Belly more "floppy"?
Mon, 08-08-2011 - 7:30am

I'm wondering if it's just me and my age (10 years older than my first pregnancy) or if it's csection related...

My belly still feels floppy. I could have sworn it was more 'tight' by this point (I'm 7wks3d pp) with my first (which wasn't a section). I haven't done anything differently and although I'm a few pounds heavier than I was it's not that big of a difference to cause this blah feeling.

With my BP still high (well, I'm on BP meds now since it was still high at my final PP visit - so I am being treated for pregnancy induced hypertension) I haven't wanted to push it and go to the gym just yet.

Or, this could be 2nd pregnancy related and my stomach just doesn't want to bounce back. ;)

That's a tough question cause it requires me remembering how I really did after my others. LOL

I still feel like I have a lot of extra skin in my belly area, and I still muffin top over my pants. ICK!! But, I know with my others it took a while to get really back to pre-preg size too. With my first it was about 6 mos, but with the next 2 it was after a year. I'm definitely not there yet still. Weight-wise, I'm about where I started, but body and clothes-wise, I'm not!

I attribute mine more to age, and number of pregnancies though. But, I don't know the real truth cause I can't really remember well enough for a direct comparison.

It's probably a little from column A and a little from column B.

Thanks, girls!

I'm down 10 pounds below my pre-preg, but my pants are *just* fitting. I was afraid of it being a little of both, lol. Guess I'll have to hit the toning machines at the gym soon! ;)
