    @JurisPrudence:  What’s a nonFTmom?

    Anyway, it depends on the person. Mine has never gone away completely. I think this is a combination of how much I was stretched (last baby was a 9 lb baby in a 5’4 / normally-120 lb body) and the fact I had C-sections. Other women get a flat stomach in a few months. I think work out and eat healthy as best you can, and not compare yourself to others.

    I used a belly wrap. I have told all my pregnant friends to buy one and basically “live in it” for a few months. I bought one called a belly bandit but it wasn’t the most comfortable (not that its supposed to be.) I also bought it a size too small because i was delusional and thought i would be a size “small” right after I gave birth. I eventually bought a cheapy wrap from babies r us and wore it all the time even to sleep! I still have a lil muffin top but the front of my stomach went back to being flat at around 3 months.

    I think it really helped and I started using in 2 weeks pp. I did some research before I bought it  becuase I didnt want to waste my money and found that many cultures around the world wrap there bellies after childbirth.

    I’m 10 weeks PP and still have a belly.  I start next week doing a core class for PP moms.  I too have a belly band but what stinks about it is that I don’t have many shirts I can wear it under that it doesn’t show.  And it isn’t all that comfy.

    I’ve been wondering this, too!  I’m five weeks PP and my belly has shrunk tremendously..but I still have a ring of fat.  I’m sure that will go away in time…but I feel like I’m just wider.  My rib cage, my hips…they all seem wider.  I’m only 8 lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight, but there is no way my pre-pregnancy pants are even close to fitting.  I don’t know if they’ll ever fit again!


    Do the rib cage and hips go back to pre-pregnancy size???  I’m thinking I may need to buy all new pants!!

    After baby #1 it went away pretty quickly.  I would have picked 0-2 months.  Baby #2 came 18 months later.  He’s 6.5 months old.  Picking 6+ this time.  I was wondering this, too.  Does it ever go away?  I was back to pre-pregnancy weight quickly but still don’t fit into many of my pants.  I think the “bone expansion” does go back to normal (or did for me) but the jiggly belly…so sad.
