    I lost the weight I put on afterwards quite easily and I am sure it's down to the breastfeeding. I lost quite a lot straight afterwards and in the first few weeks which I think was the fluid I'd gained, I did Weight Watchers for a few weeks and lost a stone, the remaining stone odd came off pretty easily. I think it was a combination of not eating so much, running around after Ella and breastfeeding which burns off quite a lot of calories. I've found this time I haven't eaten so much and haven't put on nearly as much weight the first time - whether it's because I'm expecting a different sex, who knows!

    H i found after the birth of marley that i lost weight pretty quickly due to the fact i was breastfeeding and after 7 months was back to a size 8! I didn't diet or take any contraception tho (thats y im pg again! oops) any pill make me pile on the pounds.

    Breastfeed for longer than 6 months and u should be lookin trim in no time and try your hardest not to over eat while pg its harder to shift after a baby your matabalism works slower

    I found that, I was a woolly mamoth by the time I had jess but with Joe I wasnt as large as I had to run around after Jess and couldnt spend 9 months on the couch sleeping.
    It came off quicker after as well. Im still size 14 but he is only 3 months and I havent made an effort so imagine what will happen when I go back to the gym.
    Have you been sicker second time round kina?

    No, which is why I was sure it was another girl. I always assumed that I'd be puking my guts up with a boy, but I was only sick once, just felt really sick like with Ella.

    Will you find out? I was sick as a dog with Joe, really ill but with Jess it was just a little bit. I put it down to it being the second pg and not being able to rest much but no, it was definately different. I had my suspicions it was a boy but didnt want to say too much as its all girls in my family and I didnt want people to think I was hankering for a boy when I wasnt really bothered.
    Hope you are keeping well.

    I just dieted moderatly. Iate soups for lunch normally as they are very low fat. Just good healthy diet, a couple of detox treatments, to help restore my body to some sort of normality after having baby. The nly thing Ididnt really do was a lot of exercise, so the mucles in my tum are still rubbish, but thats cause I knew we were going to try for another soon, so #I couldnt be bothered to do loads of exercise jsut to stop again in a few months. But after this one Iwill be hitting the gym like a woman posessed!

    ive just started eating loads more fruit and veg than i used to, exercising and swapping my favourite things for the low fat versions. for example, i LOVE curry. so instead of a takeaway 1, for my tea ive just had one of the weight watchers curry ready meals, followed by a low fat chocolate mousse. when by belly settles i'll be doing my sit ups, and prob doing some step ups on the stairs. its working for me, ive lost 5lbs this week :D

    I added around 25-26 kgs. Was 76 kgs after delivery. Now I'm 64kgs. I still have to loose 6-7 kgs to get back to my pre preg weight. I'm not BFing. All what I did is control my diet. I have to start exercising soon, but I cant really get motivated :(

    After my daughter I did lots of walking and breastfeeding and I lost the weight pretty easily. This time it's harder - I got my driving license! and I'm not breastfeeding :-( so I'm fat and unfit.

    I'm thinking I might start going swimming in the evenings.
