Pregnancy took a huge toll on my body, 14 weeks of bedrest and 85 lbs gain with my first son, 45 lb gain with twins but my belly grow so big I was bigger around than I was tall! Twins shredded my abs and left me with a hernia, so after 4 years the hernia and ab muscle have given out and my stomach started bulging and hurting.
