After Pregnancy Bell Fat - due to weight issues before pregnancy?

I was wondering why some women bounce back to their flat bellies after pregnancy while others get all stretched with hanging skin? Is it a combination of age and genetics? Does it matter what weight/body shape you had before pregnancy? If you are overweight then stretch the stomach out even more, will you have a higher chance of this happening? Or if you are very tiny and stretch it out with 30-50lbs do you have a higher chance of this happening?

I guess i am considered the one that bounced back to my old shape after pregnancy.i gained 35 lbs and I was really in shape before i got pregnant and i worked out my entire pregnancy including standing ab exercises, which probably made me bouce back so quick. I am two months pp, but my muscles still are not the same it takes a while to heal. But anybody can get rid of belly fat post pregnancy or not. About the extra skin, i am not sure what causes that but it may be bc of age bc your skin gets less elastic you know? Hope that helped a little bit..
