Ladies, did you exercise while you were pregnant?

How much weight did you put on?

Did you lose the weight quickly after?

How long did you exercise up to during your pregnancy?

Sorry for lots of questions I'm very interested in this for myself.

With my first child I gained 15lbs and left the hospital 25lbs lighter. I didn't gain a lot because I was young and always on the go. I lost the weight because I ended up having some complications.

With my second I gained around 20-25 lbs. I rarely sat still and I was back in a 7 within two weeks of giving birth with no stomach.

My last one I gained about 50-60 lbs. It was a hard pregnancy and I had a girlfriend who fed me all the time. I was a 4 before I got pregnant and afterwards I was a 10. That was the only pregnancy I had to work hard to get the weight off.

I do not have a high metabolism. People in my gene pool tend to be on the larger side. What I had to my advantage was youth and just generally being active. Although, I really love food I was always too busy to eat and vegetate.

If I ever get pregnant again best believe my pregnancy will be spent weight training and doing cardio.

I'd like to know more about this as well. It amazes me how some people gain a lot, and others only gain a few pounds. A lot of people say genetics play a big factor in weight gain, but my mom is of the mindset that your diet and exercise play the biggest role.
