I'm 4 weeks PP. This is my 3rd pregnancy and my 1st c-section. I have sucha belly that it's quite revolting. I can't fit into any of my old pants and that is horribly depressing. I have to be in sweats or stretchy pants, so frumpy! I'm going to the gym 3 times a week and trying really hard to watch what I eat.
With this being my 3rd pregnancy, I doubt I'll ever really lose all this skin. Which is sad.

I had a c-section exactly 7 weeks ago and still have a little bit of the pouch at the bottom of my belly. I have lost 38 of the 43 pounds. I had a c-section so I knew that 9 chances out of 10 I would always have a little bit of somethin' that I can't get rid off. Truth is though, "real women have curves" and I certainly did not go into my pregnancy with a super flat stomach and I didn't come out of it that way. So don't feel bad honey. Pregnancy and birth are a scarifice and we have battle scars (like stretch marks and pouches)...the baby's are worth it!!!

Quoting Mama Rogers:" I still have the pouch and I am 3 months pp, and I breastfeed too! It is slowly getting smaller though ... [snip!] ... the exception, lol. Here's my pouch...I think I was 6 weeks pp then. Still looks pretty much the same now, just smaller. "


I'm only 19 and trust me....my body didn't bounce back. My hips will NEVER fit in a size 5 again because they spread so much. My muffin top is now littered with angry looking stretch marks. My stomach is flabby, covered in stretch marks that discolor my skin so bad it's sickening to see the pink lines against what now looks like yellow skin. My once 6 pack is non existent and flabby and all the extra skin...ug! I can grab a handful of extra skin and still not have it all. (in one spot, not the whole stomach) I can't even fit into a size 8. It's tight around the hips, thighs, and ass and doesn't even button or zip.
