Hi,
My name is Jennifer and I just gave birth to my 3rd baby on June 30th. No exercising yet, but I started tracking my food. It's nice to see where/what I need to improve on. I'm looking to connect with other postpartum ladies out there.
Thanks!

    Its been a while since I was in the postpartum camp, but I did use MFP through that time.

    Check out the info in the second half of this thread:

    And this group is active and has some great ladies in it.

    @Mamaof3JF Congrats on your baby! I am not postpartum any more. My little guy is 15 months. He was my first C-section. I have been trying to get my stomach back to normal. My stomach muscles were shot after that. I am doing some Diastasis Recti moves to see if that will help! Good luck on your journey!

    Hello Mama-
    Welcome baby. My little one will be two next month. Sending positive vibes for a healthy journey toward getting fit.

    Hi! My youngest is 9 months. I had Gestational diabetes so didn’t gain weight during my pregnancy and three weeks after delivery I weighed 20 pounds less than I did when I conceived.

    BUT... I gained 20 pounds in the months following, and I’m trying to get it back off and then some. I’ve also had 2 c-sections and my abs are shot.

    I just had a baby for a couple so I was a surrogate. Two months today! My body is definitely not use to working out still and I had 20 stitches so I haven’t been cleared yet to workout, but I’ve been tracking my food and walking try to get 10-12 thousand steps in a day

    I had my first in February. I had gestational diabetes and only gained 9 pounds. I’ve lost that already but I still have a long way to go before I hit a healthy weight. I lost 60 pounds before on MFP but gained most of it back. I started tracking my food and am starting out slow with a 1 pound per week goal. Feel free to send a friend request!
