  • Ah yes I hate that. They have the $ to pay for that celebrity trainer and nannies to raise their kids while they go work on their bodies. My son is 5 weeks tomorrow and I am ready to exercise again. I can't wait another week for my appt so the doc can tell me its ok, it's time!

  • I started 20 days after the first one..just because my ex was a personal trainer... Maybe I rushed a little...

  • I started taking the baby out in the stoller for a walk (20-30 mins out, then turn and come back) about 2 weeks after delivery.
