Did you lose the baby weight before getting pregnant with the second?

I am still trying to lose the last of the weight I gained with the first. Did you wait to lose all the weight or just leave it until you were done having kids?

I wasn't able to have a second, but all my gf's & family were very concerned about their weight.  Now that they are older, more mature they said they would have not cared so much, as long as they were a "healthy" weight!

hahahaha, yes I did, and I thought i was ALL THAT. I had nursed my older one for 20 months. Then I had the second, and nursed him, but the weight DID NOT come off like it did with the first. And it has been hellacious trying to lose it again. I still haven't gotten there.

With almost 15 years between them I did lose it...and gain a bunch of other weight back before the second came along. I am my pre pregnancy weight from the second (I hope as he's almost 9 now) wink

I managed to lose the weight that I had gained with the 1st well before getting pregnant with the 2nd. I worked really hard after the 2nd to lose all the baby weight by the time she was 4 1/2 months old, but now I am working on the weight that I gained before kids and that is taking FOREVER!
