Belly pain with high impact exercise

I am 7 weeks PP and cleared to exercise.  I tried doing a workout video, but really had belly pain doing anything jumping around (jumping jacks, jump rope etc).  Anything to do to help this, or will it just get better with time.  Also dr said I can do anything, are ab exercises a good idea yet?

  • Take it easy. It will get better with time. I couldn't do high impact or ab exercises when I started exercising at 9 wks pp. I modified the ab exercises heavily and didn't run or jump for weeks.

  • Thanks!  I was a little surprised my dr didn't give me any real guidelines - but I guess everyone heals differently.  I'll just listen to my body with how things feel

    If the belly pain is just with high impact aerobics, it's probably from scar tissue. Picture a wound healing and basically adhering to the area around it. Once you begin your exercises, it probably pulls on the area that has adhered together. I agree with just listening to your body on that one.

  • As far as ab exercises are concerned, I would start off with planks instead of crunches.  They might be easier to handle this early after.
