So I had my beautiful baby boy 6 weeks ago and I began doing More Chair last week and have moved onto More the last few days. I feel great!
My first baby was a c-section with a very difficult labor and recovery. This time I had a successful VBAC and they said I pushed like a "veteran" mom! I think I have T-Tapp to thank for keeping my abdominals strong throughout my pregnancy which served me well during pushing! While I didn't Tapp as much as I had wanted and had some health issues towards the end of my pregnancy, I just always tried to keep my "butt tucked, shoulders back" as much as I could when sitting, standing, and any activities. I would try to do plies every night when I brushed my teeth.
So, I think just these little bits of activity really helped - I was in much better shape than my first pregnancy where I was so worn out I basically gave up and spent the last month on my couch. Whereas I was still walking at a slow pace for exercise in my last month this time. Oh, and another testimonial for proper alignment: before T-Tapp I suffered chronic knee pain, and I STILL have NO KNEE PAIN despite gaining 30 pounds and no hip pain either - my first pregnancy I was using a walker in my final weeks and had lots of muscle/ligament weakness in my hips/pelvis.
All this to say how I have not left T-Tapp and I'm actually excited to be starting to get back into my routines again! I'm so grateful I found T-Tapp after my first baby and know that it is a healthy way to get back in shape without punishing myself.
