Thread: Weird..

    Default Weird..

    Well I'm almost 33 weeks and I was wondering if anyone can give me a reason for something..
    For about the last couple of months if I lay on my back and lift my head a little or tense my stomach like I'm going to sit up or move it had this ridge from my belly button up and it's just getting worse and I was wondering if anyone knows what would cause this. :-/ I've tried google but I'm at a loss, unless it's abdominal separation.. Thanks in advance for any help!

    P.s. sorry if my posts or replies are hard to understand.. I have to use my phone to get on here and it's hard to make sure stuff is right on here.

    It must be a muscle separation and belly button protrusion which is normal and should go within 6-9 months after birth unless you have post partum hernia like I do. I would advise you against laying flat on your back or doing any exercise like crunches. Also I would bring it up with your doctor especially if the area hurts. Try not lifting anything from bending down position and in general avoid lifting heavy things (says me who had to pick up her toddler every day )

    I didn't read anything in your post that suggested separation ... if it's one defined ridge it just sounds like ab muscles flexing to me. I noticed it a lot with DS2. Just strong stomach muscles on top of baby, really. ;)

    My stomach muscles will ridge up vertically when I sit up. This happens even when I am not pregnant but did not happen prior to my first pregnancy. So it sounds perfectly normal to me.
