As you are losing fat you might have noticed that the fat where you have put up last you are able to lose it first.
This is normal and the fat which was deposited early you will lose last.

I want to congratulate your schedule and i would suggest you to do regular sustained cardio along with all the forms of physical exercise you are undertaking.

Have a healthy balanced diet and plan a diet chart with your dietician and follow it religiously.

Over a period of time you will lose your abdominal fat. Avoid deep fries, sweets, chocolates, desserts, fats, junk food and fast foods.

Take care!

That's an incredible routine.
First if you haven't used the exercise or weight trackers I would recommend those. They help to see trends over time. With all the exercise you are doing you are probably building up muscle and so your body is getting toned. Now as you lose fat (you don't have much to lose) you will start to see more of the definition. The key to losing the stomach will be watching what you eat. Try cutting down on carbs such as pasta and bread as those go straight to the gut. Increase the protein so that you have the nutrients for your muscles to rebuild and grown. Don't worry if you don't lose weight as the muscles weigh more more than the fat they are replacing. Also, make sure you watch for injuries and are stretching and warming up and cooling down.

Don't be discouraged you are nearly there.
Good luck.
