BTDT Moms...

Please tell me that this saggy, silly putty, deflated balloon belly goes away. lol It's so weird! I mean, when I look at how far it stretched, I get it, but it's annoying. :)

    Even when I lost all the weight and my muscles were flat, the extra skin is still there and gross.

    Yes it goes away. I lost mine roughly 9 months PP. It took a lot of hard work and mixing up my workout routine but it eventually became flat without the extra skin flap.

    Mine went away.. It took some time but it eventually went back to pre preg. Size. It seems to be taking a little longer this time after DD2 but I have been bad and not exercising :(

    Not true as a blanket statement. Mine went back to normal after my first, and I'm on my way back, again, after this one.

    Thanks ladies, good to know. I know that things will tighten up and get smaller with diet and exercise but the skin always freaks me out and I can't imagine it shrinking back.

    Since we are on the belly topic does anyone still have the line that goes down your stomach? Mine hasn't fully faded yet, am I alone?

    Yep same here. I was about 8 months pp when I felt like I looked like myself again... But then I got pregnant with DS2 lol

    That's what I'm afraid will happen with me. lol @miraclemarie, yes it's still there.

    Still have mine too it's called linea nigra. With DD1 it took a good 6 months for it to fade. With this preg it wasn't as bad maybe bc my stomach had already been stretched? It's still there but very light

    I can't say this for everyone but my body went back to normal size including my hips. I guess it also depends on your age and genetics .

    It took almost 6 months for my hips to shrink after DS1. Even now, after DS2, my pre-pregnancy pants still fit really uncomfortable, even though I wear the same size pant size as before. I chalk it up to them being 3-5 years old.

    I still have my linea nigra as well. And the extra skin.

    My body is different than pre preg, but aside from the weight I still need to lose, not worse.

    Just like most things, it's different for everyone. I'm 3 months PP and fit into most of my old jeans/pre-preg clothes. I still have extra tummy, butt, and thighs, but they're shrinking daily. 

    (I can't comment on weight because I stopped looking at the scale at 25 weeks, and haven't looked at it since). 
    I wish I had extra butt. My butt is absolutely flat now. Straight as a board from my shoulders to my thighs. WTH.

    I had a c sec and I don't get why my pants don't fit that nice, I should weight wise I am less than before but my jeans don't fit work a crap! :( ugh and the extra skin is nasty when I run I can feel it wiggling around, we go on a tropical holiday in April and I am determined to wear a bikini and look good in it too!

    Eta I figure my hips shouldn't be wide I didn't even go into labor but I guess thanks to the hormones they are still wider. I am trying to decide if I should just break down and buy new jeans or if they are gonna shrink up.

    Took forever for my hips to go back to normal! But I was in the best shape of my life after DS1 and was wearing a bikini on the beach when he was 11 months old. Hoping to get back there sooner this time though!

    You'll get there!
