Sorry, my daughter is 13 months and i still am 20 lbs above my pre preg weight! I gained alot of weight during my pregnancy though, around 60 lbs. I have TONS of stretch marks and i definitely have a very pronounced pooch. Time has faded my strecth marks mostly but the deep ones are and always will be clearly visible.
Oh and i also had a belly piercing that i didnt take out soon enough and it left a disgusting scar.
take belly piercings OUT!
The easiest way to handle this is top prevent any more in future pregnancies but INVESTING in amazing skin cream and eating healthy and exercising.

i have that belly aswell im covered in stretch marks i got them everywhere :( i also had a belly peircing and when i was pregnant my daughter used to kick it so it stretched i took it out and its scarred i think the only option for me is surgery :(. i use the palmers and bio oil aswell but mine dont seem to be shifting, my stomach looks better then what it did when i had my baby but i still dont like it.

When I get enough money (or when my mom and dad get enough money) I'm going to get a tummy tuck. I've gotta lose weight first, though, haha. My stretch marks fade on their own for the most part, though they will never go away totally.

I know how ya feel i went from an awesome model weight of 135-140 (for my height that is) and went all the way to 217lbs! and am still trying to get rid of it all and my son is 15 mths i feel so fat because i couldve been a model before pregnancy and now i cant wear any of my old clothes. idk if anyone else went through the same large gain but if you did and have lost it id LOVE some tips i walk and run around with my son but have asthma so its hard to do too much. and stretch marks my mom gave me some palmers and it seems to work and when i was pregnant i used baby oil gel to help but nothing helps a lot because my marks are so deep.

Stretch marks will fade on their own, your skin was stretched, no product can make it go back.... as far as that little flab of skin, the "pouch", I think that's also good to go. I'm now back to my PRIME weight before I got pregnant... 129lbs. But when I turn sideways in the mirror, that little flab is still there...

Do they ever go away. I am now 30 pounds lighter after two kids than before being pregnant. 146-115...lets just say things are a bit flabbier than before. Did any one elses boobs shrink??? I swear they are like pancakes now. How do you go from a G cup to a B??? Man all I want is to be able to wear an awesome looking bathingsuit and enjoy being 22. SOrry that was a bit of a rant. If you find something that works let me know.
