Belly button hurnia

I had twins 3 months ago. I started at 125#' and gained 32 all in my stomach...it was astonishing just looking at me.  Since then I have THE MOST horrible looking stomach that sinks into a hole when I lay down and then falls outta my stomach when I stand up. With a belly button that sticks out an inch or more past my stomach.  O only have minor stomach pain, but the emotional part is the worst, Ive been wearing stomach supports since.  Have not been to my post-natal appt yet, Im dreading it. But I know I need to make one...just scared of what I might here. Check these pics out. And I the only one dleaing with this..I feel like such an alien...

Why did you not go to your post natal appt. 6 weeks out?  Make one ASAP so you can see what is going on....a sick momma is not good for two new babies.

I had the same problem.My baby 9 weeks.The Dr.diagnosed it as umbrical hernia with seperated stomach muscels.I will have surgery 01/08 for the hernia repair and abdominoplasty(tummy tuck).For finance help try carecredit,many doctors will accept this program.
