Mummy Tummy or an age thing?

It’s not a great photo, but I think it demonstrates my issue well.  Obviously my top was pulled down and ruffled up as a disguise whilst at work, but I can barely contain my shock when I see that little bulge there mid- afternoon (pulling on the zip like that).  I remember my mum, other mums and the general old women population sauntering around in their high-waisted “slacks”, blouse tucked in, tan belt and that weird bulgy thing happening just below the waistband.  It seems it’s happening to me now.  I really don’t know what to do.  I’m a size 10 (ok, some things might be a little tight these days – but mostly 10) and I don’t eat a tonne of food. Admittedly I’m 40, I’m a twice C-section receiver and I have no time to exercise regularly (I do yoga once a week).  First thing in the morning, it’s lovely and flat, what the hell happens?  Would exercise and tummy exercises help? *sobs and heads to fridge for comfort food*.
