When I was pregnant with my second baby, everyone thought I was having twins, I was so big. It’s just that I have a short torso and am skinny so there was nowhere for the baby to go but out….. way out. Hence the extra skin. Or elephant skin as my older sister affectionately calls it (she has it too). I wasn’t nearly as large with my first pregnancy and only got a few stretch marks with that baby. (First baby was 7 pounds at birth and right on time, second was 9 pounds and 2 weeks early!!!) But I’m wondering if anyone else has had experience with this much extra skin and knows anything about whether it will go away or not or if there’s anything that will help minimize it??? I don’t mind it so much because I never particularly liked to show my belly in public before I had stretch marks and then elephant skin but it is a little annoying and I’m just wondering if it will be hanging around (literally) for the rest of my life. Thanks for the cool website and showcase for my hard earned flab! LOL
