It took 9 months to make the belly, it'll take probably just as long. I still look preggo at 5 months pp.

Its normal. Hell, my kids almost a year old and people still ask if I'm pregnant.

It's very normal...your uterus is still in the process of shrinking back to its original size, and your skin is still going to be stretched out from being pregnant. It will take a good 6 weeks or so for things to get back to normal.

I looked just like that when I left the hospital. Almost 3 years later and no one can tell I've ever had a child. Give it time, things will tighten up eventually.

Losing baby weight varies from person to person. These things tend to take their own time though & everyone is different. I have 1 friend who was back down to her pre preg weight within a month, another who got back to it in 2 & 1/2 months & 1 who lost about half the weight in 2 1/2 months & still working on losing the other half. So don't beat yourself up, you'll get there it just takes time.

Did you have a c section? Most of my friends had one and they looked preggo still for months. I had two natural births and after 3 months I was back to normal completely.

Drink red raspberry leaf tea, it will make your uterus contact & therefor help shrink your belly.
