My belly is still hard.

My son just turned 6 months old. I had been told I would have a chance of still looking pregnant for a while after birth but I didn't think it would be like this. I have shown my belly to a couple friends who didn't think it was normal. Below my belly button is saggy and squishy but above my belly button it is still hard and from time to time I have aches in my stomach. I mention it to my doc and all he said was "yeah that isn't normal" but didn't do ANYTHING about it..didn't even look at it! I know it will take a while to get my old body back but is this normal? I can't afford to go to the doctor as I'm still trying to pay for my LEEP procedure I had to have done. Pre-pregnancy I weighed 115 and at full term was 171. Even 6 months after having my son I still weigh 158.

You never go back to your pre-pregnancy body unless you have money to get a personal trainer like Beyonce. I was 158 at my pre-pregnancy size, I was a total of 200 at full term, now I'm 164. Breastfeeding helped me a lot to shed weight.
