The worst part is mine is poofier on the right by about 1/2 inch than on the left! I call it a pooch instead of a pouch. I didn't realize it was from the c-section. I thought perhaps all women who carried a baby or two had it.

I can relate to this, 3 c-sections in 4 years, and I still have a pooch I am working on getting rid of myself. I am going to look into those kettle balls. I heard you burn more calories with them too, not sure how true that is but Jillian micheals has a kettle ball workout I want to try.

My daughter just had a baby and was complaining to me about it too.... she always had the smallest waist... my c-section was vertical so I didn't have a pouch. However the binki scare is much nicer. So be glad you don't have a scare that is vertical. :(

C-Section pouch! I'm in the club too ladies...it sucks. But I can tell you one thing, the more weight I lose and the more I strength train, the smaller the thing is getting. So, I'll keep at it for now. And pray for a good surgeon if needed later on!

Hungry to win!

I can do all things through Christ who makes me strong!

There is a Sparks Team called C-section mommies. I have only read one link to that group, but it presented working out with Kettlebells as the best means for toning the belly. You may want to take a look into the Teams site.

Has anyone ever come across a blog that followed the steps of someone's progress to getting rid of this darn thing? I've been searching the net here and there in hopes of coming across one but I've never seen it. I'd love to see someone's story and be able to follow their progress through photos and diet/exercise tips that's worked for them. I'm real big on real people, real photos and real stories. I know everyone has heard from someone or read somewhere on amazing results that one has acheived but I need more substance! It would be great motivation for me and over the last few months my motivation has completely gone down the drain.

I had a c-section 17 months ago . I can understand and relate to the c- section pouch t.Even though this was my first pregnancy and c-section i have a little pouch its slowly going away. i was never overweight before pregnancy and i was always working out and i had very good stomach muscles from doing a lot of ab work outs. I understand about the numb feeling also i still waiting for that to disappear its not as bad as the beginning now.Since its my first c- section itll be a little easier for me to lose that pouch by toning my stomach area especially the lower stomach.
The only advice i have for those that suffer from this pouch like me is to focus on your diet and exercise and a lot of ab toning in that area. for those who had multiple c- sections you can try toning that area a lot also and if that does not work to your liking than talk to your doctor about what you can do about it. I am trying to get my stomach back to the way it used to be before i had my baby i know i got a long way to go cause i gained a lot of weight too during my pregnancy i used to be 130 now i am 165.By the way you can get rid of the pouch without surgery. I have seen it done and read about it so many times.Proper diet exercise and hard work on those abs. Have patience itll get there

Yes, I have it too. I've had 2 c-sections. I'm 23 lbs over what I was when I got pregnant the first time, 16 years ago. Wow, that was a long time! I did NOT have a stomach like that then. I also have a vertical incision that pulls in the middle, it's awful. My plan is to get a tummy tuck once I lose more weight.

I just had my 2nd c-section last week and find myself with the same pouch I had after delivering my twins two years ago. Thankfully, I found that once I started nearing my goal weight after the 1st c-section, my flap began to go away. It was just the very last place on me to lose the fat. Don't lose hope. Keep moving forward and you may find yourself trimming up in that area. Hang in there!

Yes I do!!! While I am thankful to have been blessed at age 42 with a healthy baby girl (after being told I couldn't have kids!) I am embarrassed of my stomach. To think I was called twiggy when I was younger! Never weighed over 110 lbs (was actually underweight pre pregnancy) and now I can't get rid of these folds/pouch. I look like Buddha. I am too scared and not rich enough for surgery sigh...

I do! I so have a pouch and the numbness after having two c-section.. I have never been thin or have a flat tummy or anything but I didn't have this pouch before the c-sections! I'd love to get rid of it. I don't mind the scar but the pouch thats another story.

I have never had a C-section, but I'm sure my tummy doesn't look much better. I'm so happy to be losing weight..but the more I lose the more flabby my tummy looks. I definitely look like I had two kids! I agree with some other posters, surgery might be the only way to truly make it look better. I have thought about when I am done having kids, getting to a healthy weight and saving up for some kind of surgery to make my tummy look better. Until then, I wear my battle scars proudly (well most the time).

Is it wrong to fight time, to turn it back or push it forward? Time was never mine.

I had to have two C sections but my incision didn't go horizontal. They had to do mine vertically. (I have a fibroid tumor on my uterus, which was the reason for the c-section. They were afraid of cutting it and having me bleed out on the table. LOL) So I don't have a neat little pouch. I have a butt belly. LMAO!!! Yeah, it's crappy but.... what can ya do?!

After 1 c-sec and 1 VBAC I have what I lovingly refer to as my shelf! I definitely have the pouch BUT so does my 'skinny her whole life' size 6 friend. I think it's more about if you have good skin genes. Some people just bounce back better than others.

I had my C-Sec almost 7 years ago and the area around my incision is still numb and I don't think that will ever change.

No c-section, so I wonder if my pooch is the same. I hate how it flaps when I go up or down stairs in a hurry. Someday, I think I will treat myself to a tummy tuck!

I had two c-sections right at 18 months apart, and my youngest will be a year old next week - I totally have the pouch. And the numbness. I'm at my highest ever non-pregnant weight -higher even than at my 6-week check-up after my son was born. I'm hoping it will get better when I lose the weight - but looking here, maybe not emoticon

Been there, still there. The numb feeling comes and goes for me. 2 C-sections followed by 2 VBACs and it's still there, no matter what my weight. I hadn't thought about surgery to make it go away. Silly me!

Consistency is key. But moderation is up there.

I consulted with a doctor and was told only surgery will get rid of it. If I win the lottery, I may consider that after all the other bills are paid.

Does the pouch ever go away???? I've had 4 c-sections and all my girls are grown now (2 have their own children) and my puch is still here!! After my last one I had an issue that cause me to need medications...I went from 123-175 in a few blinks....It's been a battle since and there just doesn't seem to be a remedy....I have the numbness especially on the right side of the incision line (and other areas of the right side of my body) as well as my uterus and stomach lining have healed together due to the multiple surgeries....

I had an emergency c-section too, 6yrs. ago. I still have the pooch/pouch/flap whatever you want to call it and it is still numb. I am at my heaviest now without being pregnant and I look forward to it getting smaller. Even when I was back down to under 130lbs.(180lbs now) I still had a pooch and numbness at the incision line. I don't think it will ever go away entirely, I just consider it a battle scar from childbirth...lol. -Andrea

I've had 2 c-sections and yes I have the pouch. Maybe worse than some b/c I am so obese. Right now I just want to get to a healthy weight and be comfortable in my own skin. From what I heard, exercise can help some and the fitter you were pre preggo the better (no luck there) BUT surgery is the only complete option. To be honest though...we women stress out too much over this. Be thankful to be healthy. Of course having loads of excess skin is another story and I believe surgery is a viable optio in this case!

I also have it after having three c-sections. I'm not sure what the answer is but I can sympathize! I too, also have discovered that regardless of weight loss, it doesn't seem to change the pouch! I can ask my doctor when I finally get in to see him if he has a suggestion. My husband and I just discovered we are pregnant again so I will be seeing the doctor soon!

I have had 2 c-sections with my youngest being 2 1/2yrs old. I have to pouch, the more weight I lose the worse my pouch looks. But I have been told that you have to lose the fat and the skin should tighten... not sure how it is supposed to tighten. I also have been told it will take a long time to get to that point. I am okay with it as long as no one sees it!!

I have it. I am also still numb all around it. Honestly, it doesn't bother me all that much. The idea of someone else ever seeing it (i.e in a bikini) is so far off to me now, that I'm not worried. Maybe I'll address it when I'm at my goal and done having babies.

I have the pouch, tooemoticon, not that I'd had a flat belly even before the pregnancy (though I did have a six pack when I was 19 for a brief time). I have that weird lack of feeling for about an inch around the incision, too. I've been planking as part of our boot camp workout at work, though, and it's helped my belly a little. Now instead of hanging over the line, my belly is smaller and has firmed up to protrude forward, which is a bit of an improvement. But it is weird that the protrusion starts EXACTLY at the incision line. I keep hoping it'll go away when I hit my target weight. I'm really averse to getting surgery unless it's a matter of survival.

To firm up the skin, try cocoa butter. I slathered it on my whole pregnancy (old wives remedy from my mom) and it seemed to help my skin stay elastic. Also, it prevented me from getting any stretch marks.

Can an expert tell us how to lose the pouch naturally? I honestly am afraid to lose weight and have this pouch never go away. My PCP doc told me that surgery is the only answer. I have to refuse to believe this is the way it has to be. I think that we need practical advice. Spot training, name brand lotions that actually work, etc.

Experts, please help us poor mothers that want to look sexy naked again.

Interesting topic...I have had 4 vaginal births and the 5th and final was a c-section. Prior to having children my stomach actual caved in a bit--a little concave. Now, not only do I have a pouch, but I still have no feeling at all below the pouch. My doctor said that this would last about a year, but after four years, the nerve endings are still dead. I was told that there is hope for the pouch if when you hold you stomach in, the pouch still goes in a bit when you suck it in. I still continue to hope and do cardio, abs, and core exercises.

GOAL: To be at my goal weight by the end of September.
Mini goal: -5 by the end of May
Reward: A new Zumba shirt!!!!

Well, I'm not looking forward to the skin thing once I get to my goal weight, having weighed 300 lbs at the height of my pregnancies. I had one C-section and a VBAC.

Skin can get wrecked, I waited until I was finished lossing weight and having my family.. Both these aspects are super important to avoid sagging efter the operation..

recovery time was 3 month off the gym- I had to keep my weight by walking and eating correctly..

The doctors do tummy tucks at different sizes.. Many women only need a mini tuck.. I have had the large type that requires 2 operations..

Hi I'm Krissy. And I know exactly what that darn c-section pouch is ALL about. So far I have had 3 c-sections and I'm about to have a 4th this coming November. My first c-section was also and emergency c-sections and I've had to have repeats ever since.

I didn't start my weightloss journey until my 3rd baby was about 14 months old ( I was done having kids at that point...this 4th baby is a TOTAL surprise) I lost over 70lbs.

Well after I lost all that weight, I went to see a cosmetic surgeon about getting a tummy tuck. Because even tho I had lost 70lbs and I weighed 148lbs I had this HUGE pooch/flap thing. He told me that I am a perfect canidate to have it done, he said my pooch was an excessive pooch and that it's because I was obese thru most of my pregnancies and when I lost all the weight, I just had tons of extra skin. He said that no matter what I couldn't loss that on my own, because of course it was all skin and no fat.

But now I have to wait yet again to have the tummy tuck done because i'm having another baby... oh boy. So i'm not sure what your background in weightloss is...but for some women they are able to tone up that saggy little pouch. I wish it was that simple for me..hehe

So don't give up!!!

Not only do I have the pooch but, I have a large one.... I had a 12 lb baby via cesarian. I'm afraid there's no hope for me getting rid of this naturally.

Well, I did have a tight and sexy tummy before having children. My first was by c-section, but the second was VBAC. I do have that pooch that seems to hang over the incision. My tummy has slimmed down, but not because of any exercises I have done. From what I understand, your body determines where it takes the fat from. You might be able to tone the muscle underneath, but the fat has to be gone before you can tell! I hope that when I hit my goal weight, my tummy will be flatter. But it is a wait-and-see!

I didn't have a c-sec, but after two children, I absolutely have a pouch. :( All I can think of are lotions for tightening skin.
