iVillage: Ready to Lose the Baby Weight? Here's How to Get Started

When Can I Expect to Get Back to My Pre-Pregnancy Weight?

Sorry, but it's not tomorrow -- and that's okay. "Women need to give themselves a break," says Dr. Wilder. "Don't compare yourself to your friend who can fit back into her size 2 skinny jeans in weeks. That isn't the norm. It takes a lot of time to get your body back."

Remember: It took nine months to grow your baby, so assume that it'll probably take you another 12 months to get back into shape. And by "back into shape," we mean fit and healthy. There's a chance that not everything will ever look exactly like it did before (maybe your hips will be ever-so-slightly wider, your stomach not as perfectly flat), but you can get pretty darn close.
