  • Yes, you can get those from pushing. I would think that it would have shown up before now. You can also get them from picking up something heavy.

  • My friend had a hernia and her doc said its caused by the expansion of the uterus during pregnancy. The bigger the baby the more common.

  • What happens is that the ab muscle weakens and it can allow the intestine to push through between the weakened, stretched out muscle. The only way to correct it is via surgery. I had a hernia with my dt and they couldn't repair it while they did the c-section so I had to wait until they has to preform an operation on my cervix(I had pre-cancerous cells) and had to replace my iud, so that was 3 months later. But all is well 3.5 years later!!!!
