Pelvic floor after baby

I'm 8 weeks postnatal, and try to do pelvic floor exercises whenever I remember, but when I try to stop urine flow (occasionally to check whether it's improving), it takes me a good 4-5 seconds to stop. Should it be better than that by now or is that normal?

The best thing to do is to go and see a women's health physio.
They can do an assessment and make sure you are doing your PFE's correctly. They have tools such as ultrasound and bio feedback devices to assess pelvic floor function.
Don't just quietly wonder if your pelvic floor is ok or not - for peace of mind if nothing else get it checked out.
