I gained 70 lbs with my first in 2010 and 30 lbs with my second in 2012. The weight is not coming off like it did the first time with my daughter and even then I still felt huge and was holding steady at 178lbs but I'm only 5"2. With my son, I didn't gain as much weight as before but I am still tipping the scales at 185lbs. I am having difficulty finding clothes that are appropriate for my size and I feel like I'm still buying clothes for the body I had before my two kids. Buying clothes in the mall is an embarrassment for me anymore. I went to H&M like two or three weeks ago and asked a sales associate to help me find clothes in their Euro sizes but she ushered me into the Maternity section. After just having a baby 4 months ago. I don't want to wear maternity clothes and the clothes they had for my size were very unflattering and quite boring and they did not have a great deal of variety in larger sizes. In Forever 21, I had the same issue. I don't have time to exercise I'm 24/7 stay-at-home mom and my husband is of no help. I just don't feel attractive at all anymore and I feel like my body has aged like 30 years.
