  • I think if its that big a "skin flap" you'll probably have to have a tummy tuck to ever get is to go away.

    I gained 60lbs during my pregnancy, DD was a week early and weighed 8lbs 12oz 21", I had an emergency c section, I was lucky enough to have my stomach go back to normal, well other then the stretchmarks :( but my stomach skin never made a "flap" don't know why that happens to some and not others...

  • I'm 7 mo post c sect & I definately still have a baby pooch, didn't before & its really starting to bother me ALOT!!! I was tiny, I mean 00 before I got pregnant & now I'm well nowhere near fitting into my old pants. I don't want to get that tiny again but getting rid of the extra 20 lbs I feel like I'm carrying like a spare tire would be great. I'm still breastfeeding so dieting's out & I walk twice a day w/ dd & the dog as it is. I don't have time in the rest of my busy day to add a workout nor do I feel the need to waste that much needed energy trying to get rid of this tummy. Wish I would have done the belly band now!!! I didn't think I needed it @ 1st & now.... So I guess my answer is, learn to live w/ it & realize that w/ out it you couldn't have the wonderful gift you have now. It really is a sacrifice to be a mom. Worry bout your waist when baby's bigger & weaned. Make sure you are walking every day!
