Between my tummy button and my ribs, my stomach muscles haven't come back together entirely. There's about a finger's width in the middle. Is that normal?

My stomach muscles totally separated after pg and childbirth. I had physio and she said that to get back to 1 finger width is good so yours sounds normal.

Stomach muscles - what are those? That you can actually feel them in the first place sounds like good news to me!!!
