I'm always amazed by the many different experiences women have - and are okay with - in regards to pregnancy and childbirth. Since pregnancy and childbirth are a couple of my favorite subjects (still!), I like to hear lots of stories.
Just the other day I was talking with someone about how much weight we had gained while pregnant. She had gained less than 20 lbs and was really happy about that. I was never unhappy with the 40+ lbs I gained! Of course, I lost the 10 lbs that was real baby weight (yes, my daughter was on the large side ;) ) immediately, but I think I was back to my pre-pregnancy weight within a month or so without any fast weight loss program - just breastfeeding and the same metabolism I've always been blessed with ;)
