about 110 to 146 so 36 lbs. I am currently 120lb 5 months out. I nurse a chunky 20 lb baby too. I'm happier with my look now. I don't really miss being that thin.

yes we do! lol my son just turned 2 and Idk how I did it but lost 25 pds within the first month of having him, and that remainder 7 pds was soo tough!

Im afraid of having this excess weight too if I get pregnant again. I cant pin point that my weight caused issues in my pregnancy but im sure it was part of it. I had alot of swelling, high bp, low cord flow, and low amniotic fluid. That was at 8 months on, but being on bed rest, I think thats when I gained most of it. I bet some pounds were also just water, lol I didnt even look like myself.

Best of wishes to ya! If it comes down to it remember a baby is alot more important than weight! Im hoping to start trying maybe in the later part of this yr, but if I can I will try losing the weight first. But def. want to get prego this yr if we can losing the weight or not

Well 32 pounds is alot you should be very proud of yourself!
my husband wants another baby already, and im also scared because i definitely dont want to gain another 40 lbs! I would kill to lose 32 :)
i swear im on my feet all day and have eaten reasonably healthy AND breastfed for 14 months and not lost a pound, im starting to wonder if i have a thyroid problem!

I gained 80 pounds with my only child and have lost 32 pounds of it lol, I have had a hard time with it.
I started working out though and eating better, Ive already lost 7 inches, only like 2 pounds but Im gonna try to keep at it because I do want another baby. I have heard too its much harder to lose! which Im gonna try to be in good shape before I start trying lol, maybe it will help in the long run

I lost weight with my first baby, who is now 4, but with my son (he is 1 now) I gained about 40 lbs and I still haven't lost it all :(
Much harder to drop the weight with the second child in my opinion!
