  • with my first 2, i looked normal again by 2-3 weeks. i'm almost 2 months post-partum with my last & i'm still pretty chunky. i think i'm going to need to work out this time.

  • Sadly, my youngest is 3 years old and it still hasn't gone down. Sigh.

  • Mine never went flat again. It does not matter what I do. It always has that extra skin flap.

  • Mine took bout 6 weeks to get into a size 11. My stomach had gone down but I was still chubby. It took me another year and a half to get my abs back. I am hoping with this one my tummy goes back sooner since I am staying healthy and not eating like I did before.

  • My stomach went down greatly shortly after I delivered my children. I still had a little looseness.. But I was able to wear my pre pregnancy size home from the hospital.
