I had two babies in the last four years. My second was born in May 2011. My abdominal muscles split with diastasis recti but they're only apart about 2 finger widths. The thing that worries me is that when I palpate my abdominal muscles--meaning the two long vertical ones on either side of my belly button--they feel sore. For a while, I thought this pain was just one of those unspoken results of pregnancy that would eventually go away. But my youngest is almost 15 months and it's still here. I've googled diastasis recti quite a bit and almost everything I've read says it's supposed to be painless.
Does anyone else have this pain?
