Did you go into your second pregnancy with your pregnancy weight from your first?

I’m hoping to be a 2nd-time mom within the next few years when we get our life settled as we just moved a few states away from where we used to live. So my question is moms who’re first pregnancy you had weight left over after you gave birth but later lost it how did you go about your 2nd pregnancy? I had 20 extra pounds left over. I was then classified as overweight when before I was even pregnant, I was at a healthy weight. I’m scared to end up struggling with weight when I go to have the next child. I took eating for two literally. Did anyone else keep their weight under check the 2nd time around? I want to do everything in my power to keep at a healthy weight throughout my next pregnancy and hopefully, after not struggle with weight loss. Thanks & please be nice!

I weighed more with my first pregnancy and had a smaller baby at 32 weeks… my second baby was much larger than my first baby born at 34 weeks and I weighed less🤦🤷😂

I still had baby weight from 1 and 2 when I got pregnant with number 3 (175 lbs) and ended up gaining less than 10 pounds. I’m 2 months postpartum and I’m already down to 165 … Don’t focus as much on your weight gain during pregnancy but just make sure you’re making healthy eating decisions

Nope gained 10 pounds during my first pregnancy and lost 20 after birth lol I looked better after I had him then I gained 7 pounds with my daughter and lost like 40 after birth i look the best I’ve ever looked now, if it’s been months since you’ve had the first one it probably wont go away unless you make it bc it’s not baby weight anymore

I gained 65 with first 16 years ago. I lost about 50lbs in 5 months then got pregnant and put on 54lbs and now I am pregnant with my 3rd almost 14 years later and I have only gained 24 lbs I am 39 weeks… but this pregnancy I have walked every day 4-5 times for about 20-30 mins (we have a dog that likes to go on lots of walks)

Yes. I figured I’ll lose it after #2​:joy::woman_shrugging:t3:

I went into my 4th pregnancy with the weight of my first :roll_eyes::joy:

Im on preg 2 with the weight from the prev i gained afair bit with the first i didnt lose due to hormonal imbalance that tooks years to get preg but im half way in this preg now and actually haven’t gained apound i was more sick this time around too which may had a play but id gain a couple from things i was eatting example fries everyday helped with sickness for like a week i gained idk 5lbs but lost it quickly when i stopped eatting so im still at start weight half way in and my stomach hasnt changed either maybe lift slightly but cant even notice a difference from the start

My first 2 were okay after my first baby I literally went back to my regular size, after second baby it took me literally 7 years almost to lose it all, then got pregnant again, and then when she was around 17 months had another and was almost 200lbs while pregnant. Now since I’ve had my last I am between 165 and 175 I refuse to weigh myself.

I generally gained about 5 lbs from before pregnancy to 3 months after birth weights.with all 3 pregnancies… If you can do it breast feeding will help your body bounce back soooooooo much quicker…

I still have weight from my 2nd baby, i struggled more after him then i did after my first. Best we can do is eat healthy and do light exercise :purple_heart: walking is what i was told was best.

I stayed overweight after first baby… 2nd I only gained 11lbs. And lost it after

I didn’t gain a whole lot from my first pregnancy. I was literally back in my pre-pregnancy pants by my 6 week appointment. I did however gain a few pounds between my pregnancies (they were almost 9 years apart) and was 30lbs heavier when I got pregnant the second time around. I got HUGE with him. Tipped the scales at just under 200 by the time I went to deliver. I’d gained 50lbs. I was also on bedrest for nearly 4 months of my pregnancy though, so that didn’t help, and I craved carbs so heavily. I just wanted potatoes and bread.

My son is 17 months now, I’m horrible at diet and exercise, and I’m back in my pre-pregnancy pants (second pregnancy, not first).

It just depends on your genetics.

I gained 53 with my son 2 years ago and now 12 weeks pregnant with my 2nd and have lost 8 pounds during this pregnancy

Both pregnancy I started out at the exact same weight, however both pregnancies I lost about 20 pounds in the first two months of pregnancy then gained 12-15 pounds back the rest of pregnancy, little over 1.5 years after my second kiddo and I’ve ended up loosing more weight after him even though I really don’t try or need to… Hopefully for baby #3 soon. Good luck on your journey hopefully everything goes smoothly!

I had baby #4, 10 months ago.

I dropped all my baby weight with baby #1,#2.

Baby #3,#4 I’m 10lbs heavier. Stuck at 140lbs
