Good question. I guess I would look more into how you feel. Why does having a tummy bother you exactly? Are you uncomfortable with it when you're alone, or is it just an issue when other people are around? Do you think that is the only thing making you feel down about yourself right now?

If you want to have something done, it should be because you want it. Don't do it to try to impress anyone else.

If you think something else might be at the root of your low self-esteem, you could try therapy first.

Really, it's all about how you look at it. You could look at that tummy as a burden, or you could look at it as a reminder of your baby. Smile
