DIdn't know it really had a name...

Always called it the mommy belly.

I was really overweight before I had kids, then got even bigger with pregnancy.

It's better now, but no where near where I want it to be :(

I didn't know it had a scientific name lol! Heard alot of diff names like front butt, Dunlap, gunt (combo of gut and c*nt)...some of the names are cracking me up! I am scared to look at the grades :/

I usually refer to it as my flabby flap. :| Stupid c-section. Grade 1, apparently...I guess it's somewhat comforting to know that it could be worse.

And this is probably TMI, but for me, that will be the most awesome NSV ever--not having to hold up the flabby flap to do maintenance "down there." laugh

I'm with you all, joined in the ranks of women who have panniculuses (how is that pluralised??? laugh ) and want them GONE! I have had 5 kids, no c-sections, but with the last 2 pregnancies the excess weight went on under the baby belly and stayed put. I'm not quite even a stage 1. I've lost 24 lbs and it isn't as thick as it was, but isn't yet shrinking upwards, but I can see that with further weight loss it will.

You all have me cracking up with the different names for this thing! I just call it embarrassing. blushing

My doc sometimes calls it an apron.

Often referred to as a "Fatty apron" in medical world - prefer pannus myself

I call mine my joey pouch... you know, cuz the kangaroo carries his baby joey in his pouch... For the longest time I said with all that loose skin, I could probably fit a 9 month old back in there.

It's much much better now, but I don't think it'll ever go away on its own.
