How Soon Can I Start Intense Exercise After Giving Birth
Depends on type: If you had a c-section, resume formal exercise around 6-8 weeks.

Regardless of birth mode, i would recommend gradually working back toward the level of activity you were at pre-pregnancy and checking with your OB first. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

You may start with a harmless exercise such as to lie on your belly and lift your shoulder and head as high as possible, hold for a few seconds, and repeat as often as you can. Check with your doctor for other possibilities. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Dehydration: If you are nursing (breast feeding) then you'll have increased water intake needs. During my wife's pregnancy we used to use a 5-gallon bottle of delivered water (you don't necessarily need special water, but it helps for this analogy) every 2 weeks.
