    Hiya.sorry Im not much help here but didn't want to just read and leave.
    I can only imagine how you feel as.i dislike my belly too.also have two children but mine has still weight in it.
    The skin dies stretch and i don't think it goes back fully to previous for anyone even those who weren't big.
    Doctors might be able to help, if its not just loose skin that didn't go back to own shape if u know what i mean.
    The only thing i can say its that you got a lovely child out of it and i wouldn't swap my body if i couldn't have my children without it.
    For me its also stretchmarks and even As a size 8 won't have a bikini body.
    Keep your chin up and hopefully someone will have some advise.

    Let us know how you get on at the doctors, i'm sure most of us think of our stomachs as the worst place where the weight sticks, me included!

    No problem we all have something.i better not even start.pregnancy changes us so much and things are irreversible. But at least we got our children to make up for it with their smiles,silly things they say and do plus kisses and cuddles .

    Have you been to docs yet?

    Hi Juicy, sorry to hi-jack your thread!

    Yesterday, my Son & I got caught in a torrential downpour so dived into the local Library for shelter! He immediately got ALL the Rugby books out of the Sports section, stretched out on the floor & started to read them :d'oh: so, i disowned him! & went off to look at the Healthy Foods books in the Health section:)

    There were two books there that caught my eye, "Fab Abs" by Anita Bean & "From Belly Fat to Belly Flat" by Dr C W Randolph.

    The first one has some great tips & a Six Week workout which i am definately going to do, great book! Some of the exercises use a gym ball which i had never thought of getting to exercise with, but reading about them, it makes sense, using your abs to balance with & great for back sufferers too (which includes me)! Off to Argos this morning!!

    The second one is more complex & i will probably just skim through it sometime at the weekend & make some notes.

    If i find anything of interest, i will post it here ..

    Hope all goes ok with the doctor. I read this last week and it may prove helpful for you. They have a little section on the mummy tummy (if that's the type you have, I'm just being presumptious as you mentioned C-Sections!). In which case STOP doing your sit ups - have a look at the article for more info :) I'm the little pooch XD
