After i have my baby, i was wondering if my stomach will stay big or will it shrink back down to the size it was before i got pregnant? And after i have my baby, i was wondering if wearing a gertle will make my stomach muscles tight?

Don't worry about your stomach. You will be so busy with your precious baby it won't matter.

It all depends. Some go back to normal, close to normal or some stay flabby and need help. Not sure about the girdle though.

Mine went back to normal quickly after the first one. The second wasnt quite so quick, but I gained 40 lbs. with her. It just depends on your body. Dont worry about it now.

You will have a flabby belly for a few weeks after giving birth.  Your stomach was just stretched to the limits, and it won't just spring back to regular quickly.  My Dr w my first told me that it takes 9 months for your body to get get large enough to accomidate a baby, and it'll take about 9 months for your body to get back to normal.  W my 3rd I gained a whopping 14 lbs during the pregnancy, and I still had a belly to deal w.  W all of my kids I did use a girdle, and my understanding is that its recommended after having a baby.  It tells your body where everything should go again...your organs move, skin and muscles stretch, and a girdle will help shape them to where they were before your pregnancy.  NTM, it will help you feel a little better about yourself when you wear one underneath your clothes.  Congrats!

Mine went back to normal but was loose and there was a crease at the bottom. That crease will collect a little fat and never go away unless you are a gym rat. I can hide mine though.
