So there are definitely some things a post-preggers woman is supposed to steer clear of for a better recovery… no heavy lifting and avoiding certain “physical activities” is another. You mothers (and fathers I suppose) know what I’m talking about. For most women, the doc gives you a six week window. But if you had a c-section, that time frame is pushed back another two whole weeks!
Now don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t exactly in the mood to be working-it gangbuster-style post-partum, but eight weeks is an awfully long time. Though it seems like so much longer. Certainly there comes a point during those 10 lunar months of pregnancy when one just doesn’t navigate the ins-and-outs of “physical activity” like one used to.
But with Holden’s 8 week birthday a week ago Sunday, I am happy to report that after a SERIOUS DRY SPELL the drought is over!
I admit, I needed to take it slow at first… didn’t want to be in over my head with advanced positions and the like. And granted my stamina just isn’t what it used to be. But it felt so great to be engaging in “physical activity.”
Just thinking about it makes me smile…
Hmmm, everyone knows I’m talking about attending my first yoga class post-natal, right?
