did anybody jump right into an exercise program immediately after their six week check-up? my first son was an emergency c-section, and i remember feeling perfectly fine and beginning light exercise by four weeks. however this time around, i have a pretty rigorous training program set up at about seven weeks after i give birth.
so, does anybody have an experience like that? did any problems arise with starting an exercise regime so early?
I'm not sure it's a good idea. Remember this is your second c section and (second baby?) so things aren't going to be the same as they were last time. I had a rude awakening when my son was just born. I remember the old advice of "sleep when the baby sleeps" and when you have two or more children, that no longer applies. I really didn't think about that beforehand and not getting enough sleep has slowed me down quite a bit. I don't think it's good to set unrealistic goals for yourself or you could just end up making things worse. Just play it by ear,if everything goes fine and you get enough sleep and enough time to take care of everything else plus jump on this exercise routine then you go girl. I had my son almost 2 months ago, and I have just started walking on the treadmill for 30 minutes a day and that's all I have time and energy for.
