I am pretty sure I have a hernia with this pregnancy. It is my 3rd pregnancy and I got pregnant only 7 months after giving birth to my second. My muscles separated while I was pregnant and I never got the chance to heal or lose weight. I have a noticeable bulge directly above my belly button and it is painful when I cough, bend over, eat a large meal, or walk too much. I called my doctors office today and the doctor was out for the day. They told me if I felt it was emergent to head to the ER. Well, I don't think it is an emergency it is just annoying. So, we moved up my appointment. I am sure they will do an ultrasound to check it our. Now I have been googling this and driving myself crazy with all the possible outcomes. I was wondering for anyone who has been put under for any type of surgery how far along were you? What kind of surgery did you have? How did the baby handle it? Any complications? Did you deliver early? I am getting way ahead of myself here, but my anxiety and the what ifs are kicking in so I had to ask.
