    does your stomach go down in size a bit just after giving birth or does it take time? also are all post baby tums flabby?

    Mine was pretty flat after about a week, breast feeding helps it contract loads! Still got a little bulge as my abs have stayed separated so I'm seeing the physio to help with that then I can get back to the gym to get the definition back. Think it varies person to person and whether you have a c section or not. before my son my abs were my best bit so Im keen to get them back to normal, you def can manage it with patience and work as I did after my DD, so try not to worry x

    my friend got the jelly belly effect. I had a section and that was early at 38 and 2 days. where as she went 11 days over with her son. So I think I just got away with my tummy getting too big and stretched to have the jelly belly effect. I did get stretches but not that many. It was still out alittle after my son was 4 months but what with pregnancy number two I'm not that worried about it now for at least till after baby is born x

    It took 2 weeks for uterus to go back, I still looked 30 weeks pregnant for most of that time. But after 2 months it was pretty much back to normal, which is um a little bit "fat" haha. But im back in to size 14 and hope to get into my 12s by 6months.

    BF really does help...

    Mine's very almost flat already. I was horrified when I first saw it all wrinkly and deflated, but it goes back quite quickly. Linea nigra is still around though, looking absolutely hideous.

    I had issues with my incision line. So have only got back to working out in the last couple months. Dieting is my friend :p Wasnt that early though cause I was breastfeeding.
