  • it takes a long time, but you need to work hard on that, it's alot easier to lose it after natural birth as I saw my sister and a couple of friends who did. I had a c-section and I know it's hard and takes time.

  • It depends on the person. I had a csection 5 weeks ago(my 5th child, 2nd csection) - last weekend I wore a bikini at the beach (and looked good!). I didn't gain much weight during my pregnancy and I kept up my workouts throughout.

  • 2 wks after my surgery i was down 40lbs from the weight i was when i had my son. thinner than i was when i got pregnant! i never exercised or really watched what i ate but i did breastfeed my son and i truly feel that's what helped me. once he started weaning is when i started gaining weight again.
