    hello ladies wonder if anyone could shed some light, i know that ur belly doesnt instantly go down after birth and especially after a c section, but i wondered how long it tends to take? i cant really do any exercise or take the boys out in their pram til at least term, with being a few weeks prem and i know that will help but is there anything else i can do or try?
    Dont get me wrong they are worth every bit of it, but still look 3-4 months pregnant atm. Would ,like to regain! i have also still got dark lin and outtie belly button! hope ur all well ladies xxx

    I really can't remember how long my tummy took to look like a normal tummy agaiin. It goes down so gradual you don't really notice it happening, and I guess the rate is different for everyone too.

    The line on my belly was the same, I never noticed that it had gone lol That was defo there for a good few months though I think.

    My belly button never popped out thank god, I hate belly buttons and I was so worried that would happen, but luckily it stayed a proper inny!

    Once you get out and about with the buggy your body starts changing so quickly and you start to feel so much better too.

    I honestly was so niave, I thought my body would ping back into shape within a week or two :wall2: But once you can start putting the work in, it does change quick xxx

    Don't worry take your time, your body will adjust , it did take 9 mths to get bigger for baby, so it can't go over night. X
