PLUS I ALSO HAD GESTATIONAL DIABETIS AND HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE IF I WOULD OF KNOWN I WOULD OF NEVER HAD KIDS NOW I'M STUCK WITH WEAK MUSCLES IN MY TUMMY AND EVEN THOUGH 4 YRS HAVE PASSED I STILL LOOK 6 MONTHS PREGNANT ITS HORRIBL! WHAT CAN I DO? I'VE ALREADY EXERCISED AND TRIED DIETS AND NOTHING HELPS, I ASKED THE DR. IF A TUMMY TUCK WOULD HELP BUT HE SAYS NO BECAUSE ITS WEAK MUSCLES THAT I HAVE, AND THAT I WOULD NEED A MESH BUT I'M AFRAID OF THAT BECAUSE IVE READ IT BRINGS LOTS OF COMPLICATIONS IN THE LONG RUN:(
