I've been told I've got division of recti sheath?

.im only 31 weeks how will this affect my pregnancy? I had a relatively big baby 11 years ago and got pretty big...i had an episiotomy and forcep delivery but have spend the last 9 years training in the gym, watching my weight and food intake (size 10/12) so im pretty shocked and concerned by this. No one seems to be giving me any answers and my tummy has dropped a lot will it affect me giving birth? Thanks Emma

Hard to evaluate your question without a physical exam but I would defer this answer to your OB.
