  • For me, it was a new normal. After two children, my tummy is almost the same as before I got pregnant, except the stretch marks and a pouch.

  • I had a new normal but I had a c-sec. I would need a tummy tuck to 'fix' it. Oh well.

  • With Time and Exercise, mine went back to Normal with the exception of the little pouch. I think everyone has a little pouch after giving Birth unless they starve themselves or have plastic surgery.

  • I had a new normal as well, but it wasn't vastly different. The shape anyway, I have pretty awesome stretchmarks to show for my daughter and a few new ones for my son :)

  • Mine stomach went back to normal size but I had new stretchmarks that won't go away lol and also I had never had "love handles" until after I had my first and those stayed and wouldn't go away either but I am not much of a worker outer so that could be why...

  • before my first i was super fit, nice six pack, really thin, after her it took months to just feel comforable. i will never have that again. especially considering im carrying my 4th now.
