    How can you tell the difference between saggy skin and just fat that is giving you a bit of an 'apron tummy'?

    I never got saggy skin at all after having any of my boys. I remember dh saying "you don't even have a belly" a few hours after having ds1, he must have expected I would. 😁After having ds3 I had a bigger belly than I did after having the previous 2 and I thought I may have had to work at getting rid of it but it was gone within a few weeks. My belly has gone back to being as flat as a tack after babies within months of having my babies and my boobies are as they were pre babies too ☺ I think genetics do play a part. My mum had 5 kids and was always slim like I am. My mums 3 sisters are built the same. I don't have any stretchmarks either. I do have a good diet and excercise in moderation though which I am sure helps. I've never obsessed though. I was always all baby when pregnant not putting on much weight. My weight and body shape has always popped back to what is was pre baby.

    I don't have loose skin on my belly after my pregnancies or stretch marks. I do think it's genetics, as I put on close to 20kg with my pregnancies.

    I have a bit of a saggy tummy from my first baby, which looks kind of funny especially now I'm coming up on halfway with number 2. My belly is round and hard at the top but soft and flabby at the bottom lol... I'm not too worried at this point. I intend on losing the weight one day, but every time I get pregnant I gain weight.

    Agree that it's largely genetics. My skin,apparently, doesn't cope too brilliantly with being stretched. I have a wrinkly belly covered in stretch marks. It is what it is though. My body has done a great job of growing little people, and I'm not going to focus on something I can't change.
