I had a 7lb tumor removed from my abdomen and the doc did muscle repair with permanent stitches will this cause problems with future pregnancy?

No.: A muscle cut for surgery and then repaired is not going to be as strong as one never operated upon. So, with pregnancy the area of the incision could stretch and result in a hernia, but this would not cause any pregnancy issues or affect a baby in any way. ...Read more

Ab muscles were very very weak prior to pregnancy. As belly protrudes, will it be harder for me to sit up from laying down? Can i strain anything?

On occasion, when the diastasis (separation between the "six pack" muscles) is wide, you can see the intestines moving under the skin. This separation is not a hole (or hernia), and is not dangerous. In some circumstances, it may be repaired by a plastic surgeon, or experienced general surgeon. ...Read more

Is it normal to feel little spasms and twitches in lower abdomen during early pregnancy. Also what feelings are normal during early pregnancy. ?

The risk of a pregnancy in the tube is about 1-2/1000 but needs to be dealt with. Otherwise generally nausea early. ...Read more
