So I have diastasis recti from my last kids (at it's worst you could put four fingers in my stomach all the way up to your middle knuckles when I engaged my abs) and I did a lot of work closing them, a large part of which involves going around consciously making sure that I'm always envisioning zipping my middle back together and engaging my trans abs as much as possible. Now that I'm almost 11 weeks, I decided to see what would happen if I just let things relax and it is a very definite bump. Like the same size as when I was 24 weeks pregnant with my second, lol. At what point do you just let it hang out? I'm not quite sure I'm ready for it to be super obvious.
I guess on the plus side I won't have to go through the is she fat or is she pregnant stage.

Oh this is most definitely a bump. I've only gained like 1 lb and I'm huge already. I had to wear a maternity dress to church today lol. And my regular t-shirts don't cover the bottom of my tummy anymore bwahaha...
(Just FYI diastasis recti is when your abdominal wall seperates into two halves, so now that there is no actual solid wall to hold things in, any extra pressure will push everything out)

Well I take that back about gaining only a lb. My belly is sticking further and further out and the doctor at my appointment today said to eat more because I'm losing too much weight. I've dropped a couple lbs the last few weeks.
