I have 4 children and was wondering the same thing. I think it is different for everyone, but I am hoping that tummy tuck is NOT in my future.

I have the same thing! I don't know if it will ever go away but I am hopeful. I can't afford a tummy tuck!

I have definitely had it since I lost a lot of weight. I hear it snap back in about a year depending on your age, muscle tone and genetics but that sometimes it never does. Not much you can do about it without getting a tummy tuck.

No clue but I really hope mine goes away but I'm not holding my breath. I'm pregnant with #2 so I'll have to wait away to find out but I'm really hoping it goes away afterwards!!!

I definitely have the "pooch". 2 kids over 10 lbs each will do that to you. It drives me crazy and makes me feel hopeless, but when I remember how huge I was when I was pg I feel a little better. I do mourn for the loss of the prepregnancy body I never really appreciated though.

I've done a lot of research about this and the best I hear is lower your body fat, lift weights to tone, and the rest would require a surgeon's touch. I don't think I would bother with the surgery, so I guess I'll just have to cope.

Yeah i think I 'll just cope too, and invest in some pretty control top lingerie. I am sure there are some out there.
