  • I gained 60lbs during my pregnancy and ended up having an "emergency" c-section.

  • after c-section #1, I got back down to 105 (was 103 pre-preg) and I had a pretty flat stomach but it was never really perfect or bikini worthy in my opinion. Although my husband thought I was crazy so maybe I am my own worst critic.
    Good luck!

  • I wish I could tell you it went back to normal, but I've had 3 sections too, and it's never been totally normal again for me. After the first it was okay. But no matter what I've done, after the 3rd, I haven't been able to get that little saggy part to go away....maybe someone else can give us both hope!!

  • I had two. I am now in my 40's. I was able to wear a bikini for most of my life, until recently that it. When I hit 40, I started to put a little weight around the belly area. I am working on it though. Will I ever wear a bikini or have a flat stomach again? Probably not. But, I feel good and that's all I care about!!

  • I've had two "c" sections and I am 53 now, had them when i was 34 and 35. I always had a flat stomach before that but can honestly say that the stomach will probably never be flat again. You just have to learn to dress differently, especially when it comes to bathing suits. There is this pouch of skin that hangs over the incision and since the incision is pulled so tight, the pouch has nothing else to do but hang over top. i am a thin person but I guess since the muscles are cut, it's very hard to firm that are up again.
