AwkwardCoconut:  your doctor okayed you to exercise two weeks after delivery?!?  I had a very easy vaginal delivery, with minimal tearing and I still had to wait the standard 6 weeks.  Same from all of the monmies I’ve spoken to IRL.  

I’m curious why your doctor okayed exercise so early. Did he/she tell you why.  I’d be worried about putting that much strain on my vagina.

futureSydow:  the first time,  I continued doing everything I was doing (running, barre classes, etc.) until the third trimester.  Then I started to slow down, but stuck to prenatal yoga and nice, long walks.  My doctor okayed all of it.

This time around, I have a shortened cervix, so no sex, let alone weight lifting.  Follow your doctor’s instructions and listen to your body.
