  • Working out the muscles under the fat will help, but then cut out sugar and see if the bloating will go away. This is what my friend has found in her research (and she is very thin now after having cut sugar out almost completely)

  • Mine went away after my first csection. 4 1/2 weeks after my 2nd csection I wore a bikini - and looked good, but my tummy isn't as "tight" as it used to be, but then it's only been 5 weeks!
