How frustrating this must be for you. I have read through the 11 responses given already to your request hoping for either some ideas or something to trigger an idea of my own. I, too, am like so many of the others who have written. I had a c-section 15 months ago (on Tuesday) and have the same problem. I only gained about 15 pounds through the entire pregnancy, and by my 6 week check, I was 12 pounds below pre-pregnancy weight. I still have that "pouch," and the dr says that it is skin, not fat. I believe that it may go away on it's own, but that is to be determined by genetics and your age, not how hard you work at it. If you have very elastic skin and you are young-er, you have more of a chance of the skin rebounding to it's original state. Unfortunately for me, I have neither on my side at this point--I'm not "older", but I'm not 21 anymore. My mother had 2 c-sections and I believe that it went away after me, but not my brother (#2). But, I'm not completely certain. Another thing is that I have numbness on the right side of my scar and above it to almost my belly button--again, I'm told that it is completely normal and could take up to a year or more to regain the feeling--if ever! Whenever I happen to complain (like trying to get dressed nicely to go out) my dear, dear husband tells me to be proud and not hide anything--I did a lot of beautiful and miraculous things during those pregnancy months, and that I have nothing to be ashamed of or dismayed about.
