a year and a half to lose the weight but I was never really happy with it!
    With my son I put on 2 stone again and 14 months later I'm lighter than I was before I fell pregnant.
    It takes time hun xx

    I put on 2 stone and lost it within a couple of weeks of giving birth. I probably didn't eat enough throughout the pregnancy. I now weigh the same as before I was pregnant but have a very flabby belly. I guess we are all different, its normal to have some additional fat stored for breastfeeding x

    I gained just over a stone, went back to pre pregnancy weight after 2 months but my hips, thighs and tummy were still bigger than they were before. I think I gained a few pounds at 3 months because I was drinking too much sugary full fat energy drinks (not good)
    Cut that out and I'm a few pounds lighter than I was pre pregnancy. That's after 7 months. But I'm not on any diets can't do them as I get obsessive, won't have scales in my house either. I was overweight before by about 2 stone!!!! Still am, but it's my own fault for eating the wrong stuff. I don't like being overweight but I'm just not motivated to do anything about it. I'm a 14 in most clothes so I'm not massive! Would be nice to go back 9 years to 21 and be a size 6 :lol:

    You'll lose if you want to Hun.

    I put on three stone and it took 7months to loose and then the same week I reached pre pregnancy weight I found out I was pregnant again so I will be back to square one again June!

    I did the first stone on my own and then joined slimming world as I started struggling after that the weight fell off me :)

    My boy is 6 months old, I put on 5 (yikes!) stone when pregnant, and have lost 3 so far. Its odd because I was a size 12 before and I'm now in 14-16 clothes, but am 2 stone heavier.

    With my DD I piled on 41/2 stone but worked hard and got rid in about 9 months, this time I vowed not to make the same greedy mistakes I made last time but things were very different and I was very ill in tri one so lost a stone and half which I never put back on so strangely I'm a stone lighter after giving birth than when I fell pregnant, same size 12 though but with a flabby belly! Think I've lost muscle tone though as I'm normally a gym addict but not back into it yet properly so guess I'll put it back on again soon!

    I was quite lucky - I think I put on a stone but it was all baby/placenta and I was back to normal weight after the birth. Lots of flabby skin though, my belly was like a deflated balloon! Only just getting back to normal shape now :)

    I put on 2 stone and lost all of it by the time Lucas 3-4 months. Now he is 7 months and I am the lightest I have ever been for some strange reason (weigh 1/2 stones less than I did pre-pregnancy). xx

    I put on a stone but like becky it was practically all baby and placenta so I lost it pretty much straight away and regained my pre-preg figure after about 6 weeks x as the others have said though it will take time-it took 9 months to put it on so it might take at least that long to lose it xxx I think you've done fantastically to lose 3 stone in 6 months xxx

    Thanks Helen, although a lot of it came off without even trying - water retention galore! I'm trying not to be obsessed, I'd rather lose it slowly but permanently but I'm seriously sick of not fitting in all my clothes! I miss them! I bet as soon as I lose it all, I'll be preggo with the next!! Lol...

    I put on 1st9lb, I was a healthy and heavy size 12 before. Have 1.5lb to go 1 month after c-section and have been eating what I want ( as healthy ad poss) as breastfeeding. Think bf is amazing for weight loss! Back in normal clothes now but have a small flabby belly which one day i will try and tone up
