[email protected]:OMG I TOTALLY HAVE THIS!!! Since I started showing. DH thought it was the baby. Heh heh. Not even close, my SIL is a nurse and says it has to do with the muscles seperating. It is soooo funny looking. DH and I laugh about it all the time!
This, it's the muscles separating, think of a hernia the way the muscle bulges.
mistywhite400: when I sit up from a leaned back or laying position It looks like the sides of my belly are sucked in & the baby is right down the middle causing it not to sink in. I just assumed it was baby. Dont know if this is what you're talking about
This sounds like it. It looks like a big point/bulge going all the way from top to buttom. It's just weird. I didn't know it could be baby, since its pretty narrow...?
This muscle separation that PP mentioned....I assume this is normal and the muslces will go back together like normal?
mom2binKC:Look up diastasis recti, and see if that seems like what you're experiencing. It's a separation of the abdominal muscles that sometimes occurs during pg. It usually clears up on it's own a while after delivery.
