  • I think it all depends on you. The weight doesn't come off as easy with c-section as with natural birth but you can go back to how you were before if you work hard at it. Is going to take more weeks with a c-section to start exercising but it all has to do with will power

  • mostly harder to loose the tummy weight after a c section. it will help a lot of you're planning on breastfeeding. that will make your uterus go down a lot faster and it burns 750 calories a day

  • I had all c-sections. I lost between 20-30 lbs. by the time I left the hospital! Which was a surprise b/c I also lost weight all DURING my pregnancies... I ate and ate, but couldn't gain! Total opposite of my regular metabolism!
