How long after having your first baby is it ok to exercise?
And how long did it take for you to feel comfortable in your body again?
Did breast feeding help you loose some of the weight?



I have 6 days until my due date and feel really fat and i have thunder thighs! and a few strech marks on my tummy i just can't ever imagine feeling sexy again! :(
Everyone says because im young i will bounce back I Have put on just over a stone is that normal?

I think you're supposed to wait until your doctor gives you the okay.
Usually at your six week PP appointment.



Correct me if wrong. Longer if its a C-section.

i had a csection with certain complication so although i was given the ok to do light exercise at about 6 week appointment (like walking) i couldnt do much more then that for a couple months.
