    For me, it's not the abs that are the problem - it's the loose skin!!!

    Have any of you ladies tried the wrap/massage/corset? I'm due in May and have to go to my brother's wedding in July. While I'm not looking to regain my old shape completely in such a short time, I would really like to be able to wear one of my old dresses. Any ideas?

    pilates helps strengthen the core and pelvic floor exercises help!

    Agreed it's the loose skin, not just the fat deposit reside in the tummy. Exercise might not work for everyone....
    Elasticity of the skin varies from person to person and age of pregancy is a big factor to determine one can return back to the good old shape before delivery.

    i am planning for a tummy tuck, let you ladies know after my consultation.

    can one have a tummy tuck and then give birth again? does it affect the stretching of the skin again?

    yes. if you plan to have more kids, DON'T waste money to have a tummy tuck, the result will not last long.

    I think the answer may be in how big you get in preganancy. Mine popped back in to shape pretty easily but then my babies were both under 8lbs and I am quite tall so I never grew very big in the first place. I know my friends who gained a lot of weight in pregnancy definitely had more trouble. Saying that though even though my stomach is pretty flat, the minute I eat a very large or very salty meal it bloats back out and I look like I'm about 3 months pregnant agin! I guess the stomach never really forgets.
