It looks bloated in the pic, if it is staying bloated, I would take a trip to GP.

@Seaweed42 I really don't think it is bloating, I can grab it and it all just feels fat x

Have you checked yourself for diastasis recti? You lie on your back on the floor knees bent and place your fingers down the area that aligns with your belly button (the area between the muscles). Raise your head and shoulder in a mini crunch and being your chin to your chest if the gap between the muscles is greater than 2cm yiu have diastasis recti
