'Flip or Flop' star Christina Anstead on bed rest following birth of son

"Flip or Flop" star Christina Anstead is on bed rest three weeks after the birth of her son with husband Ant Anstead.

Christina, 36, posted a photo with her newborn Hudson from bed, looking weary.

"Welll... I’m a moron. I felt totally fine since one week postpartum- like zero pain... but I was resting and taking it easy ... and then I threw Tay a bday party and was lifting and running around all weekend... and yesterday I woke up like oh crap ... and today oh crap turned into oh sh** - I definitely hurt myself," she wrote on Tuesday.

Back to bed rest and baby cuddles," she added.
