How long will it take for my tummy to shrink back to normal

Regular exercise following your pregnancy can help you get back to your pre-pregnancy weight more easily, improve or maintain muscle tone, reduce leg cramps, constipation and swelling and improve sleep patterns.Exercises that are beneficial during the first six months after the birth of your child include walking, swimming, post natal exercise classes, water aerobics, and low impact aerobics. You can slowly increase the intensity of your exercise program as you feel able, but avoid any pain or discomfort.Make sure your abdominal muscles and pelvic floorhave regained sufficient strength before you recommence sport, aerobics, running or heavy lifting. You will need a minimum of twelve to sixteen weeks of exercises to strengthen your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles before you return to your normal exercise routine.
