Mainly for you KX and Lucy, stomach muscle seperation. From having one physio tell me during my pregnancy that I will never be able to correct my degree of seperation without surgery . . . Your wrong!!!! I had the furthest extent of seperation possible at 4 finger widths, When I went to see another physio after 6 weeks this had gone down to 3 fingers and she was confident that with me continuting to do the correct exercises I would reduce this a firther finger width within another 6 weeks and then be able to return to normal exercise as 2 fingers or less is considered the safe point. Well the last few days I thought my stomach seemed flatter and I checked last night, and the gap is now down to 2 fingers within 3 weeks!! Im feeling a lot more positive and happy that I will be able to start normal exercising. So for those of you worried about the abdominals, just do the correct exercises and you will get it better!!
