Give your body a break — it just went through a heck of a lot of stretching and strain, and it will take time for it to recover. The good news? Your leftover bump should deflate (for the most part) within a few weeks, as your  uterus shrinks back down to its regular, plum-size proportions. As for your extra padding, get active as soon as your OB says it’s okay, eat right, and you’ll start seeing results. Remember, though, that your body went through 9 months of growing and changing. It might take just as long to feel like your old self.
