My abdomen is still really tender/sore. I'm pretty sure it's the stomach muscles. I do have a stomach muscle separation and a hernia but I thought the stomach muscle separation wasn't supposed to hurt? It could be the hernia but mine is really tiny (I'm not even sure I can feel it anymore) and I would think if it was the hernia, it would just hurt in that spot, not all over (from sternum to below belly button but especially the part from the belly button up.)
I just got a book out of the library ("Lose Your Mummy Tummy") and she said front carriers are terrible for diastatis recti (the stomach separation). I use front carriers all the time. And she did say you might have soreness around your belly button but I can't any other references to tummy pain this far postpartum online.
Any thoughts? I asked my nurse midwife at my 6 week check up and she said to give it more time but I'm wondering if I should go see my primary care?
