Limit Activity: Diastasis rectii is a condition where the "6-pack" muscles of the abdominal wall no longer are attached to one another in the midline, leading to them bowing out when contracting them (it looks like a tent when you raise your head up when laying down). This is common after childbirth or with significant weight gain. This rarely causes pain, though; you may want to seek a second opinion.
