Or in short, split stomach muscles?
DD gave it to me and it never fixed itself. I was wondering if it can cause problems in later pregnancies?
It doesn't bother me, other than the pudge that doesn't go away, but with all my organs moving around because of the Blueberry, I've been concerned.
Anyone know anything about it?

I don't have it now but I know babies are born with it. I asked my son's pedi because I thought his belly was weird and he told me it's normal and it closes on it's own.
If yours never closed (after pregnancy) maybe you should ask your dr.
When I started exercising after my son, the trainer made sure mine was closed to be able to do ab crunches.
But I really don't know what the effects are. It seems kinda normal if babies have them but I don't know for sure what would do to an adult.

Mine was HUGE with the twins. I had almost 4 finger widths in between my muscles after they were born. I worked on them and got them so they were only about 1 and a half fingers apart. It's not nice! If you have it once, you're likely to get it with each pregnancy. There are some thing recommended like certain exercises (not sit ups) and not carrying too much weight during or after pregnancy. I don't think there is much you can do to prevent it though.

Mine was 4-5 finger width after she was born, now it's 2-3. Not too bad.
I'm just worried with everything moving around, it'll cause complications. My main one is organs squeezing through it or something I'm not concerned about it getting worse. Eventually if it gets bad enough, they'll have to fix it..
I've heard that medical insurance refuses to cover fixing it, since it requires pretty much a tummy tuck.
But I never really asked my Dr about it.

^^^ my insurance will only cover it if you get a hernia with it.

I wonder if they'd see my history and decide it should be repaired? I had a bellybutton hernia until I was three.. so hernias there are already in my medical history (though it wasn't repaired. It fixed itself)

My first caused it for me, but other than never being able to get a six pack again it's never caused me any problems.
