I am now 13 months PP with a fiesty little toddler tearing up the place. I gained 82 lbs in my pregnancy, start weight being 185, d-day weight 268, which is just, insane...
I am 10 lbs below my former pp weight, hovering around 170-ish, about a size 12-14, normal for my shape and body type.
The problem is really my stomach, I got abso-frickin-lutely enormous, and I have a very loose, stretchmarked, and saggy flap/pouch on my lower belly. It has not changed a bit in the last 6 months, although I have continued to lose weight, and have added ab exercize to my routine. Firm muscles, a little fat padding, and skin skin skin. I can stretch it out a good 5 inches from my abdominal wall, it's insane. It reminds me of people who have been very obese and lost weight with excess skin, a mini pannus almost.
Has anyone's skin recovered from this kind of damage? I'm 31 if it helps, and this is my first and perhaps only child.
I am not a big vanity person, and understand that women come in all shapes and sizes, but am honestly considering cosmetic surgery down the road to correct this, it's really bugging me.
