Diastasis Recti...

You need to look this up! My OBGYN's never educated me. You can really make this worse if you don't attend to it in time. A condition in which the large abdominal muscles separate. Diastasis recti is common in women who are over 35, deliver a high birth weight baby, or have a multiple pregnancy. It's usually most noticeable right after delivery. It also occurs in middle aged and older men with abdominal obesity.

I have it along with a hernia from being pregnant with twins. I have an appointment to get a tummy tuck which I got lucky because it’s being covered by my insurance. I get so much back and pelvic pain, it seems that each day it gets worse.

You can wear a quality support band around your belly while pregnant to try to prevent. But it doesn't always mean ypu won't get it. Its not just pregnant women its also ppl that are over weight. Men and women. Women are just more prone to it since we have babies and expand our bellies

I knew all about diastasis recti during my pregnancy. It is common and most women get it to an extent. It’s important to think about it while we move. You want to make sure that there isn’t any abdominal coning, while you exert yourself. Avoid sit ups, engage transverse abdominals, exhale while exerting yourself, etc. You should be able to know the extent of your DR by how far you can press your fingers into the midline of your abdomen.
