Hello Cheryl Reese,
Congratulations on the birth of your child.
Ariadne Greenberg has given you a wonderful article that is worth reading. You will want to be careful as you are still recuperating from a major change in your body. I feel your motivation; but, this is the time to care for both yourself and baby.
Slow and steady wins the race. It may be wisest to print the IDEA article and take it to the doctor for advice.
Enjoy your family.
