Wait another 3 weeks. You do need to walk around a little to keep blood circulating, but you don't want to do anything too strenuous. Other than that, talk to your doctor about what's safe to do.

definitely don't hurry. I had a c-section and although I recovered super quick I still waited until I had the all clear at my 6 week check up. Even now all I do is walking and swimming. I say wait until 6 weeks and spend this time just hanging with your baby :)

I had a c section 7 weeks ago. You dont want to do alot until about 6 weeks walking is about it but dont over do that either I thought I was feeling fine after 2 weeks and decide to go for a bike ride and it wasnt even that far I over did myself and I was in pain for weeks after that and I just now got to feeling better. Just walk until your 6 weeks are up then start excercising a lil at a time. But I no how it feels to want to just get the baby weight off dont stress you just had a baby its ok.

I waited 4 week and started doing the eliptical at the gym. I def suggest waiting around 6-8. My body was exhausted and I had zero energy, I woke up the next day sore and in worst condition then before. (and I think I only did 10 mins lol) Don't hurt yourself, ripping your incision or getting an infection isn't worth it. You'll lose the weight in due time. Don't stress it!!!

you should wait AT LEAST another 3 weeks and see what your doc said, I had a c section with my now 9 mo old and the dr says NOTHING heavier than the baby and LIMITED stair climing! So the answer is NO, walking, ok, but you also have to check your level of bleeding. Always go on drs recommendation!
