Saggy stomach after csection

how long did it take for the stomach to get back to normal? I had csection a month ago and belly is saggy and big. I'm breastfeeding so can't go on diet yet. Does your stomach ever get back to normal or at least close to it?

  • Mine's still not "normal" and my son is 3. (I think a lot has to do with my age, I'm 41. I've also had abdominal surgery, so that's a lot of cutting on those muscles!). I know women who looked good after just a few months.

  • I'm still struggling to get mine back to "normal," and my daughter is 4 now. I agree with 5BabyBees, I think it just depends on you personally. Everyone's body is different!

  • I had this same questions. I had a c-section 9 weeks ago and though i was a little too big before my stomach looks awful now. Super saggy and i have so many stretch marks.... it's worse than i thought it would be but it is soo worth it!
