Just had a baby exactly 7 days ago. My stomach dropped down tremdously but I want it gone. How does it look so far? What excercises would you recomend to get my stomach flat again? Any tips?

You still have a few weeks to heal give your body some time.

 Are you nursing?

Nursing really helps getting your uterus back down..

You look great momma, I bet in another few weeks you'll look just as you used to.

Give it another week or so, your uterus is still shrinking back to pre-pregnancy size, so I wouldn't rush it.  Enjoy the new baby & get rest while you can.  sit ups can come later.  From what I can tell you will be pretty flat once your uterus is back to normal, so don't stress over it.

Wait at least 6weeks or you get the okay from the doctor.

I wouldn't recommend any exercising this soon. Breast feeding will shrink your uterus back quickly and light walking will keep you in shape. Wait 6 weeks before any strenuous exercise. Don't hurt yourself.

Sit ups? Water aerobics are wonderful

Actually, I'm already 25 pounds lighter then when I got pregnant. Just hoping I get to finally have a flat stomach! LOL

I looked like that at 1wk too but noticed the most shrinkage in week two.
I'm 3weeks pp now and am back to how I looked before, not that it was flat lol.
