yeah ive had two c sections and my stomach went flat after it does take a little longer to go down i admit and you might have a little squidgy bit just above your scar but nothing noticable all in all it will go flat but if you put on any weight in future your stomach is likely to be the first place your notice it lol but a few sit ups in the mornings will keep that away x

When my mom had her c-sections with my brother and I, they managed not to stitch together her ab muscles properly. That was back in the late 80s though. That's the only way I could see how you wouldn't be able to get a flat stomach again. She wasn't able to do a sit-up until she had them repaired last year.

Aw thanks ladies! It's nice to hear some positive comments because everything I've read has been negative. A little more patience then and fingers crossed. Thx...

Squats while tucking in your abs, imagine your belly button touching your spine. And cardio, I took my son jogging or fast walking in his jogging stroller ads the extra push! I was in amazing shape by 1 year PP

my stomach went flat after my c section 15 years ago. Hopeing the sames gunna happen this time too, but I'm thinking it might be a bit harder, not as young as I used to be
