i gained 75lbs during my pregnancy. it was awful. i had a gastric bypass 5 years ago and due to that the baby had trouble gaining weight. i was asked to had extra shakes and protein to get her going, but it only seemed to cause me to gain! after birth i lost 38lbs right away (breast feeding helps) but now its time to hit the gym!
I don't count the 8 pounds I gained a week after i found out I was pregnant. I quit smoking cold turkey which made me gain some extra weight. The doctors like to consider that baby weight. But it was the fact that I smoked cigarettes regularly for 6 years without ever quitting. So quitting the day I found out I was pregnant effected my weight gain!!
