Losing weight after having a c-section

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight after having a c-section


Avatar n tn I heard it's hard. Anyone on here have a c section and just had the weight come off by itself?
Avatar f tn m not sure about the belly bandit thing, but I do know from experience the best way for losing weight after pregnancy is breastfeeding and a healthy diet. Your body will burn upwards to 500 calories a day just exclusively breastfeeding..
Avatar f tn I am having cramping, swollen breasts. no facial hair. yes trouble losing weight. and i can definitely tell when i'm ovulating. Last time i had sex was sunday the 18th of april. I have unprotected sex, no birth control. i take minocycline for my face. no its not my first abnormal cycle. and no kids.
Avatar f tn s a 6 week wait for exercise after a vaginal birth but 12 weeks after a section to give your incision time to fully heal, cause it's not just that neat little scar on your outside but 8 layers inside as well that have all been stitched up. And even then you have to ease yourself into the exercise and not go in at fell speed.
Avatar f tn I did. I was sick the whole pregnancy and couldn't keep anything down. I had a scheduled c section at 39+5 weeks and she was only 5 pounds 3 oz because I stayed sick. Hopefully your situation turns out better. Good luck!
1373323 tn?1278566397 I had a c-section on April 15 and I wanna start exercising but is it too soon ??before getting pregnant I weighed 118 at the end of my pregnant I weighed 162 .3 weeks after having my daughter I went all the way down to 124 .now I'm 120 I still wanna lose weight and I wanna start exercising like crazy but my incision does still bother me could I start exercising??
Avatar f tn Healing from the c section was really rough. But it only took me a week to get back to normal :) I'm feeling great now though.
Avatar f tn I am breastfeeding my daughter now for more than 12weeks and just by doing that I have gone back to my pre-pregnancy pregnancy weight within 2 weeks and that's after a c-section. I'm on no special diet, I eat whatever I want whenever I want. And I'm constantly hungry because of my body generating milk. But I must say, I was lucky to not have picked up alot of weight during the pregnancy.
10815315 tn?1421907363 I know everyone is different and a lot of women say breast feeding speeds up the metabolism. I am a first time mom having a csection as well and I am concerned about the weight I've gained also.
Avatar f tn After my c-sections (3) I've been told 12 weeks before sit ups, crunches, and planks. Less intense ab exercises are okay after 6 weeks.
Avatar f tn Breast feeding worked wonders for me lol I had a c section so I didn't do much but I bres
4408078 tn?1358058398 Okay so I've heard that if you have a c section you wont lose weight. Is this true?? My doctor said I will most likely be needing a csection because my family history of narrow birth canals and because my baby probably will be too big. Can anyone share your story about having a csection and losing weight??
Avatar f tn It takes a while to fully heal internally, they say 6 weeks but honestly I'd wait just a bit longer. But, no stomach work outs, crunches, sit ups, push ups for at least 4 months. You can rip open your uterus, when they stitch you after a c sec they literally go layer by layer.
Avatar n tn I am having a c-section sept 8th my fiance is taking off that Tuesday-thursday (he is off friday-sunday) so we got pretty lucky. He is taking vacation days.
11587059 tn?1427628263 They're thinking of doing an emergency c section at 6 months which is in 3 weeks. I'm really scared.. it's starting to get really dangerous for my health and the health of the baby... I just feel like such a failure!
594189 tn?1386916607 so happy that its almost time to have my little boy and I'm scheduled for a csection December 10th!! Keep us updated on how ur appointments go(: take care.
Avatar n tn i have a daughter of 1 yrold delievered by c section. i started dieting after she was six months. i lost 8 kg in 6 months after that weight loss is halted. i routinely use whole bread and skimmed milk, have cut off all sweets and processed food. take rice twice a week and occassional treat of any sweet. 30 min brisk walk or excercise on 5 days of week. i have no other medical condition like diabetes, hypertension or hypothyroidism.
Avatar f tn They gave me meds when sewing me up that made me soooo out of it. I barely remember that first day after the hour recovery. (Except that I was absolutely starving all day, couldn't get out of bed because I had these inflating bag things on my legs, and I was catheterized until the next day!!!) I didn't know anything about birth plans or that I could have possibly had a say in anything, so definitely talk to your doctor about anything you wish to happen.
4444857 tn?1383325813 s more of the fact that my stomach is still somewhat wrinkled and jiggly, I have lost a lot of weight since having her... I gained 40 pounds and she stretched me out a lot being 9 pounds. Would the belly band work now that I'm almost 3.5 months postpartum?
Avatar f tn How can I loose weight after having a c section when you have medical problems.. I need to know how I can loose this belly fat..??
Avatar f tn So I've had a c section before and debating on a 2nd one. I see horror stories about a flat of skin that can never be removed unless u have a tummy tuck on Google...anyone no anything about it?? Had two c sections and look better than before? Or is itvsomething u just deal with?
Avatar n tn Hello...I just want to know if anyone has any similiar situation as I am so worried about ovarian cancer. In June - I had ovary pain in left side....then moved to right side....then both sides...meanwhile constipation set in. Started using laxatives to go...and could only go with laxatives.....(totally abnormal for me as I am always regular). Suspected Ovarian cyst - as I have had them before....went to OB/GYN....she thought bladder/UTI infection...
10221785 tn?1410990458 My SIL had GB and her baby come like a month early (water broke). The baby was like 6lbs. I on the hand didn't have GB, but I had 10lbs & 6oz baby last week. I was in labor for 42 hours, they tried induction for over 24 hrs, didn't work, & ended up having emergency c-section. So relax, having GB doesn't mean you will have huge baby. My friend has GB & her baby was average.
1039620 tn?1272594004 When I was 36 weeks pregnant - they estimated my son to be 6 and a half pounds, but 4 weeks later he was only 7 pounds 3 ounces at delivery right at 40 weeks - so they were off with him!
Avatar n tn had my first 2 vaginal and tore so bad on both and could barely sit after that..its alot of stitches with c section but different.
