How much weight did you gain and your baby weigh by the time your first child was born?

I went from 126 to 171 (after my water broke). My baby weighed 6 15. Don't let the weight gain bother you. Your beautiful and you can take the time to slim down after the baby is born. Lots of protein and exercise after the little one is here. It will slim you down fast.

This might sound weird, but I lost weight with my twin pregnancy. I was horribly ill, but I also had a higher BMI to begin with. By the 37th week I was the same weight when I first got pregnant, and then when I had them, I was 35 lbs lighter! (I totally wish I kept it off though!) lol

I gained almost 50 lbs during my first pregnancy (yikes!), but my son weighed 10 lbs 3 oz, so 3 weeks after he was born, I was back to pre-pregnancy weight! It probably helped that he had collic, so I was walking him around and bouncing him 24/7, so I missed countless meals and probably walked about 5 miles a day!

I gained 13 lbs with my baby and she weighed 7 lbs 8 oz, she arrived a week early. :) But with nursing, I lost it all within the first month (and she's almost 7 months old now and I'm still losing weight).

I gained about 40lb with my first and he was 10lb and about 25lb with my daughter and she was 9lb 4oz Both a little overdue, i dont think weight gain has anything to do with the babys weight, its more about how much water your carrying!!

I gained probably between 35 and 40 lbs (don't know for sure as I don't have scale in my house to know what I was when I started) and he was 9lbs 11oz my friend gained like 15 pounds and her baby was 9lbs 4 oz so weight gain has nothing to do with size
