8 months post c section- still look pregnant??
OP, you perfectly described me except I am almost 39 months post C-section # 2. It's called diastasis recti. Your abdominal muscles haven't come back together and your belly (internal organs, etc) is protruding because of it. I haven't done anything about it yet. However, I will be buying myself a 40th birthday present in the next few weeks... http://diastasisrehab.com/ along with a gym membership. I would advise you to google diastasis recti and learn about it. Check out that website too. I am hoping for a miracle to avoid future surgery. It sucks. I still wear some of my maternity t-shirts to try and hide it. I have been mistaken for being pregnant once or twice. I use to be a tiny little thing, but this belly I have makes it look the opposite. The thing that makes me mad though is that none of my doctors (pregnancy #1 and #2) told me about this. I definitely had it after pregnancy #1, but didn't realize it at that time. Then, got pregnant again and it got worse. Finally, after maybe a year after second kid I started doing my own research and figured out what was wrong. OB's don't know anything about this and they should.
