Loose skin

After this heat wave I am very tearful about the loose skin on my stomach, I am 10 months postpartum. I still have about 6 lbs to lose before getting to my pre baby weight. But the skin is terrible it’s almost like cellulite all over my stomach, with a small flap of skin that falls over my knickers, the stretch marks I can live with, but is there anything I can do (apart from surgery)
Thanks

It does get better (a bit) as time goes by but I've found it never really went away.

It's the sort of thing you forget about after a couple of years, just after I had my first baby I was annoyed by it but she's 9 now and I don't even think about it now

Thanks smile can you remember how long (I also have a 9 year old) I don’t know if my stomach is worse than with him, how much it improved, and if I need to just really focus on the weight loss. Hoping it maybe the extra weight. I am short so half a stone looks a lot

I think it was about 18 months for me.

It depends on your age. Give it time.

You could strengthen your abs . It will make you stronger and help your posture.

Thanks everyone smile think I was also having a hormonal wobble, you always hear people say 9months in 9 months off, I am sat here 10 months after looking like a saggy wobbly jelly. Stepping away from social media and having baby cuddles. Which is much better anyway. Will also work on strengthening the Abs
