Out of curiosity, what was your pregnancy weight and post pregnancy weight with child #1, 2, 3 ,etc. Did you gain more with each? Less? Did the pregnancy weight come off just as fast as the first? Or not?

Pre pregnancy with both I was around 98lbs. I got to 130 with my first and 116 with my second. Went back to 98lbs after both but gained weight while nursing my second. I got to 125 but now I am around 115-117.

I have only had one child, but I gained more after I had him while breastfeeding than I did during the entire pregnancy. My issue was related to medical issues though, and I don't suspect that it is typical, but idk.
