I have lost 40 pounds since I had my son 6 weeks ago... However, will the skin on my stomach ever ...bounce back? and the stretch marks are
Only 25 more pounds until I reach my pre-pregnantness weight.

All those stupid Thai food cravings.

I gained about 45-50 pounds with my pregnancy and I noticed for the first few months when I really started losing the weight quick I looked like I had a kangaroo pouch. When bubby turned one and I started excersizing more and was closer and closer to pre prego weight my skin did not seem so saggy, I used a jergens lotion that helps firm the skin and it kinda faded my stretch marks a little. I also started tanning twice a week and it has really reduced the appearance. As far as they go it just takes a little time to get rid of them they fade.

My baby just turned 2. When she was born, I had the exact same stomach fears that you mentioned.

My tummy is still far from perfect, but it looks much better. The (tons of) stretch marks have faded, and I'm less jiggly than a year ago. And I look hot in clothes.

Hang in there, and don't be too hard on yourself!!!! Your kiddo is still tiny!

Stretch marks are like scar tissue, eventually they will fade from red to white but they'll never completely go away. I still have stretch marks from when I lost 20 lbs in high school, almost 10 years ago!
