Curious if any of you mamas have a known diastasis recti (or abdominal separation).
I had a very small separation (1 finger or so) that never fully closed after my daughter was born in 2010.
However in recent days with this pregnancy, it has become GINORMOUS. Probably 4-5 fingers easily. My belly is huge (I look about 33 or 34 weeks pregnant) and I can actually feel a small umbilical hernia poking out. It hurts occasionally.
My midwife told me to deal with it after labor with the Tupler Technique to see if the hernia heals, and if not, get surgery for it :( However I am getting a little anxious about pushing during labor-- what if I rip my abs open from stem to stern?
Anyone else dealing with this?
