It was about 7 months before my belly was down to a more regular size. I was at my normal weight 5 months postpartum. I still have a little extra softness in the belly region. But I think it is just a little extra skin. I do not have a flap or anything. As far as I have heard, it can take up to 2 years to fully recover from birth and for your body to get back to as normal as it is going to be.

Give it time. I still notice my body changing as the months go by, and I'm a year postpartum. I did birth vaginally too, so my recovery in the belly region would probably be a little faster than yours. 4 months is not enough time to know what your body is going to be like. At 4 months postpartum, I couldn't fit my normal "fat clothes" on right. My belly was too big. You grew a human. Your tummy needs time to ungrow.
