How long after your vaginal or C-section birth (please specify which you had) before you were able to start back working out? I’m really into working out and know that would help me gain some normalcy after having a child (not now, but in the future). Wondering if I’m being irrational in thinking I can get back to it sooner than later.

I had a c section. i was up and moving around fairly easily pretty quickly. But, I tried an extended walk at about 4 1/2 weeks and i was hurting for several days following that. And not just “sore muscle” hurt, like “I’m tearing my insides” hurt. At about 6 weeks I was able to go for 4+ miles walk and would add in shoert intervals of running. I ran 20-25 miles per week pre pregnancy and it’s taking me some time to get my distances back up. it really feels like I’m starting over and I did run well into my pregnancy.

I had a vaginal birth and i started working out 6 weeks after birth. I started walking and i would do some of the programs that came on exercise tv ( thats with Time Warner Cable). Now my son is 24 months and i am back in full stride with running and tennis. It helps that Fiance is really into working out so we do it together.

You ladies are giving me hope. Though insides tearing out does NOT sound pleasant
