Babies: 0 - 3 Months

When does...

the my-belly-feels-like-a-bowl-full-of-jelly stage start going away?

DS was in the NICU and I was so swollen for 4 weeks after his birth and then he screamed day and night and we ended up in the hospital many times that I have no recollection of anything like this.

I'm down below my prepregnancy weight.  So now, when does your belly start tightening up again?

FYI: I didn't change my ticker, DS is 2 weeks old today. 

To my boys:  I will love you for you Not for what you have done or what you will become I will love you for you I will give you the love The love that you never knew

Re: When does...

  • DD is almost 3 months and I still have this and I've lost 5 lbs below pre-pregnancy weight.  I also had a c-section so I'm not sure if that makes a difference.  I've heard that around 6 months it gets better...

    After almost 2 years, a bleak multiple-factor infertility diagnosis, a miracle surprise BFP while waiting to start treatment, SUA and resolved IUGR, the best thing that ever happened to us is finally here!

    I've already lost about 30 lbs and I still have the nasty loose skin. I really hope that it tightens back up some. I'm okay with the stretch marks, but I want to look normal in clothes again. Right now I just look strange.

  • I had a vag birth and at about a month post-baby I've noticed a big difference already. Still not back to normal, but I don't have that weird hanging-over belly thing that I had at first.
