Does anyone else have this problem? I have asked all of my friends that have had children and I have not found one that experienced their muscles separating. I find it to be very uncomfortable and I feel like i have to hold my belly in when I get up or laugh hard because it bulges out. I noticed that it began to happen in the beginning of my second trimester but now at 28 weeks it is bad (atleast to me). I am really afraid that I am going to get stuck like this and will need to have surgery after the baby is born. What is in that gap - my uterus...intestines...? Should I be wearing something around my belly all of the time?
