When did you start working out postpartum? I'm 6 days postpartum and feeling great. I'd love to start walking but it's so frigid, I don't want to expose my baby to the cold. Thinking about hopping on elliptical (we have in basement) starting next week.

Six weeks, but I didn't get serious about it until four months pp when I did a month of 30ds. My routine came back at one year pp and that was more of the motivation factor on my part.

I started walking outside with LO right away, like the day after we came home. I didn't start working out/increasing my heart rate/doing any sort of cardio til I had my 6 wk appt. I was too tired to do anything til then anyway !
ETA and didn't really ever get back into any sort of good routine unfortunately! I am finally working out somewhat regularly at 2 yrs pp because DH is home for a few months and can watch LO.

Walking right away, elliptical work around 5 weeks (a slow pace, equivalent to a walk) and weights and stuff 6 weeks Pp
Moving a lot can make you bleed more, which I didn't like

We did a lot of walking for a while...I think i started a couch to 5k around 6 weeks. I agree about the bleeding more. It sucked & was gross to be running & feel myself bleeding all over the place.
