Of course every woman is different and a few may find that they go back to pre pregnancy size very quickly, but for the vast majority it takes much longer.
Don’t be surprised if you’re still wearing maternity clothing for a while after the birth. As well as the extra fat you will have stored during pregnancy (which is utilized well if you are breastfeeding), Your body will have produced a lot of extra blood to circulate around your body and probably retained water.
