    Diastasis Recti - Anyone?

    Went to bed last night, usually sleep on my side but ended up on my back.

    I was quite surprised to see a massive bulge running between my belly button and rib cage! looks like someone had inserted half a baguette into me!!

    Rang 111 and after a few things they suggest it's a Diastasis Recti where the abdominal muscles separate. Apparently it's common in pregnancy, weightlifting and small babies so quite how I got it is anyone's guess.

    They made an appointment with my GP for first thing Monday morning to see how bad it is and if it needs surgery so not looking forward to that!.

    Anyone else had one or know anything about them?, looking it up on Google can be a very scary experience!.

    Well, turns out my abdominal muscles have weakened rather than parted, nothing life threatening and as I'm not in pain and my insides haven't popped out (hernia!) it's basically go away and come back if it gets worse!.
