How do you feel about your PP belly?

I am 12 days PP and although the skin is still soft, it is not stretched and looks rather flat. So I am happy about that

I added 2 pictures of my PP belly. I am now 13 days PP and am happy about the result so far. I can't wait to exersize a bit though. But I will wait doing so until 6 weeks PP.
Breastfeeding really makes a difference for me!! I fit most of my normal clothes already.

I'm 10 days PP and although I'm not thrilled with my belly, it isn't as bad as I'd expected. I have a little bit of loose skin and some stretch marks, but they already seem to be fading a little.

I'm 7 days pp and I have a bit of a flap but it's not as bad as I thought it would be. Lost 12 lbs already, about 30 more to go, but I shrink a little every day.

IM back to my prepregnancy weight but I don't look it at all. I avoid mirrors as much as I can. These stretch marks are scary

I am 20 lbs below my pre-pregnancy weight because I lost so much before I started gaining during my pregnancy. At the end of my pregnancy, I had just reached my pre-pregnancy weight. BUT I can still only wear my prepregnancy jeans because my stomach skin is so saggy. Yuck.

It's not as bad as I thought it would be. The first couple of days it was so squishy and saggy and I felt gross. I'm 17 days pp and I've lost about 25 lbs, just 9 more and I will be at pre preg weight. The skin is a lot tighter now *almost* feels like normal and the stretch marks look a little lighter.
