with my last baby (now over 2.5yo) i developed diastasis rectus (split abdominal muscles) and kept meaning to get around to 'fixing' them with a certain kind of crunch. now that i'm pg again, i'm actually starting to do these crunches every day and feel a difference already these past 2 weeks. I read on the web that you can do the exercises up till 4 months. Anyone have experience with this? The thought of a pendulous abdomen 6 months from now and achy back really has me motivated for now. anyone doing this too?

this is one link...my computer is being buggy so I'll try to get the other link in a minute.

since the uterus is a pelvic, not abdominal organ, till 12+ weeks it makes sense it would be okay...
