1) able to exercise at high impact?
2) able to feel comfortable being nude or even scantily clad in front of people?
3) able to be intimate with your SO?

2) Nude - day after I came home from the hospital... everyone saw my pussy, I didn't give a shit anymore LOL

3) 3-4 weeks (4 weeks my oldest and 3 weeks with my youngest) for sex

1)I started exercising after my 6 week final appointment - but started off slowly.... I wasn't too concerned to jump back in with exercising as I had lost all my pregnancy weight except 5 lbs by then.

2)Heck, my DS is almost 2 and I am still self-concious of my "baby belly", I just make sure to wear swimsuits that "suck it in".  But, I have also come to accept it that no matter how much I exercise, it is likely not going to go away completely...

3)I waited to have sex until after my 6 week appointment with both of my kiddos.... honestly didn't know there was another option!

Just had my baby on Tuesday of last week. I was down for three days and since then got up and started to slowly get back into routine. I am going to start with Yoga today and I have been walking more and more. I might even go to the store by myself today to pick up some stuff while my husband watches the kids. My doctor gave me six weeks to heal from everything before I get back into working out and being intimate with my husband. Week one has been good so I will see how week two is going. I am no longer on pain meds so I am taking that as a good sign. 

As for being naked in front of my SO and such lol I have always been comfortable with my body. Right now I have the porn star boobs thanks to breast feeding and my stomach has been slowly getting smaller so I am getting a lot of attention while I am out.

Exercise: 8-10 weeks because I'm a heavy bleeder and that makes it continue longer

I wore a bikini 4 weeks later. It was summer and hot so I didn't care

Sex is as soon as I feel up to it, but with my fertility we wait the 6 weeks for intercourse but other things are usually going on by 2 weeks

1 ) high impact don't remember but I started going on long walks 2-3 times a day within a few weeks with dog and baby in stroller

2) don't remember either I think with 4 weeks or so or as soon as I fit in my old jeans again

3) I waited the whole 6 weeks as I was in danger of getting pregnant again and also I was constantly bleeding for the first 5 weeks

#1, I never did.
#2, immediately. I'm not shy.
#3, after about a week. Yes I am well aware that I should have waited 6 weeks but I didn't.

I didn't exercise high impact but that was just my choice.  As for the sex thing it was a few days after my six week appointment and even though it sounded good before that I'm glad I waited because there was still some swelling and soreness even at six weeks pp.  The naked bit - well....that's a work in progress.  I actually feel better now seven months  pregnant with my second than I did after my first was born.  Hated the jiggle tummy that wouldn't go away.  A side benefit though was my boobs did look great from nursing so that helpd for sure!

It took a LONG time for me to heal after a horrendous tear I wasn't able to sit or walk normally for 6 months, things went horribly wrong. I couldn't ride a bike for 2 years. Naked was right away, and sex was 3 months and took quite a few attempts to resemble anything like actual sex. Baby #2 was a c sec and was like a breeze compared to all of that lol!
