In brief: Keep working out

As you become more fit you should experience less pain with the same intensity workout.
If the cramps continue see an orthopaedic surgeon who will evaluate you for a possible abdominal wall herniation from your c-section. If you recently had the c-section ask your OB when it is safe to do situps. Good luck.
