Question for the moms

I have kind of an odd question for you ladies, every time I'm pregnant I get this hard hump from my belly button up to a few in. bellow my breasts that will raise up if I lean up from laying. Does anyone know what causes that I've had 3 kids and never had it happen unless I'm pregnant, I had my tubes tied 5 months ago and yesterday I noticed that it's happening again and it had gone away a few weeks after my last babies birth.

Abdominal Seperation? That sounds uncomfortable...

The abdominal muscles meet in the center front like a vertical zipper. It is very common in pregnancy for them to "un-zip." They should zip up again after delivery with some exercise. I had it with both babies.

By the way, it isn't painful at all so many don't even realize it happened.
