FINALLY expecting PINK again! Tatum Carlee EDD 06/08.

You don't have to ask, yes we know what causes it, and since you're asking and dont, google might be a nice place to start.

Yes, very much! My flat, sexy abs were one of my favorite body parts on me. It's never been the same since having kids. My little tummy rolls bother me a lot.

I never had a flat, sexy belly, but even I'm flabbier than I've ever been. I haven't exercised my abs at all because of the C/S, but I'm hoping when I do start exercising, I can tone them up and get them flat(-ish?).

I have jelly belly but I try to embrace it. It's wiggly and soft and my clothes dont fit. On the other hand it looks lived in and that fact makes me proud. It's not going to stay wiggly forever, the skin will firm up but in the meantime i try to keep a positive attitude.

FTR my waist is now bigger than my pre preg hips were and the hips have at least extra 6".

Yup it sure does. The skin is an amazing organ. It is a slow process though. I remember playing with my extra skin after my older daughter's birth and marvel at it so I definatly was flabby then. A year later it was gone, I cant tell you exacly when it firmed up but it definatly did. I was back in my smallest jeans eventually. I didnt think I'd ever get into those again since they are a very small size (something labelled xxs).

I think my waist and hips had something like an extra inch on them once I was back at my normal weight. I think that may just as well have been that my bones moved a bit. A lot of stuff was pushed into my rib cage (as evidenced by my continuously having to go up a band size without gaining any visible flab) so wouldnt be surprised if that "grew" a bit too permanently.

My stomach used to be my favorite part of my body, not so much anymore. My belly got huge and the stretchmarks appeared about 4-5 weeks before I had her. Right now my belly is very flabby with very noticable stretchmarks. I haven't started working out yet but plan to within the next week or so. I'm hoping that I'll start to see some improvement soon.

I think you've also had biiit more babies than I have. My skin was fine with 1, possibly 2 pregnancies.
