“I’m a moron,” the Christina on the Coast star, 36, captioned a Tuesday, September 24, Instagram post. “I felt totally fine since one week postpartum, like, zero pain … but I was resting and taking it easy … and then I threw Tay[lor] a birthday party and was lifting and running around all weekend. Yesterday I woke up like, ‘Oh, crap,’ and today ‘Oh, crap’ turned into ‘Oh, s—t.’”

The Flip or Flop star, who also shares Taylor, 8, and Brayden, 3, with her ex-husband, Tarek El Moussa, went on to write, “I definitely hurt myself. It’s not the C-section incision area that hurts, it’s my left abdomen and it hurts bad. So please, anyone who just had a baby, don’t overdue [sic] it. I always want to be the people pleaser in the family and make sure everyone knows how much I care about them, but in doing so, I wasn’t taking care of myself. Back to bed rest and baby cuddles.”
