Seriously. I've been wondering, but today it's the worst it's ever been! My son is 15 months old and I'm very happy with my body now and I think I lost most of my weight but its obviously moved around lol.

Well when I eat my stomach can get huge. Like look pregnant huge. Right now I really look like pregnant when you first start showing!

So after baby when you eat the stomach can really stretch far. I wonder if there's anything I can do about that?

your abdominal muscles are weak.  you need to tighten the core.  after a baby, it's normal but work at getting your core toned.  

btw, you should always have your core engaged when you're upright; it alleviates any pressure from your lower back and promotes good posture.

 You need to strengthen your abs. There are exercises you can do for that.

because it is stretched out from the pregnancies.  Unless you wear a corsette/girdle or get surgery.

Ab exercises.  Crunches, and that sort of thing.
