  • Eh...maybe about 6-8 weeks or so. Those first three months were so strange, I wasn't very much aware of my body. At that point I thought I was skinny as hell because I was finally rid of the HUGE baby belly, haha.

  • I'm wondering the same thing. I had my second baby 3 weeks ago and I'm thinking my stomach will be the hardest to get back to "normal". My babies are 18.5 months apart and my second child is a boy and made my stomach hang so much lower. My stomach seriously looks like I lost 100 pounds and now it just sags. How sad. Oh-well. On Friday, I will start counting calories and go on a gluten free diet (since i've become allergic to wheat). I breastfeed too, so hopefully that helps. Good luck to you, if you've found out a way to get a flat stomach, let me know!

  • It took probably a good 3-4 mos. My DD is now 4 mos. and my belly looks the same, other than the slight swelling I still have around my c-section incision. Keep in mind this is my first child and I did exercise a lot while pregnant, but for those who told me I would never look the same, they were wrong.
