I had this wit my first pregnancy, and what ended up helping is an exercise I can best describe as "sucking your gut in, and releasing it" Basically just strengthen those muscles gently. Paying attention to posture helps too. There is also a book that was recommended to me called "Losing your Mummy Tummy." I wouldn't try crunches or sit ups of any kind! Mine took awhile to heal, but I think it did eventually, and I had no problems with my 2nd pregnancy.
