    Is this average?

    I've lost 3 stone (42lb) since Megan was born! Obviously that includes bump but I've no idea what I was straight after just know what I was a couple of hours before she came in to the world.

    :D
     
  2. I was 8 stone before being preggo. Before she was born I was 10 stone 4 lbs. The day after she was born I was 10 stone 4lbs! :rofl: Now Im 9stone... and not losing any anytime soon.

    if i remember right i went from 9 1/2st pre pregnancy, 14st by the end of it and it took me about 6mths to get down to 10 1/2st, which i cant seem to get past. 3st in a month is good going though!!

    I put on 4 and 1/2 stone (eeek) during pregnancy. 2 stone came off in the first 2 weeks (1st was baby, amniotic fluid and placenta and I think the 2nd stone was mostly water retention as my body seemed to deflate all over!) and I've only lost 3 lbs in the last 6 weeks...so having to pull the running shoes on now to get rid of the rest.

    I don't feel like i've lost any!! about half a stone but that was all baby!!

    I wonder if it's because i'm breast feeding. I know some women don't lose until they stop breast feeding. How cruel is that!!
