Postpartum stomach

Hey guys! So I’m 3 months postpartum and have lost the baby weight a while ago. I had a big baby and a small torso though so I have distasis recti and a very wrinkly stomach which a droopy bellybutton. Has anyone expertised this and did it get better? I would love any work out/ work out routines you did to correct your abs and any product that helped your wrinkles fade. Thanks! Just trying to work on my stomach since it’s not looking so great lol

I've delt with the same issue. I'm 6 months PP and my belly is just now looking "✌" normal i still have loose skin and stretch marks. I personally looked up safe exercises i could do to help it on youtube and that helped me but it depends on how bad it is if your not seeing any results.

Have you tried Pilates I know some Pilates instructors specialize in DR. Unfortunately, I’m pregnant and have some Separation already occurring:( but you ladies have motivated me that it’s not the end of the world :)

To the OP, I also immediately lost the weight (wish I was tiny before and I could care less about what the scale says but more so about how to fix and target my midsection where it’s wrinkly it’s so hard to tone up)but struggle with everything you’re saying I just wonder if I should get checked For diastis recti, it’s not easily seen on myself and I’ve tried to self check in I don’t feel an ab separation but I feel like my quiet when your postpartum is very much weak and hard to engage during exercises I’m really wondering if maybe I have one

You could also check to see if there is any doming or bulging in the middle of your stomach like when doing a sit up. Its not just about the width of the separation, but more importantly the thickness of the tissue between

It can’t hurt to get it checked! Also if your back hurts that can be a part of it those muscles are so important I know my back hurts carrying my baby or lifting things heavy but yeah definitely trying to build my core

Gina I bought a derma roller immediately which took away the big bright purple stretch marks that I got on my stomach while pregnant which didn’t appear until 33 or 34 weeks but I targeted them immediately and use Retin-A cream and I swear they’re like gone other than the wrinkly Texter left from them there’s no white or anything just wrinkly skin ew. But the derma roller is gold and got it cheap on Amazon if anyone’s interested in trying that it’s definitely affective and a lot of exercise!!! And I second, exactly what Gina said about connecting to breath work and reconstructing your quarterback together so pelvic tilt’s and all that should not be left out
