How are you doing? Its been almost 2 weeks since my c-section and my uterus is still not completely down.. ugh. Last time it took about 5 weeks. Im always so jealous of girls whose bellies go down like the day after birth.

This time my belly has gone down very fast! I don't even look like I was ever pregnant. In the past it has taken 9 mo or so to return to looking better. Now though, its just the huge boobs that I have to fight with now.

I had Allison on the 30th, and it took about a week or so for it to go down. Now I just look a tad overweight, 'cause that's what I am lol

Waiting on the approval of my doc to start exercising again. My section scar hasnt been too painful, but definitely slows me down some.

I am also, I had a c-section with my son and I seemed to be much more swollen then after I had my daughter normally, but don't worry, you'll shrink right down after the incision heals, that's what happened to me afterwards. Good luck to you dear!

Always takes about a month, maybe more, for my uterus to go down. And it takes me at least 6 months to get near my pre-preg weight...but I usually gain about 50pounds which is nuts!

I'm 15 days pp and I'm only 5 pounds from prepregnancy weight. But, this is a first because my other 2 kiddos it took forever to get the weight off.

I am 13 days pp and I look chubby now. I don't look like I just had a baby, just that I am overweight. I need to get down another 20 lbs in the next month though. So I hear ya on being jealous.
