Warning: Gross Stuff to Follow.
When I was getting my pregnancy massages, the LMT warned me that my abdominal muscles might separate. Well, what he should have said was "your abdominal muscles will separate" because that is exactly what has happened. Between my huge son (8.75 lbs) and C-Section to remove said giant son, combined with massive infection and already being overweight, I was doomed. The baby stretched the fascia around my ab muscles and the C-Section sliced through my lower muscles (about five layers!). After all that, my abdomen filled with fluid and the whole thing was stretched back out, and it was full of over a liter of fluid which weighed it down. So here I am with a saggy abdomen filled with infectious fluid - yum. After my six days in the hospital (a week after I came home with 4L), I had a huge hole in my abdomen, wasn't allowed to move (ok, I could move, but I wasn't really supposed to do much & definitely not allowed to lift anything other than the baby!), and my fat ass has a stupid pooch. But it's not really a pooch - it's a pouch - and I'm thinking "Fuck man, there is NO exercise I'll be able to do anytime soon to get rid of this bullshit." Come to find out, there is no exercise I'll ever be able to do to get rid of my stretched out pouchy abdomen - once the muscles stretch and separate from the fascia, that's it. The only way to fix it is with a tummy tuck.

Ok, time for a nap.
