So first I’m not sure where this post should “go”, but I think this would probably fit best here… appologies if it should be elsewhere.
Okay so for those of you who had a c-section did you have any trouble/ issues with getting back into exercising?
After I was “cleared” by my OB at my 6w pp check up to start exercising I waited about another week/ week and a half before I started. I began doing a DVD routine at home and at 8w pp I was bleeding again. Has this happened to anyone else? I was thinking that I was “doing too much”, but when does that phase end?! I just want to be able to move on, and start to feel better about this new mommy shape I’ve got.

Unfortunately I have no advice (still pregnant with my first baby) but I am commenting to bump this for you. Have you called your OB since you started bleeding?

I would call your doc. I had an easy recovery and know that i was lucky to bounce back so quickly so I may not have the best advice. But I still think that bleeding that long after surgery may be cause for concern. Good luck!

I had two c-sections and both times I resumed my workout routines at 6 weeks pp (spinning classes and 30 day shred, to give you an idea of my intensity level). There was no bleeding.
Prior to 6 weeks, I would take walks, and even slow, short distances would make the bleeding worse so I stopped…
you are probably doing more than what your body can handle right now and it’s telling you to slow down, but I wouls still call my doctor to check out what’s going on…

oh, and first baby I bled for the whole 6 weeks pp, second baby, 5 weeks pp.

@julia924: Maybe you could just try walking. I waited probably 3 months until I started actually “working out” but I was walking for a while before that!
I didn’t bleed at all post partum though I think I was an anomaly.
