  • All normal after having a baby.. Yep, about 90% of women experience the same thing.. In time they do fade and yes some of it will tone back up but not always and not for everyone.. Only time will tell.. When you can, get back to your normal routine, exercise and eat right. Don't push too hard right now.

  • Right after you have a baby you get the jelly tummy. It may take some time but the jelly will go away, as for the stretch marks they may get lighter but they're here to stay.
