post c-section pot bellies?

I have another tummy question, but this is a little different, so i wanted to start a new thread.

Any of you women who have had c-sections - was it very hard for you to get your stomach in shape after giving birth?

This is my 4th baby, but only my first c-section. I have been working out for just over a month and have seen nice improvements everywhere but my belly. I have never had such a disproportionate amount of weight on my belly before! Even after the other births, when I got in shape, all my weight came off evenly. And I know I can't spot-reduce, but I'm wondering if the c-section is what's causing the big difference this time.

Anyone know?

didn't have a c-section but still having a rough time. I was fine after my first 2, having trouble with my third. I'm taking my time, hoping it will get better.

i had an emergency-C

after 30 hours of labor so my scar is quite long - hip bone to hip bone. i am sorry to report that i have a "flap" of skin over the scar that will most likely never go away w/o surgery. i have been doing pilates for about a year and have noticed a definite tightening of the middle-front abs but the sides are still very soft. i am sorry that i can't offer a more positive outlook, but i can tell you you are not alone.

post c-section belly fat

I had 2 c-sections 28 years ago; they were vertical, from the belly button down.
Right after I had them it was easier to keep my tummy some what flat. But now that I am 50, it is much harder.

Just keep on exercising; something is better than nothing. Eat right for health, not for weight. You want to keep your muscle mass, not be skin & bones.

Wow, I am the Thurs. Dec. 14, 2006 poster. I can't beleive it's nearly 2 years to the day later and I'm still in the same boat. I guess it's been 3 years since I've been doing Pilates religiously and I have nice upper-ab definition but the lower abs over the scar still flap over. If the OP is still around, I'd love to know where you're at.

I didn't realize this was an old topic from 2006. But, still a big issue for many. I had 2 c-sections. It's been 9 years. My stomach will never be the same. It's not bad. But, I have always been told cardio, cardio, cardio to burn the fat. Drop the pounds and fat, then it's the ab work. My scar is horizontal. And I scar bad anyway for everything. I understand that lower ab and above the scar, I have that too. I have seen people with c-section scars and they are nothing and flat tummies. Some people are lucky.

Many women face this problem after their delivery. Their stomach becomes shapeless and it bulges making her awkward to go into the society. So some effective treatment and medicine should be provided to solve this problem. It is better to do yoga and exercise daily. Bulk Wholesale Android Tablets
