I developed one with my pregnancy with dd2, and it still hasn't gone away, although truthfully I haven't done anything to HELP it go away. When I'm standing up (in the shower, for instance) and lean back you can see a bulge all the way down from breastbone to belly button.
I have heard that after you have the baby you have to be careful not to start exercise too early or it will make it worse.
Don't feel fat and broken! Your body is going through he!! trying to bring new life into the world. That's miraculous and your battle scars are something to be proud of.
267: Highest known weight
242.5: Weight on dd's 1st birthday
213: Weight on day I delivered dd (Whooshed past on 7/6/10)
200: Weight on day I went home from hospital after delivering dd (MET!! 1/24/11)
180: Lowest weight ever as an adult
170: Initial goal weight (subject to change)
