I know lots of people are curious about pp bellies (I was when still pregnant with my first) so here's one for the lurkers from other ddcs

I started the pregnancy 90 pounds, ended the pregnancy 135 pounds and I was 115 pounds at 10 days pp.

last belly picture at 39w4d



My jiggly belly at 3 weeks post partum.
I had a c-section so I have a "shelf"









7 weeks post partum.



it's coming down nicely on it's own...Hopefully I will get the okay to start exercising at my check up tomorrow.

You do look great! What do you mean by "shelf"? I'm wondering if I have one.

first off thanks

I added pictures that are in better lighting.

my skin kind of hangs weird below my belly.



here is something i googled:

A scar shelf is when the skin sits over the c-section scar and takes on a small overhang.
Because of the location and nature of scarring, there's very little you can do about this phenomenon short of a tummy tuck. Unfortunately, the best answer is introduce a diet low in fat and post c-section exercise ! Walking and swimming are also very effective on this area. The object is to tone your muscles. There are women who have been determined to get rid of this fatty shelf area and have done it. You just have to get the determination and stick with it.


IMO I am proof it can happen to smaller and larger women alike. You always hear people say "I'm overweight so I have a flap" well like I said I'm proof it isnt because the woman is overweight.

Nicole it's my reward for surviving last time. I was about twice this size when Marissa was 10 months old.

Twice your size is still smaller than me, lol. You've just been blessed with the skinny gene and I accept the fact that not all of us can be that lucky.
