With my son, it took 5 years!! But then again, I didn't really TRY. When I decided to get off my butt and do something about the way I looked, I lost 43 lbs from may 07-may 08 by running and eating much better. Then that was the month I got pregnant!!! :rolleyes: So, we'll see with baby #2! I most certainly will not take that long this time around....if I have the time!

by about 6 mths i was back into my skinny skinny jeans [that was with my oldest] youngest it took me a bit longer, i didn't bf him for as long [only 4 mths] but i was back into them at about 10 mths or so...i have yet been able to get back into my skinny skinny jeans...i think i may have even gotten rid of them :P
 
about 1 month... give or take a week. i really took care of myself the first time around. watched what i ate, and was a little more active. I don't think i'm doing as well this time around. i really feel like i've ballooned in the past couple of weeks! eek!:shame:

I love that you are all being so honest! I have asked people and I always get these ridiculous answers...like common people not everyone can be stick thin like the stars right after a baby. One of my friends still isn't into those jeans yet and baby is 1 yr old. I hope to be in them 4 mths after...it will be spring and summer so I want to look my best (if I can muster enough energy lol) I have so far been lucky to stay fairly small in all my parts except my butt so I am hoping it won't be too hard :sweatdrop:

About 2 months to fit comfortably. I could put them on at 6 weeks PP, but they were tight. And now they are loose at 5 months 3 weeks PP.

A couple of months, but here's the thing - sometimes hip bones get wider after having babies. After two babies 15 1/2 months apart, I am the same weight as before but some of my pants don't fit the same because my hip bones got a tad wider. Pregnancy and childbirth changes you in ways besides just adding fat! Breastfeeding certainly helps the fat come off.

I gained 65 lbs during my pregnancy (115-180lbs) :faint: It took me 6 months to be able to fit back into my jeans and some were still tight. Now I can fit into them much better, but I still have about 7-10 lbs to go...I BF for 7 months and I haven't gotten back into my exercise routine yet - only exercise I get now is chasing after a crawling baby :P

I agree with LV Luvr - you should give yourself 9 months to lose it since it took 9 months to gain it!
