  • It didn't take me long. Soon as I had mine, a couple hours later i was walking around. I was back to my normality in about two weeks.

  • I would say about 2 to three weeks, it was 23 years ago I had one, so I can't remember, but it wasn't that long.

  • I think I remember it taking me about 2 weeks to feel "normal" again but I was still cautious about my activities and the lifting for another 2 weeks after that. My aunt pushed her self way too hard and even went back to work at 2 weeks post baby and ended up tearing and getting infections. It was awful! Just seeing that was enough to scar me for life

  • After 2 wks I was back to walking. By 5 weeks I was running a little after my 6 wk checkup I was back to running at a slow pace. It probably took me about another month to get back to my old pace. I was also considered an "older" mom with both of my boys. 36 when I had my 1st and 39 with my second.
