Body after 5th Baby

I think this is the right topic. Last March I finally took the Chantix pills to quit smoking (yippee!!), however before finishing the cycle we became pregnant (planned, just not the timing), I stopped taking the pills and remain smoke free. The problem arises with the excessive weight gain 65lbs for this pregnancy (all but 5 lbs were put on in the first 6 months), I have given birth to a 7 lb 5.5oz baby boy, went home from hospital and did not lose any weight. Tried breastfeeding (for the 1st time with this baby) and not enough milk production, so now we are bottle feeding esclusively (weight loss and milk production was never an issue before). In just 2 years could my body have changed that much that this has happened? After 4th child ( I had to much amniotic fluid with her) the weight came off with some added extra bonus pounds within 1 month ( was 20 lbs lighter than starting weight). I am still 200 lbs, when I was 140 lbs before pregnancy. I have not had my first period yet, nor have I had any of the hair loss that usually comes after birth, could my body still think that it is pregnant(Thyroid) or could this weight gain be from the Chantix use?
