Question?

I had my baby two months ago, but my skin is just hanging off me.  I see the pictures that others post of their post belly stomachs and none of them have this extra hanging skin.  Is this skin abnormal?  When does it usually tighten up and come back to pre-baby tightness?  Does it ever go back or will I forever have all of this extra skin?

That will like depend on genetics and whether you had a c-section or not. My belly got destroyed by my last baby... However... I will tell you that I was 39.. and it was my second c-section. I think they probably cut some muscle necessary to keep the skin tight there. Anway... I'll be 42 this year and my stomach looks a lot better than it did two months after he was born, but there is still a skin flap over my c-section scar.

But... none of this means that yours will not eventually go back the way it was. The only thing you can do is eat right, exercise and hope for the best.
