Hi kelly I understand how you feel. I was very fit and toned before DC1 but even after losing my weight and exercising again, in certain positions, I still have a paunch in my lower stomach and I don't think it will go (especially now I'm expecting my 2nd).

Do you exercise at all? I know some yoga moves that can help lift the lower stomach and might help. Are you back to your pre pregnancy weight?
