Awesome mama. My friend had that. I have no idea how to check that. I tried. But I probably can't check while I'm preg huh? Haha

So do you do something specific to get rid of it or is more about what you shouldn't be doing? I am lost. LOL (I think I have this - it's an indent right above my bellybutton).

you can check when youre pregnant, and you can bring it together at any time, whether youre pregnant or 10 years pp. the main thing is to engage your transverse abdominal muscle at all times. google "stomach vacuums," this is the main thing i did to bring it together.

2 - 2.5.....



Seriously - I feel REALLY mad. Right after I had my son my Dr told me it was a small hernia & not to worry it would resolve & if not it wouldn't cause any harm as long as there was no pain. I have NEVER heard this term before & had no idea how to check & have absolutely done the wrong exercises from the little bit I have just googled.. It goes from 2in above my belly button to about 2in below & is widest right behind the bellybutton. :( BTW - I seriously has the same build as you with smaller b**bs. Your PP pics coudl just abou tbe mine...that is what made me look so close. I have that little dimple above the belly button with a small bit of wrinkling of the skin too.

ALSO - thank you for posting this. If you didn't who knows - I may have never known what it was or if I could do anything about it.

I don't think I feel anything so I'm probably good right? Like what does it feel like in the empty space?

the part above my belly button is my stupid piercing, it got infected then healed so horrible with my first DS :x. ugh. one day when i have enough money i will get it removed! but yeah, it's not a hernia lol it's a diastasis. most medical professionals are pretty ignorant to it. i went to the doctor at 3 weeks postpartum and the doctor i saw (a female on top of that...) said "you're looking good for being 3 weeks pp! keep doing those sit ups and crunches" :roll:



seriously, you can close it, or maybe not close it all the way but at least bring it together significantly.

Well I can't tell it's an old piercing. Mine has never been pierced & looks similar. That is where I thought the hernia was - sine that is where you see the spot that sinks in a bit.



And I am going to work on this! THANK YOU!

You are so right about the Diastasis Rehab products. So many women have purchased this system from my store and have had rave results. You look AMAZING btw :)

I had to see my Dr about a different issue the other day & asked him about this & he said I do have it, but that it's pretty good. He did recommend I work on it if I am ever thinking of having another baby though. :/
