There could be a variety of things going on here. For startes, if you exercising and staying active you're probably losing fat, but gaining muscle. So while the scale may not read significant weight loss, you can still feel and be quite healthy. 

 Aside from that, losing weight after childbirth is different for each woman. Some women report losing the weight as soon as a week after birth, others take months. It's really specific to your body, how much weight you gained, how active you are, and diet.  

If you're concerend,  talk to your doctor and let them know all that you've been doing and  they will let you know if anything sounds abnormal. Good luck!
