I wore mine for about a month then treated myself to some new (enormous) clothes. Finally got into old clothes at 6 months.

Saw a friend yesterday who gave birth to an 11 pounder 3 weeks ago who is back in her size 8 jeans

Hmmm, yes me!

Although I had 8 stone to lose - cumulative effect of 2 pregnancies etc etc.

Lost nearly 6 stone of it now and binned all maternity clothes.

For the first few weeks probably, especially after ds1. Was back in my normal cords/jeans after 2 weeks with ds3 - 3 boys under 4 =n o sitting down = losing weight pronto without much effort!

Yes - it was!!! Wasn't really the pregnancies that did the damage, but comfort eating because something really bad happened.

Anyway, the difference physically, now I shifted most of it is great.

I have promised myself never to let my weight get out of hand again.

I find maternity clothes unutterably depressing once I have squeezed baby out.

stretchy stuff and dhs trackpants for home for me.
