Diastasis Recti - Pregnancy Update #41

At one of my trips to the doctor, I questioned the funky "ridge" I have on my belly when I lay on my back and sit up. I was informed by my doctor that I have diastasis recti. It sounds like something in the bowel movement area, but in reality, it's a split in my abdominal muscles. It is common for pregnant women and there is no guarantee my muscles will go back to their normal area...let's just keep our fingers crossed and hope they do. I'm pretty sure I'll have enough things happen to my body that will cause me to never be normal or have my pre-pregnancy body back....let's hope I don't have to add this to the list!
