Hows yours looking?

My stomach is flat again, but the skin is still a little loose. My belly button is still ugly too! And the stupid linea nigra is dark as ever!

Mine is definitely a little looser and full of lots of stretch marks that looks like tiger stripes

My tummy got stretched out WAY larger this time (even though this wasn't my biggest baby). I still have a little bit of fat to loose, but I already have skin sagging. I've had it sag just a little in the middle before and it eventually goes away. But this time I think it's so bad, it won't go back. It's sagging all the way around to my hips. I have to wear those control top girdle underwear to hold my skin firm so that I can wear jeans. Glorious.

After three kid's I knew I'd have a pooch but I did manage to not get a single stretch mark so even though it's saggy and like an accordion at least it's smooth so I have something to cheer about.

3rd baby, biggest baby at over 9 lbs...I have a lot of weight to lose still too. Hardly any stretch marks but there is some extra skin. After my other pregnancies it has taken awhile for it to go back, at least 4 or 5 months so I'm hoping I can still wear a bikini next summer but it's cool it I can't.

I'd say a little looser then it was maybe, but essentially back to normal. No stretch marks to speak of but, even though I didn't notice it during my pregnancy, I do have the linea nigra. I'm 6 weeks PP.

Mine feels funny more than anything...very loose and flabby. It looks pretty normal. I did get some stretch marks towards the end but they are fading.

Sounds like my belly pretty much looks like yours. I can't wait to get some muscle tone back and tighten the skin and get my belly button looking like normal.

Yep, you pretty much defined my stomach. I'd say mine looks kinda like a deflated balloon. I actually did get stretch marks with this pregnancy, but I didn't notice until after I gave birth.

Mine looks back to normal, but soft and pillowy to the touch. I started ab work today to tone it back up.

Ugh, I can't bear to look at it. I still look like I'm 15 weeks pregnant, but with loose extra skin and a bunch of angry red stretch marks from hip to hip that sag. I can't wait for the skin to tighten up and be cleared for exercise to get rid of the pudge. It pooches over my c-section scar, and I've been told that I will always have that pooch no matter what I do.

Smaller but not flat, I look kinda bloated lately. Still have my linea negra and I'm also soft feeling in the belly.

It took a while with DD for things to look normal. I did escape stretch marks with her but this time I'm not so lucky.

My stomach went flat about 6 days PP. However, I do have loose skin towards the bikini line. It's not as bad as I thought it would be considering how huge my belly got. I don't have the linea nigra.

Mines actually better than I had expected, although I still have some weight to lose. Its a little saggy, but I only got a couple of new stretch marks this time. All in all, its not too bad for being 5 days pp.
